Port Essington Photo Opportunities

Port Essington is another stop on our Jet Boat Photography and Ghost Towns of Northwest BC programs.  It is a remote historic that is difficult to access and coordinate.  It is located on the lower Skeena River which is impacted by 16ft tides  which makes the launching of boats and planning of activities very important.  The jet boat ride on the lower Skeena River is amazing though as we cruise past the remnants of many old canneries as this was the centre of the canneries on the Skeena River. We will explore the cannery site and the view what is left before it all disappears.  The highlights are the old boardwalk and the objects that line the forest just up from the beach.
