We spent a lovely afternoon/evening aboard the paddlewheeler. A private cruise to celebrate an anniversary. The staff was great. Everything was done efficiently. The meal provided was excellent. We would do this again and keep it in mind for visitors.

Sorry but this stretch of the Fraser river does not lend itself to an interesting tour at all. Sawmills, couple of bridges and some messy (to be expected) industrial sites. Very boring cruise overall. Good concept, wrong area. Boat was okay, felt sorry for the...More

You are absolutely right about the karaoke, the DJ was playing to the group on the lower deck, that is not acceptable, and they have been told not to do that again.

For our purposes, the food was good. We had appies - sliders (good), nacho's (good). There was a salmon dinner that I saw others have, but didn't partake. It was not a buffet, but you could order individual apps.
