Today I rented a boat with my girlfriend and 2 other friends from Granville island boat rentals. Considering I had never driven a boat before I was understandably nervous, I needn't have worried. The couple who run the company are the most helpful and caring you could want and after I got the run through from them on the boat... More

Emma & Aidan (sp?) were awesome employees. Explained everything well and sooner than we knew, we were on our way! Half way through after changing our gas tank, we had a bit of trouble starting back - we called in and they answered right away. Gave us calm directions and after a bit, we were flyin! Awesome place to rent... More

Hired the best boat for 5 hours, and made a day of it. We went out in to the harbour instead of up the inlet as my two kids really wanted to see the seal colony. We received a fairly detailed briefing and Emma was really friendly, advising us the best way to go and what to expect. The small... More

We live in Vancouver and this is one of the attractions I love the best. The staff are amazing and make sure you are comfortable with the boat before you leave the dock. On board there is a map showing you the way to the most visited sites and about how long it will take to get there. The boats... More

Terrified myself for the first ten mins leaving the bay and then spotted seals, a bald eagle and laid down the gas to take off - fantastic. Felt a superstar and the boat was very easy to handle - just take it easy in the bay area specifically as a bit choppy until you get used to it. Company was... More
