Full description

Travel through the Vancouver Harbour and see the sights from a different perspective. Ride a zodiac boat from Granville Island, passed Stanley Park, and go underneath the Lion's Gate Bridge. Boat up to the glacial fjord of Indian Arm, and admire the many natural waterfalls, cliffs, and tree-lined shorelines.

Meet your guide at Granville Island, a bridge-attached island, known for its bustling local market, artisans, and street performers. There, board a Zodiac boat and feel totally safe knowing that it's practically unsinkable.

As the tour begins, admire Granville Island as you drift away, and look to the other side to capture shoreside shots of English Bay with its long beaches, palm trees, and artsy apartment buildings. Pass Stanley Park, and take in the beauty of the conservation of old cedars, pines, and oak trees, while learning about the seawall and the man who started it all.

Pass underneath the Lion's Gate Bridge and look to the left to take in views of the North Shore mountains. As you pass Seaspan, discover all the ways that Vancouver serves as a major international shipping port. Head toward Siwash Rock, and admire the waterfalls and granite cliffs as you catch sight of Deep Cove.

Feel the air on your face and taste the ocean air as you boat up the glacial fjord of Indian Arm, and get up close and personal with Granite Falls. Take it all in and understand the peace that comes with this relatively untouched part of British Columbia.

Start the adventure back, passing by Silver Falls, and get dropped back off at Granville Island.

Amy was a great guide! We thoroughly enjoyed the views and history - would definitely recommend this tour! They provide options to wear a full suit or a life vest - bring a waterproof coat if you go this route as it does get really windy/slightly chilly.
