A relaxing way to spend a night out. All seating is pre-planned, and everyone had a view of he river. Boat was very clean and tables were well laid out. We were able to go to top deck and take pictures. Dinner was announced and there was plenty to eat for everyone. They catered for all tastes, and the buffet... More

We took the sunset dinner cruise to celebrate my parents anniversary and had a great experience. The Harbour Princess is a very nice boat with comfortable seating and large viewing windows. The live music was relaxing. Going to the buffet was by table and very orderly. The food was very tasty and the wait staff was friendly. One of the... More

Excellent. We were on the Harbour Princess and had a fantastic cruise around Stanley Park to Granville Island and back. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious and plentiful; all enjoyed with pleasant live music. If you can avoid a table by the stairs I'd recommend it. They have bright LEDs to keep them lit as the... More

This tour provided information about the harbour and the ships that dock within the harbour. The tour boat is a paddlewheel and so moves at a leisurely pace. We even got to see a number of harbour seals.

The one hour cruise is solely a cargo port cruise so be prepared. Boring! So don't waste your time. I heard the 4 hour cruise is better but cannot verify that.

We decided to do the 4 hour lunch cruise up Indian Arm. It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon on the water and to see the nature (only a few kilometers away from downtown), mountain, water falls, liver waterfront properties. The much buffet was great. The salmon was delicious! I think this the the perfect way to enjoy... More

Thinking of a place to hung out with your friends visiting from the USA is sometimes hard to find. I ask my friends what they want to do during their stay here in Vancouver and they gave me the decision making....I decided on a boat cruise where we can just relax and enjoy the views. So I reserved an Indian... More

We took the Indian Arm Cruise hoping to see a lot of wildlife, which seemed mostly absent the day we went. The cruise was 4 hours long, and you had great views of the city from the water. The tour takes you past the industrial working parts of the harbor where you can see the large tanker and container ships... More

Did the Indian Arm luncheon cruise. Weather was beautiful, loved cruising past Canada Place and seeing cruise ships. The first portion is very industrial as you go past the different loading docks like Cargill, Viterra and Rogers sugar. But found this very interesting as we are farmers. Once you get past the 2nd Narrows bridge the scenery is beautiful. Lunch... More

We took another cruise on the Harbour Princess to Indian Arm. The weather was perfect all day. We saw lots of interesting sights throughout our tour and had a wonderful buffet consisting of several salads, salmon and chicken, followed by a choice of desserts. Our coffee cups were filled up whenever needed by very pleasant and efficient staff. An altogether... More
