Thanks so much for making my daughter ‘Captain’ on our cruise this year for our first year living in Miramichi . ♥️ Until next year… ☺️

My mother, who left the Miramichi 45 years ago, had an absolutely wonderful time on the river cruise. Thanks and we'll be back next year!

Hopefully Wewill be able to get back home next summer and for sure we will visit Max Aitken for a little tour.

I enjoyed a few trips on the Max Aitken this year. Always enjoyable. See you next year.

I had really hoped to take the tour this past summer. Definitely next summer!

We enjoyed our trip on Miramichi river this summer...look in forward to next summer

Glad to know that you have another year in the books, Captain!

Wow!! Did not realize all the work that is involved in getting it out of the water. Missed the trip this past summer, but hopefully won't next summer.

We missed you this year. Next summer.

Very nice Azade...Now get some rest, it could be a long winter..

Yup…high hopes!

We had an enthusiastic group  of adults and children on board the Max Aitken today - organized by the Francophone Reception and Support Center for immigrants (CAFi) from southeastern New Brunswick.  We hope they enjoyed their tour - delivered entirely in French - as they begin a new life in Canada.  One of the youngsters even drove the boat and received his Mad Max Captains Licence.Image attachment
