Where are we going today?

Keep the history flowing through your Yukon adventure with Klondike Spirit Paddlewheeler Cruise - the province's ONLY paddlewheeler!

Climb aboard and enjoy a historic and nostalgic journey along the Yukon River.  You will be amazed how much incredibly landscape you will see once you hit the water and look at the scenery from a new perspective.

You might even be lucky to spot some wildlife lurking on the banks! Moose, bears, and if you're lucky that iconic bald eagle! 

Along the way, you will learn all about the history of Dawson City and the historical site of Moosehide (don't you just love the names!) as well as the infamous Klondike gold rush.

For 90 minutes you can enjoy the day cruise. Narrated, you will experience all the history of the area, and even see the popular "Cave men Bill" - who is he? Better take the cruise to find out!

There is more than one cruise a day, leaving from 8am which lets you book the best time for you! 

If you want something truly special, then head on out for their dinner cruises! The best part of this, is you can enjoy the cruise with or without the meal, so if you were on a budget but wanted to experience the Yukon as the sun sets, you can! 

These cruises are 2 hours long and if you do choose to eat, you will be tucking into flavors like salmon, ribs and cheesecake!

Klondike Spirit Paddlewheeler Cruises are a fabulously historic and fun way to see more of the surrounding area of Dawson City. Kids will also get a kick out of watching the wheel work - different to most boats they have been on we bet!

Get that captains hat on, because you're ready to set sail!
