SERENITY is the one word that describes this tour to the wilderness of Pitt Lake. After passing through the bustling activity on the Fraser River, passengers will emerge into the quiet tranquility and panoramic beauty of a majestic fjord. This beautiful, fresh water tidal lake is one of the largest of its kind. Grassy, reverse deltas appear daily in the center of the lake as the tide recedes. We’ll travel along the cliff side and observe the ancient First Nations pictographs. This area is still a wilderness and home to bears, deer and cougars. Our entertaining narrator will tell you about the history, legends and ecology of this amazing area.
Our comfortable 40-passenger catamaran is specially equipped to cruise the shallow waters of Pitt Lake, one of the largest and most beautiful freshwater lakes in B.C. & Canada. We also configure the Beta Star to host special bicycle tours of the Pitt River and Pitt lake Dykes in summer. Please see our Summer Tour Packages. The M.V. Beta Star is a very safe boat, fully certified by the Canadian Coast Guard, and division of Transport Canada.
