Scenic Cruises BC River Cruises
BC from a river point of view
The lush Coast Mountain Range provides a breathtaking backdrop of BC from a “River point of view.” The 100 passenger paddlewheeler Native and the 40 passenger catamaran Beta Star have a busy spring-through-fall schedule, some cruises even run all year round! Some of our destinations include trips from New Westminster to Ladner, Fort Langley and the back-county wilderness of Pitt Lake.
Lunch, Dinner and Pub Night River Cruises
We also offer shorter lunch cruises, fun-filled sunset dinner cruises and our “Pub-Night” cruises on Fridays and Saturdays year-round starting in February. Featuring great food, with many locally-sourced and organic ingredients from the galley, dancing to your favourite tunes brought to you by our DJ and drink specials invented by our awesome bartender, Willie, gather up your friends (must be 19+ for the Pub-Night cruises) and join us for an unforgettable night on the river.
Charter your Private Party or Wedding
If you have a group of people who want to get out on the Fraser River for a great cruise experience, even in our off-season, the 100-passenger paddlewheeler M.V. Native is available for private charter cruises, weddings, receptions, special anniversary parties, and private corporate events.
