Ghost towns can exist anywhere in this world and Canada is home to a number of them. These towns can be found from coast to coast. One of them is in northern British Columbia, where lush greenery and vegetation are consuming the ruins that remain standing.
Reaching Coastal Ghost Town by Boat
Variations in prices are relative. The boat has a capacity of six people tops and starts at around $300 per hour for the entire boat. So it is all about how many people you bring along with you. $600 are charged for a boatload of 6 people for about 3 to 4 hours of the ride while $800 are charged for a full 6 to 8 hours ride including the tour guide and the lunch.
Don’t think this of a major rip off, as all equipment such as the safety gear is included in the charges. Personal flotation devices, snacks, and drinks, guide information about the place, local history is also added inclusively.
The jet boats are 20-ft long and are powered by V-8 engines. Covers are provided as well to keep the rain off of your heads due to any sudden downpours. Heaters are also provided for the chilly days for the extra bit of warmth.
