So far there has been no change in the vessel’s position since 11PM last night…that is good news.

Nope that’s wrong, Prince Rupert Port Authority has tweeted that it’s destined for Fairview, which makes sense as it’s a container ship.

Good to know. Usually they are tied up at Northland terminal.

is it still possible to drive up to the viewing area or it is off limits these days? Would really like a close up look

The viewing area at Fairview Container Terminal is indeed open to the public. From Prince Rupert, drive along Highway 16 southbound toward the ferry terminals, then turn left onto Scott Rd. Access to the viewing area will be on your left just before you reach the terminal entrance.
