The 100 passenger paddlewheeler MV Native is the perfect venue for an unforgettable private charter. Whether the occasion is an anniversary, seminar or corporate event, cast and crew, wrap party, celebration of life, family reunion, staff Christmas party, graduation party, academic conference, fundraiser or a civic event, we’ve hosted them all with great success.

There is a three hour minimum for charters and the boat is fully staffed, but other than that, you set the agenda! You can select the itinerary, length of the cruise, direction, menus, should you wish to provide food for your guests, and all the other details. With a three hour minimum cruise we can take you up-river as far as the top end of Douglas Island or down the Main Channel of the Fraser as far as Tilbury Island. If you want to charter the boat for a longer voyage- that’s fine too! We can provide decoration if you wish, a DJ if you would like music or dancing, or narration if you would like to have some commentary on the sights we will be seeing on the river. You can also select the type of bar service available for your event ranging from a host bar to drink tickets for beer and wine, cash bar, bowls of punch (non alcoholic or regular punch) or juice, pop, coffee and tea.

We can even make arrangements to pick up or drop off guests at certain locations on the river where docks are available (please be advised that we would have to charge “dead time” for this service to cover getting the boat to or from locations without passengers aboard). With two decks, space for dancing or presentations, great views, experienced and helpful staff, we can make your event exactly what you want it to be!

Our location on the Fraser River is handy to the New Westminster Skytrain Station and immediately next to the spectacular Inn at the Quay Hotel and near to other high-quality hotels such as The Met, for the convenience of your out-of town guests.
