No better view of the Burrard Inlet

I used to work at the Port offices at the Northern-most point of the building. It's hard to think of a better place to view the hustle and bustle of the port's ships and seaplanes... read more

This past weekend I had the privilege of attending two trade shows at both Canada Place Convention Centres. The location is superior. On the water. Views of the fresh snow capped mountains. Sea planes and helicopters departing and arriving. The facilities are terrific. Great helpful staff at every opportunity to guide you in the area and surrounding city information. It's... More

Great place, amazing to be in. Like the architecture, and general "environment" of the building. A very iconic place of Vancouver, recommend seeing it.

I used to work at the Port offices at the Northern-most point of the building. It's hard to think of a better place to view the hustle and bustle of the port's ships and seaplanes against the beautiful backdrop of the North Shore mountains and Lion's Gate Bridge. Wait till 9 o'clock PM for a surprise from Stanley Park's shores...

Walk around to the side of the building for nice views of the bay and sea planes landing and taking off. Though the views from the Jack Poole Plaza next door are even better.

Was here in 1986 and it hasn't changed. Still architecturally ahead of its time. I love it when the cruisers are there,it takes s good 15-20 minutes to walk the length!!

There are obviously things to do around here like the Fly Over Canada ride, but it is also nice to just hang around here to people watch, take in the North Vancouver scenery, photograph the Vancouver skyline, eat a meal around the area, shop, lots to do. I recommend to come during dusk, when the light starts to come on,... More

If you like to sit and look at mountains (North Vancouver), watch seaplanes take off and cruise liners dock, then you'll love this place. Apart from that there are a few good restaurants there and you can buy tickets to Victoria there too, but not much of a vibe, just clinically clean glass buildings and yuppies enjoying wine.

Even on a rainy day in Vancouver's winter, this place is a winner. There's the structure itself and the views of seaplanes taking off and landing. Inside, everyone's favorite attraction is the Flyover Canada movie which is so realistic that you are required to wear seat belts. It really feels as if you're in a helicopter dipping and flying over... More

Although part of the city it has a tranquil ambience as you look over the bay to Stanley Park & N Vancouver. There is a lot of aerial activity with float planes & helicopters to watch. We noticed guys in the top of the Vancouver Tower with high powered telescopes & 2 way radios, guess they are the ATC people... More
