Overview
See Vancouver from the water on a scenic boat tour of the city’s top landmarks. Nature lovers can get unobstructed photographs of seals, the city skyline, and iconic attractions such as Lighthouse Park and Siwash Rock. Plus, traveling by boat lets you see more of the city without worrying about traffic or waiting in line at attractions.
Highlights
  • Visit a seal colony and enjoy views of Vancouver on a boat tour
  • Learn about the surrounding attractions from your guide
  • See more on a small-boat tour than a slower cruise
  • The driver slows down for photographs of the top attractions

My Brother and I went out with Dylan and had a fantastic time. We were lucky and had some beautiful weather and a knowledgeable driver/guide. Due to the glassy conditions we got up to speeds over 35 knots! would recommend to friends.
