Beautiful old paddlewheel. Restoration was very well done, but a lot of the boat was off limits which made it a little of a let down. All in all it is ok, because it was free.

This is one of two remaining gold rush era river boats that ferried gold seekers from Whitehorse to Dawson. It has been restored to original condition over many years and along with location it is a wonderful couple of hours for any visitor to Whitehorse.

What is the cost for a large group tour? Do I purchase group tickets prior to visit or when we arrive? Snaks or food available on site.
