Steveston Heritage Experience
Go back in time on an interactive walking tour, stopping at four celebrated historic attractions Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, the Steveston Interurban Tram, Steveston Museum, and the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site. You’ll hear eye-opening tales of yesteryear village life, as told by a chatty fisherman who seems to have just stepped from the streets of 1914. Carefully chosen food and beverage tastings will be served at each location. Bus transportation is provided between Britannia Shipyards and Steveston Village and then back to Britannia Shipyards.19+ Only.
