Begin at Granville Island on the Vancouver waterfront, where you’ll be fitted with a light life jacket if it’s a hot day, or a survival suit that slips right over your dinner attire and will keep you warm on the water crossing to Bowen Island. Place your order before departing, so dinner will be ready upon arrival at the restaurant. Board a 30-foot (9-meter), rigid hull zodiac boat that seats up to 12 people, and learn about Granville Island’s history as you navigate out of False Creek. Hear stories about the Burrard Street Bridge, Bard on the Beach, and the Eugenia Building as you follow the shoreline, then pick up speed when you reach open water. Hit 31mph (50kph) while passing Stanley Park, then pause at Siwash Rock to snap photos of the Vancouver landmark. Follow the shoreline towards Point Atkinson, then disembark at Bowen Island—you’ll have one hour to dine and stroll around Bowen Island’s shops. Return to the boat for a second sightseeing cruise: see Vancouver’s seal colony from the water, then visit the Spanish Banks to see the shipping freighters up close (time permitting). Finally, you’ll find your spot among an audience of boats just in time for a jaw-dropping 25-minute firework display over English Bay, before the tour concludes back at Granville Island. Small Groups & Fast Boats In contrast to crowded cruises and other boat tours in Vancouver, our Zodiacs are fast, nimble and limited to 12 guests. Bottom line? A more intimate experience with everything from waterfalls to wildlife. See What Most Are Missing While the majority of visitors stay on the pavement and pathways, you’ll get to experience the picturesque waterfalls, glacial fjords and stunning vistas completely inaccessible by car. Memorable Wildlife Encounters Our small, comfortable Zodiacs give you the chance to get up close and personal with starfish, seals, sea lions, jellyfish, bald eagles, and even occasionally our local black bears and dolphins. Award-Winning Guides Beyond the jaw-dropping scenery, your experienced and friendly captain will share stories, local history, geological features, and answer any questions you have throughout the tour.
