Every year our comfortable and speedy catamaran Beta Star makes the journey around from New Westminster to Vancouver to participate in the spectacular Honda Celebration of Lights. This cruise tends to sell out every year, especially as we limit the number of tickets sold to ensure everybody gets a first-class view. Start your voyage from our dock at New Westminster Quay for a sunset journey down the North Arm of the Fraser River past South Vancouver, Richmond and Marpole.
Enjoy a delicious west coast dinner as part of your cruise. The catamaran Beta Star then takes you out into the Straight of Georgia as the sun sets on the Pacific, then around Point Grey and the University Endowment Lands and into English Bay. We then get into position to watch the Honda Celebration of Lights fireworks.
With the Coast Range Mountains and the downtown peninsula of Vancouver in the background you’ll have the best seats in the house to watch this internationally-acclaimed fireworks festival. Afterwards, we take you into False Creek, docking near Science World, where an International Stage Lines luxury coach awaits to whisk you back to New Westminster in comfort and ease.
We are a family-owned company operating our flagship paddlewheeler, the 100-passenger M.V. Native. We feature cruises on the Fraser River, up river to Fort Langley or down to the historic fishing village of Steveston.
We also can take you out into the breathtaking back-country wilderness of Pitt Lake, or out for a narrated lunch cruise, Sunset Dinner cruises or fun Friday-night "pub" dance parties on the Fraser River.
