Port Essington then and Now!

Rob BryceGhost Towns of Northwest BC, Jet Boat Photography Comments

Port Essington is one of the sites we will visit on both the Ghost Towns and Jet Boat Photography Tour.  The Town was named by Captain George Vancouver in 1793 after one of his Royal Navy Friends but the town already had a First Nations name of Spokeshute.  The place provides an opportunity to get some very unique photos and to explore the remnants of the people that left 100 years ago.

 

It is amazing how a once thriving town can look like it was almost never there but for those that like to explore there are thousands of items lying in on the beach and foreshore forest just as they were 100 years ago.
