EEP, silent coves mirroring towering snow-capped
peaks, up whose sides march the spruce and pines of
the northland; fresh breezes from the sea or from
the cool depths of the green forests.
In all the world there are but two other such remarkable
passages, one is along the Norwegian Coast and the other
parallels Chile, on the West Coast of South America.
World travellers compare the British Columbia Coast with
the deep fjords of Norway, forgetting that it is an area so
vast that little Norway could be tucked away in a tiny corner
of it. The fact is that this northland coast defies comparison,
dwarfing all others.
The ship on which you will be a voyager is the Princess
Adelaide, of the Canadian Pacific's well-known British Columbia Coast steamship fleet. She was designed and built for coast
service, and has berth accommodation for over 200 passengers
and a dining saloon seating over 100. Stateroom accommodation is on a par with that provided on steamers operated by the
company on the Alaska Route, where the service and cuisine
bear the hallmark of the Canadian Pacific, which is world-
renowned.
This is your road to the fjords of the British Columbia
Coast, and as you pass those deep bays and majestic peaks cast
your mind back, if you will, to those early adventurers who set
out in 1791 from England.
In oaken sailing ships they came, through Magellan's Straits,
around the Horn, to arrange treaties and conduct exploration
work.
Captain George Vancouver, R. N., was their commander.
The great island which shelters the inside passage to Prince
Rupert for more than half the distance bears his name, and
Canada's leading Pacific city is proud to share its destiny with
his memory.
Vancouver unmistakably was worthy of the title "master
mariner." So accurately did he chart these strange waters that
today your ship follows, with minor alterations, the routes and
channels he wrote into the Admiralty's documents.
Others of that notable expedition, too, gave their names to
picturesque places along the British Columbia Coast. Burrard
Inlet, which is the harbor water of the City of Vancouver,
was named for Captain Sir Harry Burrard, friend of Captain
Vancouver in the Royal Navy.
The northward course out of Vancouver abounds with so
many spectacular sights that it is difficult to select the highlights.
Seymour Narrows, however, reached shortly after departure
from Vancouver, is a breath-taking sight. This boiling cauldron of swirling tides bears another name, known to mariners
and fishermen. It is the name Eucluetaw, given to the passage
by the Indians, who believed that a wicked spirit lived in the
depths, enticing, as did the Homeric sirens, hapless sailors to
their death.
A formidable whirlpool, Eucluetaw rapids pour great swirls
of water through the chasm, but to the good ship Princess
Adelaide the passage is just another stretch of water on the
seaway to Prince Rupert.
Eucluetaw sleeps only at slack tide, and then the fishing
boats, the towboats, the freighters and the sleek passenger ships
slide through on their errands up and down the busy coast.
Shiny strands of kelp float on Ripple Rock and the roaring
waters are strangely still.
Seymour Narrows safely behind, the ship steams through
Johnstone Straits, bearing another historical name, that of
Captain Vancouver's lieutenant.
Johnstone Strait, at the north end of Vancouver Island, was
found by Vancouver to lead out into the Pacific, and here,
briefly, the ocean tides remind the voyager that he is not far
from the broad Pacific.
As Captain Vancouver pushed his sailing ships northward
nearly one hundred and fifty years ago he saw Indians dressed
in strange, terrifying headdresses, while great trees carved in
the shape of mystifying animals, birds and human beings, and
stained with bright colors, adorned every community centre.
Today these totem poles delight the tourist and stimulate his
imagination.
Northward from Alert Bay, and that interesting pause to
study the relics of the aborigines, the Princess Adelaide sets
her nose for Queen Charlotte Sound. Here is a 40-mile passage through what looks like a wide, rolling bay, but which is
actually a passage to the open Pacific. Swells from the great
ocean roll in to break against British Columbia and Alaskan
reefs, but the breeze is fresh and the motion of the ship is
stimulating.
Shelter looms ahead behind a group of islands, however, and
shortly the good ship again is ploughing through unruffled
inside seas to pass Hunter Island, the narrow passage to the
right being designated by ship's officers as Dean Channel.
And this is well worth remembering. A short distance from
Dean Channel, Alexander MacKenzie arrived on the shores
of the Pacific in July, 1793, the first white man to cross the
North American Continent by land.
There stands a monument to commemorate the feat.
Scenery abounds in such beauty and profusion along this
Inside Passage that it is easy to forget that even here man must
live, and to live he must work.
Now^comes Ocean Falls, a picturesque industrial outpost of
British Columbia, and a quick reminder that here on the
northern coast man does his work and makes his profits. Ocean
Falls is known as a "company" town, living solely on the
activities of the vast Pacific Mills Limited, where newsprint
and other papers are rolled from pulp for the far corners of
the earth.
There the machines roar to turn out more than five hundred
tons of newsprint and fine, processed papers in a single day.
Over the Canadian Pacific's railway lines, its steamships, and
by other ships, these products find their way in increasing
volume to the Far East, the British Isles, the United States,
Australia and New Zealand, the Dutch East Indies, the West
Indies, Africa and South America. A visit to this great
plant, attractively situated on a wooded mountain slope, is an
education in itself.
SUNSET, PRINCE RUPERT
Close at hand, too, is the Pacific Mills' sawmill, producing
annually 70,000,000 board feet of lumber, much of which is
used in pulp for paper making.
The two thousand residents of Ocean Falls live in a modern
industrial community with attractive homes and well-kept
lawns and gardens. The community boasts of every form of
recreational activity, theatre, tennis courts and a beautiful
sixty-foot swimming pool, which is open to tourists on payment
of a small admission fee.
Ocean Falls recedes over the stern, and the Princess Adelaide
pushes on through Johnson Channel, one of the most beautiful
fjords of the northward run? and at the end of it Millbank
Sound, another passage to the open Pacific, looms up to provide another taste of the Pacific breeze.
Beyond lies Grenville Channel, another beautiful stretch of
water ringed round by heavily timbered, snow-capped peaks,
and 50 miles to the north is the entrance to the Skeena River,
headquarters of British Columbia's famed salmon industry.
Like all good things, however, this cruise must end—or at
least have a half-way mark. Such a mark, and a worthy one,
is Prince Rupert, British Columbia's third seaport.
Like Vancouver, Prince Rupert is located in a natural, landlocked harbor of great size and beauty. Over its docks pour
thousands of tons of Canadian produce, and the city ranks as
the capital of British Columbia's vast fishing industry.
BARBER, HAIRDRESSER-MANICURIST AND VALET SERVICE
A Barber and Hairdresser-Manicurist will be carried on the
"Princess Adelaide".   Valet Service is also provided.
MUSIC
The ship has an excellent dance floor, and music is provided

ENTRANCE TO OCEAN  FALLS,  B. C.
FINLAYSON  CHANNEL
a_ yiiletlm*. Ma^^oA- INLAND SEAS*
 At Alert Bay, on
a small island near
the north end of
Vancouver Island,
where your ship
calls in on the way
to Prince Rupert,
is an Indian village and burial
place, where we
get our first introduction to Totem
land, for here may
be seen a good
array of these
weird, fantastic
native carvings,
which are a distinctive feature of
northern British Columbia. Totemism is the poetry of the
Indian. As an explanation of their meaning, an educated
Indian once replied, "Our people believed in the great Spirit,
to whom they prayed and worshipped, believing that this
beautiful Spirit was everywhere. They worshipped it in the
forest, in the trees, in the flowers, in the sun and wind, in the
blades of grass, alone and far from everyone in the waters of
still lakes." The intricate figures of the Totem Pole are
supposed to be the personifications of their spirits.
Predominate in the totem is the Thunderbird, whose fearsome features usually glare down from the topmost part. This
bird, Indian legends maintain, whirred his wings when angry,
the sound was like thunder, hence the name Thunderbird.
To appease him and abate the weather, the ancient tribesmen
made votive offerings, and attempted to ameliorate his moods
by flattery, giving his image the place of honor in their tribal
escutcheons.
Whole histories of tribes, their reputation as hunters, warriors and fishermen are told on these weirdly carved totems.
Even the close student, however, is baffled by the designs, but
the ordinary passer-by finds them an arresting,
barbaric and colorful display fully as interesting as
the shields and quarterings of Westminster Abbey.

BAGGAGE
(a) 150 lbs. of baggage will be carried free on each adult
ticket and 75 lbs. on each half ticket. Charge for excess baggage,
$3.75 per 100 lbs. in each direction between Seattle, Victoria,
Vancouver and Skagway. Steamer trunks not more than 14
inches in height may be placed in staterooms. Passengers will
find it more convenient to allow trunks to be placed in the

at the above mentioned ports. Regular storage charges will
accrue after expiration of this period.
(c) Bonded Baggage.—Baggage may be checked through
from Seattle to Skagway, and if not required en route may be
forwarded under bond to avoid necessity of customs inspection.
If baggage is required en route it should be checked to Victoria
or Vancouver only and presented for Canadian Customs inspection before boarding steamship for Alaska. U.S. Customs inspection will also be necessary at Ketchikan, the first port of
entry into Alaska. Baggage checked from Vancouver or Victoria
to Skagway will be inspected by U.S. Customs officers at Ketchikan, or may be bonded if desired.
(d) Southbound.—Canadian Customs baggage inspection

Vancouver (if passenger is travelling east via Canadian Pacific
Railway) or at Seattle.
(e) Baggage can be checked through from Puget Sound and
British Columbia ports to Whitehorse or Dawson, via the White
Pass and Yukon Route, without undergoing inspection by Customs officers at Skagway, provided passengers hold through
tickets, in which case it will be inspected at destination. Baggage
originating at British Columbia points may be corded and sealed
and sent through Alaska in bond without inspection. Baggage
originating at United States ports destined to points in Alaska
on the lower Yukon River below Dawson can go through to
destination in bond without inspection.
IMMIGRATION REQUIREMENTS
Passengers entering Alaska from Canada are required to
pass the customary United States Immigration Inspection at
Ketchikan, the port of entry. This inspection is not strict so far
as bona fide tourists are concerned. Passengers will be asked by
purser for certain information regarding age, place of residence,
business, etc., for use in making up the manifest required by the
• All steamships have steamer rugs and a limited
number of field glasses, which may be rented from
the News Agent on board at a nominal charge.
• All steamships are provided with comfortable camp
chairs with backs, which are at the disposal of all
passengers free of charge. Regulation ocean liner
deck chairs are not supplied as they are rather cumbersome for this service.
Immigration Department, and will be given a card by him. This
inspection is greatly facilitated for passengers from the United
States, if they carry "identification slips" which will be supplied
by selling agent. The card received from the purser is presented
by passengers to Immigration inspector, who boards steamship
on arrival at Ketchikan, and as soon as particulars shown by
purser on manifest are checked by the inspector, the passenger
is permitted to go ashore. There is a similar inspection by the
Canadian Immigration Department on arrival of steamship southbound at Prince Rupert. These inspections are largely formal so
far as tourists are concerned.
FARES FROM PRINCE RUPERT
Fares quoted from Vancouver to Skagway will also apply from
Prince Rupert to Skagway and return to Prince Rupert or Vancouver, or vice versa.

The Wednesday arrival at Whitehorse leaves the passenger
the option of remaining in Whitehorse that day and going to
Skagway Thursday to connect with the Canadian Pacific Railway steamship southbound; or, leaving Whitehorse Wednesday
morning connecting at Carcross with steamship "Tutshi" for
West Taku Arm, which will bring the passenger into Skagway
Thursday afternoon in time for Canadian Pacific steamship sailing Thursday evening.

steamship "Tutshi" in connection with Whitehorse Tour, Dawson
Tour and Yukon River Circle Tour. Sailings from Carcross are
at noon Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Returning from West Taku Arm the "Tutshi" arrives at Carcross
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 9.00
a.m., in time for train connection either for Skagway or Whitehorse.
Special West Taku Arm Excursion

ROUND-TRIP
INCLUDING  MEALS  &  BERTH
EXCEPT   AT    SKAGWAY
Leaving Vancouver, the "Princess Charlotte" will cruise for 11 days through
the protected waterways of British Columbia's and Alaska's beautiful coastline. Steaming leisurely into mountain-hemmed fjords, and making calls at
fascinating fishing villages far from the regular steamer lanes, the schedule has
been planned to ensure a restful voyage, with stops at interesting points . . .
Powell River and Ocean Falls, where large paper mills are located in the heart of
the Coast mountains . . . Sitka, ancient Capital of Alaska in the days of Russian
occupation . . . the enchanting Behm Canal, a narrow waterway near Ketchikan
. . . the Punch Bowl . . . Eddystone Rock—all these and more, in addition to
points served by Canadian Pacific Alaska liners on their regular schedule.
Ample time will be available at ports for sightseeing, and attractive side-trips
have been arranged. Two days will be allowed at SKAGWAY for side-trips via
White Pass and Yukon Route to Lake Bennett, Whitehorse, or the combined
rail-and-lake trip to the west arm of the great Taku Glacier.
Cruise tickets include round-trip passage, meals and berth on Canadian
Pacific steamships from Seattle or Victoria to Vancouver, connecting there with
the "Princess Charlotte". Cruise passengers may leave Seattle on the 11.00 p.m.
steamship June 21 or August 2 and board the "Princess Charlotte" immediately
on arrival at Vancouver. Passengers from Victoria may leave there on Canadian
Pacific steamship midnight June 21  or August 2 and make similar connection.
Cruise tickets from Seattle will permit a two-day stopover at Vancouver or
Victoria, either north or southbound. Cruise tickets from Victoria will permit a
two-day stopover at Vancouver.

FIRST DAY
JOHNSTONE STRAITS—After passing through
Seymour Narrows, the "Princess Charlotte" will
cruise along Johnstone Straits, where are located a
number of logging camps, and then cross Queen
Charlotte Sound.
SECOND DAY
OCEAN FALLS—Situated at the head of Cousins
Inlet, off Dean Channel, Ocean Falls is the location
of a large paper-making plant. Time will be allowed
for inspection of the town and plant.
THIRD DAY
KETCHIKAN—The port of entry for Southeastern
Alaska, and the home of a large fishing fleet, with
modern stores and curio shops.
BEHM CANAL—Leaving Ketchikan in the morning, instead of pursuing the regular channel to the
north, the ship will proceed south, then north-eastward through Behm Canal, a narrow waterway
separating Revillagigedo Island, on which Ketchikan
is situated, from the main Alaska coast. In the centre
of this narrow channel lies Eddystone Rock, a pinnacle rock about 250 feet high, rising sheer from
the water's edge. The ship will steam slowly into the
"Punch Bowl" in Rudyerd Bay, an impressive sight,
and from there to Walker Cove.
m
FOURTH DAY
TAKU GLACIER—About noon the ship will turn
from the main channel up Taku Inlet, proceeding to
the face of Taku Glacier, a river of ice 90 miles
long, and a mile wide where it enters the sea. A
magnificent spectacle never to be forgotten.
JUNEAU—Capital of Alaska, picturesquely situated
at the foot of Mount Juneau. Arriving in the early
afternoon, members of the cruise will devote the rest
of the day to sight-seeing. A visit can be made to the
Mendenhall Glacier and Auk Lake, a beautiful drive
of about fifteen miles, at a moderate cost.
FIFTH AND SIXTH DAYS
SKAGWAY—The ship will reach Skagway in the
early morning and remain until evening of the following day, affording time for a trip over the White
Pass and Yukon Route, 68 miles by rail to Carcross,
following along the old trail of '98, through the White
Pass, thence by lake steamer on Tagish Lake to
West Taku Arm, returning to Skagway the following
afternoon. Those desiring a shorter trip may proceed to Lake Bennett and return the same day.
(See page 4).
SEVENTH DAY
SITKA—Proceeding south from Skagway through
the Lynn Canal and along Chatham Strait, thence
via Peril Straits and Sergius Narrows, the ship will
arrive at Sitka about ten a.m. The original capital
of Alaska under the Russian regime, Sitka is one of
the most interesting and historical places on the
entire Pacific Coast. Here will be seen St. Michael's
Cathedral, the old Russian church dedicated in
1848, the Sheldon Jackson Indian Industrial School,
U.S. Experimental Farm, and the beautiful National
Park. The harbor is dominated by snow-crested
Mount Edgecomb.
EIGHTH DAY
WRANGELL—Situated near the mouth of the
Stikine River, a river originating in the northern
interior of British Columbia. There are excellent
curio shops and some very fine totem poles at this
point. A stop of several hours will be allowed.
KETCHIKAN—A short stop will be made at this
point the same evening, and during the night the
ship will pass from Alaskan to British Columbian
waters.
NINTH DAY
PRINCE RUPERT—After cruising via the Pearse
Canal and Portland Inlet, the "Princess Charlotte"
will call at Prince Rupert, the largest city on the
northern British Columbia Coast. Points of interest
include a large cold storage plant, where can be
seen immense quantities of frozen halibut caught on
the fishing banks of southeastern Alaska, also a large
Government Dry Dock and Grain Elevator.
TENTH DAY
ALERT BAY—A village on Cormorant Island, and
one of the principal salmon canneries on the Pacific
Coast. Opportunity will be given to visit the cannery.
Alert Bay is an old settlement with a considerable
Indian population, and a modern Indian Industrial
School erected by the Canadian Government. The
Indian cemetery with some quaint totem poles is
worth a visit.
ELEVENTH DAY
POWELL RIVER—The "Princess Charlotte" will
arrive at Powell River in the morning. This port is
the headquarters of the Powell River Company, who
own and operate, at this point, the largest pulp and
paper mill on the Pacific Coast. Passengers will be
given an opportunity to inspect the mill.
VANCOUVER—Ship will arrive at Vancouver in
the afternoon to connect, weather permitting, with
Canadian Pacific trains for Eastern destinations, and
with the Canadian Pacific "Triangle Route" steamship service for Victoria and Seattle.

leisurely into mountain-hemmed fjords, and making calls at fascinating fishing villages
far from the regular steamer lanes, the schedule has been planned to ensure a restful
voyage, with stops at interesting points . . . Powell River and Ocean Falls, where large
paper mills are located in the heart of the Coast mountains . . . Sitka, ancient Capital
of Alaska in the days of Russian occupation . . . the enchanting Behm Canal, a narrow
waterway near Ketchikan . . . the - Punch Bowl . . . Eddystone Rock—all these and

schedule.
Ample time will be available at ports for sightseeing, and attractive side-trips have
been arranged. Two days will be allowed at SKAGWAY for side-trips via White Pass
and Yukon Route to Lake Bennett, Whitehorse, or the combined rail-and-lake trip to the
west arm of the great Taku Glacier.
Cruise tickets include round-trip passage, meals and berth on Canadian Pacific
steamships from Seattle or Victoria to Vancouver, connecting there with the "Princess
Charlotte". Cruise passengers may leave Seattle on the 11.00 p.m. steamship June 20

FIRST DAY
JOHNSTONE STRAITS — After passing through
Seymour Narrows, the "Princess Charlotte" will
cruise along Johnstone Straits, where are located a
number of logging camps, and then cross Queen
Charlotte Sound.
SECOND DAY
OCEAN FALLS—Situated at the head of Cousins
Inlet, off Dean Channel, Ocean Falls is the location
of a large paper-making plant. Time will be allowed
for inspection of the town and plant.
THIRD DAY
KETCHIKAN—The port of entry for Southeastern
Alaska, and the home of a large fishing fleet, with
modern stores and curio shops.
BEHM CANAL—Leaving Ketchikan in the morning, instead of pursuing the regular channel to the
north, the ship will proceed south, then north-eastward through Behm Canal, a narrow waterway
separating Revillagigedo Island, on which Ketchikan
is situated, from the main Alaska coast. In the centre
of this narrow channel lies Eddystone Rock, a pinnacle rock about 250 feet high, rising sheer from
the water's edge. The ship will steam slowly into the
"Punch Bowl" in Rudyerd Bay, an impressive sight,
and from there to Walker Cove.
[2]
FOURTH DAY
TAKU GLACIER—About noon the ship will turn
from the main channel up Taku Inlet, proceeding to
the face of Taku Glacier, a river of ice 90 miles
long, and a mile wide where it enters the sea. A
magnificent spectacle never to be forgotten.
JUNEAU—Capital of Alaska, picturesquely situated
at the foot of Mount Juneau. Arriving in the early
afternoon, members of the cruise will devote the rest
of the day to sight-seeing. A visit may be made to the
Mendenhall Glacier and Auk Lake, a beautiful drive
of about fifteen miles, at a moderate cost.
FIFTH DAY
SITKA—Proceeding from Juneau via Peril Straits and
Sergius Narrows, the ship will arrive at Sitka about
eleven a.m. The original capital of Alaska under
the Russian regime, Sitka is one of the most interesting and historical places on the entire Pacific Coast.
Here will be seen St. Michael's Cathedral, the old
' Russian church dedicated in 1848, the Sheldon
Jackson Indian Industrial School, U.S. Experimental
Farm, and the beautiful National Park. The harbour
is dominated by snow-crested Mount Edgecomb.
SIXTH AND SEVENTH DAYS
SKAGWAY—The ship will reach Skagway in the
early morning and remain until evening of the fol
lowing day, affording time for a trip over the White
Pass and Yukon Route, 68 miles by rail to Carcross,
following along the old trail of '98, through the White
Pass, thence by lake steamer on Tagish Lake to
West Taku Arm, returning to Skagway the following
afternoon. Those desiring a shorter trip may proceed to Lake Bennett and return the same day.
(See page 4).
EIGHTH DAY

Stikine River, a river originating in the northern
interior of British Columbia. There are excellent
curio shops and some very fine totem poles at this

same evening, and during the night the ship will
pass from Alaskan to British Columbian waters.
NINTH DAY

next call at Prince Rupert, the largest city on the
northern British Columbia Coast. Points of interest

seen immense quantities of frozen halibut caught on
the fishing banks of southeastern Alaska, also a large
Government Dry Dock and Grain Elevator.

one of the principal salmon canneries on the Pacific
Coast. Opportunity will be given to visit the cannery.
Alert Bay is an old settlement with a considerable
Indian population, and a modern Indian Industrial

Indian cemetery with some quaint totem poles is
worth a visit. After leaving Alert Bay a delightful
fifty-mile cruise will be made to Knight Inlet, renowned for its scenery.

POWELL RIVER—The "Princess Charlotte" will
arrive at Powell River in the morning. This port is
the headquarters of the Powell River Company, who
own and operate, at this point, the largest pulp and
paper mill on the Pacific Coast. Passengers will be
given an opportunity to inspect the mill.
VANCOUVER—Ship will arrive at Vancouver in
the afternoon to connect, weather permitting, with
Canadian Pacific trains for eastern destinations, and

at the above mentioned ports. Regular storage charges will

originating at British Columbia points may be corded and sealed
and sent through Alaska in bond without inspection. Baggage
originating at United States ports destined to points in Alaska
on the lower Yukon River below Dawson can go through to
destination in bond without inspection.
IMMIGRATION REQUIREMENTS
Passengers entering Alaska from Canada are required to
pass the customary United States Immigration Inspection at
Ketchikan, the port of entry. This inspection is not strict so far
as bona fide tourists are concerned. Passengers will be asked by
purser for certain information regarding age, place of residence,
business, etc., for use in making up the manifest required by the
Immigration Department, and will be given a card by him. This
inspection is greatly facilitated for passengers from the United
States, if they carry "identification slips" which will be supplied
by selling agent.  The card received from the purser is presented
• All steamships have steamer rugs and a limited
number of field glasses, which may be rented from
the News Agent on board at a nominal charge.
9 All steamships are provided with comfortable camp
chairs with backs, which are at the disposal of all
passengers free of charge. Regulation ocean liner
deck chairs are not supplied as they are rather cumbersome for this service.
by passengers to Immigration inspector, who boards steamship
on arrival at Ketchikan, and as soon as particulars shown by
purser on manifest are checked by the inspector, the passenger
is permitted to go ashore. There is a similar inspection by the
Canadian Immigration Department on arrival of steamship southbound at Prince Rupert. These inspections are largely formal so
far as tourists are concerned.

BAGGAGE
(a) 150 lbs. of baggage will be carried free on each adult
ticket and 75 lbs. on each half ticket. Charge for excess baggage,
$3.75 per 100 lbs. in each direction between Seattle, Victoria,
Vancouver and Skagway. Steamer trunks not more than 14
inches in height may be placed in staterooms. Passengers will
find it more convenient to allow trunks to be placed in the baggage
room on board, where they can be made readily accessible
if desired, unless bonded.
(b) Free Storage, Seattle, Victoria or Vancouver. Free
storage of baggage will be permitted for not more than 30 days
at the above mentioned ports. Regular storage charges will
accrue after expiration of this period.
(c) Bonded Baggage.—Baggage may be checked through
from Seattle to Skagway, and if not required en route may be
forwarded under bond to avoid necessity of customs inspection.
If baggage is required en route it should be checked to Victoria
or Vancouver only and presented for Canadian Customs inspection before boarding steamship for Alaska. U.S. Customs inspection will also be necessary at Ketchikan, the first port of
entry into Alaska. Baggage checked from Vancouver or Victoria
to Skagway will be inspected by U.S. Customs officers at Ketchikan, or may be bonded if desired.
(d) Southbound.—Canadian Customs baggage inspection
will be made at Prince Rupert and U.S. Customs inspection at
Vancouver (if passenger is travelling east via Canadian Pacific
Railway to United States destination) or at Seattle.
(e) Baggage may be checked through from Puget Sound and
British Columbia ports to Whitehorse or Dawson, via the White
Pass and Yukon Route, without undergoing inspection by Customs officers at Skagway, provided passengers hold through
tickets, in which case it will be inspected at destination. Baggage
originating at British Columbia points may be corded and sealed
and sent through Alaska in bond without inspection. Baggage
originating at United States ports destined to points in Alaska
on the lower Yukon River below Dawson can go through to
destination in bond without inspection.
IMMIGRATION REQUIREMENTS
Passengers entering Alaska from Canada are required to
pass the customary United States Immigration Inspection at
Ketchikan, the port of entry. This inspection is not strict so far
as bona fide tourists are concerned. Passengers will be asked by
purser for certain information regarding age, place of residence,
business, etc., for use in making up the manifest required by the
Immigration Department, and will be given a card by him. This
inspection is greatly facilitated for passengers from the United
States, if they carry "identification slips" which will be supplied
by selling agent.  The card received from the purser is presented
"PRINCESS" LINERS:
# All steamships have steamer rugs and a limited
number of field glasses, which may be rented from
the News Agent on board at a nominal charge.
9 All steamships are provided with comfortable camp
chairs with backs, which are at the disposal of all
passengers free of charge. Regulation ocean liner
deck chairs are not supplied as they are rather cumbersome for this service.
by passengers to Immigration inspector, who boards steamship
on arrival at Ketchikan, and as soon as particulars shown by
purser on manifest are checked by the inspector, the passenger
is permitted to go ashore. There is a similar inspection by the
Canadian Immigration Department on arrival of steamship southbound at Prince Rupert. These inspections are largely formal so
far as tourists are concerned.

ROUND-TRIP
From Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver

INCLUDING   MEALS   &   BERTH
EXCEPT       AT        SKAGWAY
LEAVING Vancouver, the "Princess Charlotte" will cruise for 11 days through the pro-
j tected waterways of British Columbia's and Alaska's beautiful coastline. Steaming
leisurely into mountain-hemmed fjords, and making calls at fascinating fishing villages
far from the regular steamer lanes, the schedule has been planned to ensure a restful
voyage, with stops at interesting points . . . Powell River and Ocean Falls, where large
paper mills are located in the heart of the Coast mountains . . . Sitka, ancient Capital
of Alaska in the days of Russian occupation ... the enchanting Behm Canal, a narrow
waterway near Ketchikan ... the Punch Bowl . . . Eddystone Rock — all these and
more, in addition to points served by Canadian Pacific Alaska liners on their regular
schedule.
Ample time will be available at ports for sightseeing, and attractive side-trips have
been arranged. Two days will be allowed at SKAGWAY for side-trips via White Pass
and Yukon Route to Lake Bennett, Whitehorse, or the combined rail-and-lake trip to the
south end of West Taku Arm.
Cruise tickets include round-trip passage, meals and berth on Canadian Pacific
steamships from Seattle or Victoria to Vancouver, connecting there with the "Princess
Charlotte". Cruise passengers may leave Seattle on the 11.00 p.m. steamship June 24,
July 15 or August 5 and board the "Princess Charlotte" immediately on arrival at Vancouver. Passengers from Victoria may leave there on Canadian Pacific steamship
midnight June 24, July 15 or August 5 and make similar connection.
Cruise passengers from Seattle have the option of a two-day stopover at Vancouver or Victoria, either north or southbound.  Cruise
tickets from Victoria will permit a two-day stopover at Vancouver.

FIRST DAY
JOHNSTONE STRAITS — After passing through
Seymour Narrows, the "Princess Charlotte" will
cruise along Johnstone Straits, where are located a
number of logging camps, and then cross Queen
Charlotte Sound.
SECOND DAY
OCEAN FALLS—Situated at the head of Cousins
Inlet, off Dean Channel, Ocean Falls is the location
of a large paper-making plant. Time will be allowed
for inspection of the town and plant.
THIRD DAY
KETCHIKAN—The port of entry for Southeastern
Alaska, and the home of a large fishing fleet, with
modern stores and curio shops.
BEHM CANAL—Leaving Ketchikan in the morning, instead of pursuing the regular channel to the
north, the ship will proceed south, then north-eastward through Behm Canal, a narrow waterway
separating Revillagigedo Island, on which Ketchikan
is situated, from the main Alaska coast. In the centre
of this narrow channel lies Eddystone Rock, a pinnacle rock about 250 feet high, rising sheer from
the water's edge. The ship will steam slowly into the
"Punch Bowl" in Rudyerd Bay, an impressive sight,
and from there to Walker Cove.
[2]
FOURTH DAY
TAKU GLACIER — About noon the ship will turn
from the main channel up Taku Inlet, proceeding to
the face of Taku Glacier, a river of ice 90 miles
long, and a mile wide where it enters the sea. A
magnificent spectacle never to be forgotten.
JUNEAU—Capital of Alaska, picturesquely situated
at the foot of Mount Juneau. Arriving in the early
afternoon, members of the cruise will devote the rest
of the day to sight-seeing. A visit may be made to the
Mendenhall Glacier and Auk Lake, a beautiful drive
of about fifteen miles, at a moderate cost.
FIFTH DAY
SITKA—Proceeding from Juneau via Peril Straits and
Sergius Narrows, the ship will arrive at Sitka about
eleven a.m. The original capital of Alaska under
the Russian regime, Sitka is one of the most interesting and historical places on the entire Pacific Coast.
Here will be seen St. Michael's Cathedral, the old
Russian church dedicated in 1848, the Sheldon
Jackson Indian Industrial School, U.S. Experimental
Farm, and the beautiful National Park. The harbour
is  dominated  by   snow-crested  Mount  Edgecomb.
SIXTH AND SEVENTH DAYS
SKAGWAY—The ship will reach Skagway in the
early morning and remain until evening of the fol
lowing day, affording time for a trip over the White
Pass and Yukon Route, 68 miles by rail to Carcross,
following along the old trail of '98, through the White
Pass, thence by lake steamer on Tagish Lake to
West Taku Arm, returning to Skagway the following
afternoon. Those preferring to obtain a more intimate knowledge of the Northern country and see
the Yukon River, Whitehorse Rapids and Miles
Canyon, may make the all-rail trip from Skagway to
Whitehorse, remaining overnight at the comfortable
Whitehorse Inn and return to Skagway the following
afternoon. Those desiring a shorter tour may take
"The Trail of '98 Tour" to Bennett and return the
same day.   (See page 4.)
EIGHTH DAY
WRANGELL—Situated near the mouth of the
Stikine River, a river originating in the northern
interior of British Columbia. There are excellent
curio shops and some very fine totem poles at this
point. A stop of several hours will be allowed.
KETCHIKAN—A stop will be made at this point the
same evening, and during the night the ship will
pass from Alaskan to British Columbian waters.
NINTH DAY
PRINCE RUPERT —The "Princess Charlotte" will
next call at Prince Rupert, the largest city on the
northern British Columbia Coast.   Points of interest
include a large cold storage plant, where can be
seen immense quantities of frozen halibut caught on
the fishing banks of southeastern Alaska, also a large
Government Dry Dock and Grain Elevator.
TENTH DAY
ALERT BAY—A village on Cormorant Island, and
one of the principal salmon canneries on the Pacific
Coast. Opportunity will be given to visit the cannery.
Alert Bay is an old settlement with a considerable
Indian population, and a modern Indian Industrial
School erected by the Canadian Government. The
Indian cemetery with some quaint totem poles is
worth a visit. After leaving Alert Bay a delightful
fifty-mile cruise will be made to Knight Inlet, renowned for its scenery.
ELEVENTH DAY
POWELL RIVER—The "Princess Charlotte" will
arrive at Powell River in the morning. This port is
the headquarters of the Powell River Company, who
own and operate, at this point, the largest pulp and
paper mill on the Pacific Coast. Passengers will be
given an opportunity to inspect the mill.
VANCOUVER—Ship will arrive at Vancouver in
the afternoon to connect, weather permitting, with
Canadian Pacific trains for eastern destinations, and
with the Canadian Pacific "Triangle Route" steamship service for Victoria and Seattle.
