There is no better way to see our Port than from the water. Take a tour with Nomada Charters for just that. We have the River Rider which is available for one hour sightseeing tours on a pontoon boat. You will take a leisurely trip up Lynn Valley River and into the Black Creek Nature Reserve. Along the way you will see prestigious homes, exquisite yachts and wildlife. While enjoying the sights you will be provided with colourful commentary, peppered with interesting and comical historical lore and a little island music to go with the experience. We also provide private charters and can accommodate bus tours.

We had the heads up to buy our ticket-tokens early ... the boat fills up fast on Holiday Mondays. Glad we did as the boat was sold-out 15 minutes before departure. (Not a real problem though - the tours depart hourly) The pre-recorded audio guide...More

4 of us took this boat ride. We enjoyed looking at the old boats and beautiful homes up on the hillsides. It was a lovely way to spend a little time on a sunny day.

The River Rider is not what you would call wheel chair accessible but we have had many folks on board with mobility issues. Walkers can be taken onboard.
