This makes a great relaxing afternoon trip. The Tour lasts a good 90 minutes and "Captain Dan" is very knowledgeable about the local history and surroundings. It's good for any age group & the younger passengers are usually asked to help "drive" the boat. Weather, of course, makes a real difference.

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!

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.

A very nice and informative cruise on the Miramichi river on board the tour boat. The trip takes about two hours The boat is fully licensed and has a lower and upper deck {for those who like the sun} The river stories are in both English and French. a very nice family trip at a reasonable price.

Have a drink and listen, the captain has great story to tell you about Miramichi. The tour takes about 2 hours on this old boat. The Miramichi river is nice and there are very nice houses.

Hosted by an informed, enthusiastic, and personable captain and crew, this 1 1/2 hour cruise provides a neat context to the river and its people. This compression of past events makes the cruise a highlight of any visit to Newcastle, Chatham as they were called until recent times. Highly recommended for any age group.
