Thank you for signing for the Industry Tour by Surrey Fraser Docks, as part of RiverFest 2017. The Fraser River Discovery Centre can’t wait to see you on Saturday for this fun adventure!

Here’s some key information for your tour:


Each of the sailings, at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. You should be there 15 minutes prior for boarding for your tour. The tour will last about 1 hr 45 minutes in total. You must return on the same boat that you arrived on.


All tours will depart from the New Westminster Quay’s Paddlewheeler Riverboat Tours berth, which is located to the west of the Fraser River Discovery Centre (approximately 100 metres along the boardwalk).


A reminder that, for security reasons, only those people whose names are pre-registered will be allowed to board the boat for the tour. You will also need government approved picture identification (for everyone over the age of 18).

Refreshments and Facilities

There will be light refreshments available for purchase on the Paddlewheeler and at Fraser Surrey Docks. Washroom facilities will also be available both on the boat and the tour site. If needed, St. John’s Ambulance will also be at the Quay as part of RiverFest.

Transportation and Parking

New Westminster Quay can be reached easily by public transportation (2 skytrain stations). It is also accessible off the major highway routes through New Westminster.

Parking will be available in the lot to the east of the Fraser River Discovery Centre (by donation, with all funds going towards the operation of the Fraser River Discovery Centre). Overflow parking will also be available in the City of New Westminster’s parkade, which is further to the east.
