The tour is approximatively 1 1/2 hours long. It is narriated with lots of great historical information. The 2018 price is only $15.00. The crew is friendly and bilingual. They also serve refreshments when they are on the river.

Super little river trip from Newcastle to Chatham with witty, bilingual commentary by the captain. Take sunscreen or a parasol and sit on the upper deck. Great for kids; he may let them take the wheel!

On board the Max Atkin for 1-2 hours is a great way to see the River, town & hear some of the history of the area.. Depending on the tide..the tour can take you either way up or down the River.. A very relaxing journey......More

What a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny afternoon. Get to sit back and learn about a bit about local history.

I'm from miramichi and atleast once a year my husband and I go. Every year I learn something new about my city and get to spend a few hours on a boat seeing the sights, what's not to love?
