Enjoy a 3-hour evening cruise along the beautiful Fraser River, including a delicious buffer dinner with meat and vegetarian options, aboard the M.V. Native, an authentic replica of a paddlewheeler, or sternwheeler that plied the Fraser River in British Columbia from 1863 until 1921.

“Had the most fabulous experience on this riverboat cruise. The staff was professional and accommodating. The food and drinks were excellent. The commentary was informative and full of great unknown history and facts. Highly recommend. I will definitely do this again!” – Mary Anne Ebeling, on Facebook

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 and peoples along the Fraser River.

The M.V. Native was built in 1988, and is very safe boat, fully certified annually by the Canadian Coast Guard, a division of Transport Canada.
