Hop on to an authentic sternwheeler riverboat to relive the excitement of the 19th century, when fortune hunters, fur traders, settlers, royalty and ne'er-do-wells travelled the Fraser River on just such a craft. Paddlewheeler River Adventures does it all for you on a cruise or charter on the mighty Fraser River and surrounding coastal waters.
Departing from the New Westminster waterfront, you will be entertained and informed. The narration takes you back to the days of Hudson's Bay Company outposts when Indians fished, hunted and trapped from villages on the banks, and to the time when the river was a major highway for the Gold Rush.
An eco-tour provides you with spectacular scenery, fascinating wildlife, continental breakfast, buffet lunch and fun for the whole family. You can also hear some hot licks from world-class musicians on a Riverboat Jazz Cruise. A two-hour lunch cruise, meanwhile, is the ideal break in the middle of a hectic day.
