The next evening river cruise is Aug.11 and we just got 4 tickets returned. If that does not work we will run another one on Aug. 15th. The warm summer nights are here and an evening river cruise is a perfect way to end the work week. These cruises take advantage of evening high tides. We need at least 12.5 feet of tide to safely get up the river. This cruise will start from Comox head up the Courtenay River to the 17th Street Bridge. Then we will meander down the river, out to the Wrecks of Royston and around the estuary. Our first Evening River Cruise of the season will be June 9th.
The Courtenay River was once the main road to town. Before the road to Naniamo was built, everything came and went by boat. I remember in the 60’s when there were numerous barges loading and unloading there product a sites along the river. Now the river is mostly used for recreation. That is because the industries have mostly left and the river is returning to its natural state.
