This was a fantastic way to see the city. The staff were really helpful & even helped us FaceTime our friends so we could share the view with them too! Would recommend!

Good View of Vancouver from here. It was pleasant to view descriptions on what where are. The lake side view is good. Also the foodcourt is good :-)

The lookout is on top of the building, and you'd think it would need to be higher for a better view. It is a great lookout and the staff were great with our young child. We went up twice in the same day, in daylight and also sunset. I would go just before sunset as that was the best time.

This observation deck is on a tall building near Coal Harbor. The price is fairly steep, but if you go on a clear day, the view is worth it. One can see all of downtown Vancouver as well as much of the surrounding area. There are signs around the circular platform that help you figure out what you are seeing,... More

A good place to start to get orientated, it has both the viewing deck & a revolving restaurant. We paid the entry fee but could have avoided it if visiting the restaurant, which we did for dinner one night.

A visit to the Vancouver Lookout on a sunny day is a wonderful way to view metro Vancouver and Mount Baker in Washington State. Look for the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, Coal Harbor, Stanley Park, West Point Grey, Burnaby Mountain (site of Simon Fraser University) the British Properties, Grouse Mountain, Cypress Bowl, Seymour Mountain, cruise ships, Point Atkinson and so...

We arrived in Vancouver during a "Pineapple Express" rain storm and could not visit this attraction for several days into our trip due to low visibility. We went on a Sunday and there were no lines with easy access. While the facility is old, it does provide a great 360 degree view of the area. It takes some time to... More

It's not the tallest building in the world but you can still enjoy great views of Vancouver, it's surroundings and mountains. To get most of it you need to visit it twice. In the morning windows ate still clean so you can get some decent pictures. Make sure you use polarized filter to get the best shots. In the evening... More
