About Us

BC from a Fraser River point of view

Vancouver Paddlewheeler Riverboat Tours

In the spring of 1989, Doug and Helga Leaney started a long tradition of Fraser River cruises with their first commercial boat, the Inlet Cruiser. Almost 30 years later - we are still a family-owned company operating our flagship paddlewheeler, the 100-passenger M.V. Native.

We cruise the mighty Fraser from our dock in New Westminster and offer a wide variety of scheduled cruises, including:

  • Narrated cruises up river to Historic Fort Langley
  • Narrated harbour and lunch cruises
  • Breathtaking back-country wilderness of Pitt Lake
  • Sunset Dinner cruises
  • Friday and Saturday night "pub" dance parties on the Fraser River
  • Valentines Day, Mother's and Father's Days
  • Canada Day Fireworks, Cinco de Mayo, Victoria Day
  • Oktoberfest and Halloween Cruises
  • Christmas, Holiday and Boxing Week Cruises
  • New Years Eve Cruise
  • Parties, Weddings and Fundraisers
