English Bay Jet Ski Tour from Vancouver

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    When you arrive at the watersports center on Granville Island, your guide will orient you with a 30-minute safety briefing before you are assigned to your single- or double-rider Sea-Doo watercraft. Your 2.5-hour Jet Ski tour takes place in the morning, when the winds are calm and before the English Bay fills up with recreational boats. Follow your guide’s lead out of the bay, and marvel at how your Jet Ski drives like a sports car on the smooth waters.

    Roar your way northwest, pass Horseshoe Bay, and check out Bowen Island, a tranquil, forested island, where locals enjoy its sheltered bays and pristine swimming beaches.

    In Howe Sound, pass the smaller island of Bowyer Island and reach the outcrop of Pam Rocks, where you’ll find a colony of approx. 150 harbor seals. Watch them frolic in the water and scamper onto rocks. Keep your eyes peeled for bald eagles overhead, as the Christie Islet Migratory Bird Sanctuary is located a short distance from here.

    Continue to Anvil Island, the third-largest island in Howe Sound, also called Hat Island, and see if you can see the White Spot, a marker located on a high bluff popular with hikers.

    Time permitting, your guide leads you to more sites and explains what you see along the way. Then cruise back to Granville Island, where your tour ends.

    Celebrated our anniversary with the Ocean is Yours morning tour with Kevin! What an amazing activity! We explored Howe Sound on a beautiful morning with very few other vessels around. The seadoos were pretty easy to get the hang of and Kevin was an awesome teacher and guide.
