Our 100-passenger Paddlewheeler is an authentic replica of the paddlewheelers, or sternwheelers that plied the Fraser River in British Columbia from the late 1850s until the 1920s. Carrying everyone from pioneers, fur traders, gold rush miners, and family passengers from the communities along the Fraser River, these working boats were vital connections between B.C. communities in the early days of this province. The M.V. Native is very safe boat, fully certified by Transport Canada.
