Historic Boat Tours

The Museum at Campbell River will once again offer its summer historic boat tours in partnership with Discovery Marine Safaris.  Each trip explores the history of the region from the comfort of a 30-passenger boat that includes both indoor and outdoor seating areas, and an on board washroom.  As well as an experienced Captain, there is an on board naturalist who is constantly on the lookout for wildlife to point out, and a Museum Guide to share historic points of interest.
