    What to Expect
    Vancouver is a seaside city that should be explored by water. Hop aboard a zodiac boat from Granville Island on this afternoon tour and come away with frame-worthy pictures of iconic landmarks.

     

    Get fitted into a survival suit during a safety briefing before stepping into the boat. Your knowledgeable guide shares historical accounts of Granville Island, the Eugenia Building, Bard on the Beach and the Burrard Street Bridge.

     

    Cross False Creek and follow the shore along Stanley Park, enjoying boat speeds of up to approx. 25 knots (29 mph/46 kph). Stop near the Siwash Rock, an outcrop located near Third Beach and the Lion’s Gate Bridge, and learn about the history of the natural rock formation.

     

    Explore Vancouver Harbour and gain insight into Canada Place, Seaspan, Lion’s Gate Bridge and more. Sail past the Ironworkers Bridge towards Deep Cove.

    Enter the glacial fjord of Indian Arm, lined with granite cliff faces — this area is boat-access only and is surrounded by untouched natural British Columbia forests.  

    Admire the cascades of Granite Falls from the zodiac (no deboarding), followed by a brief stop at the north end of Indian Arm and the Wigwam Inn.

     

    Turn around and enjoy close-up views of Silver Falls. Return voyage on the same route, and take in views of Stanley Park, English Bay Beach, the Sulphur Pile, Coal Harbour, the Twin Islands, Racoon Island, Buntzen Powerhouse and more.

    We saw some beautiful places and wildlife. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, and we learned some things. That said, his delivery felt canned. Also, there was a lot of boat 'acrobatics' that didn't really add anything. The 'donuts' and unnecessary turbulence (creating waves to
