Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry, due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon: for $39, you get two tickets to Friday Fun Night from Paddlewheeler Riverboat Cruises (a $79.90 value) at the Westminster Waterfront in New Westminster.
The 100-passenger M.V. Native cruises the historic Fraser River as guests mingle, dance, and sightsee during their three hours aboard ship. After a hectic workweek full of haughty bosses and snarky telegrams, cut proverbial rugs to the festive beats of an onboard DJ, or cool off on the upper deck for spectacular views of the sunset behind the coastal mountains. Though not included in the value of the Groupon, an oaken bar pours out libations and a snack selection to fuel skeletal muscles into dance floor feats, such as licking an elbow.
Paddlewheeler Riverboat Tours
Inside Paddlewheeler Riverboat Cruises' signature vessel, the MV Native, captains transport passengers 100 years back in time when scores of paddle wheelers churned through the rivers of British Columbia. Before the authentic vessel casts off into the Fraser River, the crew tailors each voyage to a different experience that treat passengers to off land DJ dance parties, views of local wildlife, and journeys to historic locales such as Fort Langley. Their boat also plays host to special occasions including weddings and private parties. Towering mountain ranges act as a backdrop for each tour, and the ship's white and gray exterior greets eyes with a classic design that echoes the Canadian flag flown on it's mast.
