fun tour, interesting movie, included easy to get to and find, \the history of this area is very eye opening. There was no charge and we spent a good 2 hours there. Right in town.

A short walk from town, this stern wheeler was interesting and historic. Filled with lots to see, it was well worth the visit. It sits in a park along the river and is a nice adventure away from the typical touristy places.

One of the better paddlewheel boats in the area. The parks Canada representative was very informative and willing to share.

If you love paddle wheelers or have never been on one, I recommend you do the tour if you have the time. Otherwise you can take a nice free walk along the river and just look at it and pick up a history book.

Opens only in summer (mid May to mid Sept), in late Sept we could just view the nice-looking big vessel (64 m long x 12.5 m wide) from the outside and read the displays. The location on the river bank was neat with a few...More

I really enjoy exploring the ship. There are two levels of it and it has all the setup like it was when it was being used.
