“Great way to spend a couple hours in Vancouver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I have lived in Vancouver in 31 years and I am always amazed at how the city looks from the water. If you have a couple hours I would DEFINITELY recommend Granville Island Boat Rentals to check out the city. They are extremely professional and friendly and I would recommend them to my family and friends! Have fun in Vancouver!

“Excellent customer service, and an amazing experience!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

From the get-go the customer service was fantastic, we were welcomed and then briefed on the trip we were about to embark. Myself and my wife took a 2 hour round trip and it was an amazing way to see Vancouver. In my short visit to Vancouver i managed to go there twice and thinking of going one more time before i had back to grey London, UK. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to visit Vancouver or even if you live here and haven't been yet. p.s the Irish couple that work there really made the experience worth while.

“Amazing! Top notch customer service, and breathtaking views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

WOW. What a great way to see Vancouver! Myself and 5 friends rented a boat for two hours yesterday, and it was by far the coolest thing we have done since we have been in Vancouver! The staff were so helpful and knowledgable, they helped us to pick out a great route which allowed us to see some beautiful islands along with other gorgeous scenery! We stopped at one stage and jumped into the water for a quick dip and took full advantage of the built in iPod player... It was so hard to go back when our time was running out! We even got to see a seal when we were at the end of our trip, it wasa great way to end our wonderful day. We all agreed that when our family and friends come to visit us from Ireland, we will most DEFINITELY be bringing them for a trip with Granville Island Boat Rentals. Thank you Emma and Aidan for your great service and for helping us make lifelong memories!

“Outstanding, a great way to see Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Top shelf service, advice and instructions from staff member Emma. The 17ft cruiser was adequate for two people and a long day of boating to see the seals and then onto Indian Arm and the Granite Waterfalls. The panoramic landscape in Indian Arm is absolutely beautiful. Near vertical granite covered in dense fir was special.

“The best attraction in Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

We found this attraction using TripAdvisor. All the reviews were correct - the trip on this boat is fantastic. We rented a boat for 2 hours for 6 persons. we sailed around the peninsula under the Lions gate Bridge. The view was beautiful and the speed of the boat was blast. Don't miss this attraction.
