There's nothing spectacular about the cruise around Vancouver's harbour. You know exactly what you will see because you see most of it from the shore. But it is a very pleasant way to spend an hour, with a couple of beers from the on board bar, and some very dramatic views back to the Downtown Vancouver skyline. So I would... More

A quick trip to see a bit of the harbor. Good narration. Outdoor sitting fills up right away. Safe for kids. Staff is good and friendly. A great walk to kill a hour and relax.

We had a sunset Cruise around the Vancouver City. The views were spectacular. The staff were helpful and provided great service. The cabin was air-conditioned with multiple viewing decks. The meal was great but we had to order ahead. We had ample vegetarian options for all of us.There was also live music that made the evening ore special. Overall a... More

We did the dinner cruise and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were lucky to get fabulous weather with a beautiful sunset and terrific scenery. Predetermined tables avoided a scramble, the food was delicious and the service was great.

I recently went on their Indian Arm Lunch Cruise. It was fantastic! We had a Buffet Lunch of Baked Salmon and Roasted Chicken, which was very tasty... fresh and not overcooked, overprocessed (like left in hot truck too long), 2 salads, rolls, dessert selection of 2 pies, and coffee. Other drinks extra. The scenery was fantastic. The captain went out... More

This cruise was around 72 dollars for a four hour luncheon cruise on the water up to Indian's arm. Beautiful forested coastline, pretty houses, mountains and a waterfall. Good buffet lunch included, choice of chicken or salmon, two salads, bread, coffee tea and dessert. Alcohol not included. Wine a better deal if you buy a bottle. Great Irish coffee, and... More

I have been on the Sunset Dinner Cruise in the past and I really enjoyed it. Recently, my father and I decided to go on the Indian Arm Luncheon Cruise. The scenery was breathtaking! The food was delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. My dad and I could not put our cameras down the whole time. The most... More

I chose this cruise (4 hour Indian Arm) to see views of Vancouver. Unfortunately as a single traveler I was seated in an area without a view in preassigned seats. Needless to say to I was displeased. Staff is apathetic at best. I can't see how Harbour Cruise could seat one or 2 people at a table in front of... More

Of course the scenic cruise is nice, the view is splendid from the boat and our eyes enjoyed each minute of it. The service is average, although they are doing their best, the music too loud, and above all the food is not good at all. Honestly, hopefully there was a cheese platter because the rest was uneatable.
