Unique opportunity to ply the Peace River!

We hope you were able to come out last year and see the arrival of GeoTourism Canada's York Boat! This year the historic York Boat will again be travelling up the Peace River in June. GeoTourism is looking for some adventurous individuals to join their crew.

From GeoTourism:
"The tour is schedule for June 1-14, 2012. The adventures starts at historic Dunvegan and descends the river to Fort Vermilion, some 540 km (338 miles). Crew members may take the option to the top half (Dunvegan to Notikewin) or the bottom half (Notikewin to Fort Vermilion), although crew members wishing to do the entire trip will be given priority.

Overnight camping at various river landings will be done with a historical view but also lend itself to some modern conveniences. Because this is a promotional tour crew members should be aware that the tour will possibly coincide with various public events and meetings with school groups.

Individuals should possess good teamwork skills and good health plus be able to commit to a 7-14 day tour to promote the history of the Peace."

If you have any questions or would like to register for the crew, please contact Jason Penner at or 780-624-1347.
