Welcome aboard the famous “River Queen” for a leisurely 45-minute, narrated historical tour of Steveston and the Cannery Channel.
Converted from a BC Ferries Lifeboat, the River Queen can fit up to 12 passengers and offers a unique view of Steveston from the water that you simply would not get if you were walking through the village.
Learn about the commercial fishing fleet in Steveston as you glide past Shady Island, the old fishing canneries and Britannia Heritage Shipyards. Embark on this historical voyage and discover local wildlife such as harbor seals, bald eagles, swans, cormorants and more.
Group rates and flexible departure time are available. We welcome school groups and seniors groups. Please call or email ahead of time to reserve a time slot for your group booking.
Tickets can be purchased on the River Queen or at the Vancouver Whale Watch Kiosk located by the bog Fisherman’s Wharf sign (cash only). Please call 604-274-9565 for more details. The vessel has a maximum seating of 12 passengers and may be closed due to weather. Some accessibility limitations exist due to the nature of the vessel.
