Day Trip to Port Essington

Thanks Glenn for booking the Thunder to take your group to the historic town site of Port Essington Once a thriving cannery and supply station for the fishery on the Skeena and prior to that a first nations settlement of the Gitselasu people. Not much remains of the old site that was last inhabited in the 1950’s but the area has a rich history with many ethnic backgrounds who worked and lived in the boom days of fishing and mining at the mouth of the mighty Skeena River. Thanks again for your generous gifts of books “The Gitselasu: The People of Kitselas Canyon, and “Men of M’deek and Wars of M’deek, they make an excellent addition to our on board library. We hope to have you aboard again soon.
