About
Get unobstructed views of Vancouver’s skyline and natural attractions on a zodiac boat trip through the harbor and the surrounding coves. Unlike taking a larger cruise, hopping on this small-boat tour gives you the opportunity to get up close to waterfalls, granite cliffs, and the iconic Siwash Rock. Plus, a guide shares local history and geology so you can learn more about the region while enjoying the views.

Highlights
  • See Vancouver from the water on a zodiac boat tour
  • An insulated suit keeps you warm throughout the trip
  • Learn about your surroundings from a guide
  • The tour provides an ideal vantage point for photos
What to expect
  • Vancouver is a seaside city that should be explored by water. Hop aboard a zodiac boat from Granville Island on this afternoon tour and come away with frame-worthy pictures of iconic landmarks.   Get fitted into a survival suit during a safety briefing before stepping into the boat. Your knowledgeable guide shares historical accounts of Granville Island, the Eugenia Building, Bard on the Beach and the Burrard Street Bridge.   Cross False Creek and follow the shore along Stanley Park, enjoying boat speeds of up to approx. 25 knots (29 mph/46 kph). Stop near the Siwash Rock, an outcrop located near Third Beach and the Lion’s Gate Bridge, and learn about the history of the natural rock formation.   Explore Vancouver Harbour and gain insight into Canada Place, Seaspan, Lion’s Gate Bridge and more. Sail past the Ironworkers Bridge towards Deep Cove. Enter the glacial fjord of Indian Arm, lined with granite cliff faces — this area is boat-access only and is surrounded by untouched natural British Columbia forests.   Admire the cascades of Granite Falls from the zodiac (no deboarding), followed by a brief stop at the north end of Indian Arm and the Wigwam Inn.   Turn around and enjoy close-up views of Silver Falls. Return voyage on the same route, and take in views of Stanley Park, English Bay Beach, the Sulphur Pile, Coal Harbour, the Twin Islands, Racoon Island, Buntzen Powerhouse and more.

Absolutely beautiful experience
Sep 2021
I absolutely loved this tour! The views were absolutely incredible and I would most certainly do this again. We spotted several waterfalls, bald eagles and sea lions along the way. Our tour guide was Greg who was great!! Funny, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable and passionate. I went on my own, there was another solo tourist and a group so if you want to take this on your own feel free! Very comfortable and I had the best time! Ensure you DRESS WARM!! If you anticipate rain I would suggest wearing something waterproof otherwise you will get wet and it will get REALLY COLD! The tour was absolutely worth it and I would 100% recommend and hope to do it again!

AMAZING boat trip!
Despite the very VERY rainy, gloomy and windy fall weather (classic Vancouver), our tour guide Amber was amazing. Her enthusiasm, attitude and expression when telling us about all the different parts of the tour was great. She was super friendly and so was Alex the other staff member. Was also another great way to see a bit more of Vancouver rather than seeing all the mainstream touristy parts. Would 100% recommend these guys to anyone.
Thanks Amber and Alex, you guys are both legends and very down to earth people.

Highly recommend Captain Paul for laughs and a fun education! Great tour! Fantastic!
Sep 2021 • Family
My daughter and I went out with a quiet group today lead by Captain Paul. We’ve had a lot of water tours and excursions with leads but nothing like this, Captain Paul was born for this, he didn’t just point things out, he knew the most wild, interesting facts about every little thing and if it was something nobody knows for sure, he tells you the theory behind it and whether or not he believes it. My daughter is early 20’s and had an absolute blast. Captain Paul was also very funny, in what I call a ‘mom joke’ kind of way, which was great. The girls in the office were super helpful and friendly as well. We walked out into Granville island after the 3 hour tour and recommended this particular tour to people we met from across Canada. You won’t be disappointed, there’s a couple amazing surprises and you’ll learn alot of very cool stuff. Please ladies, tie your hair up tight, it’s windy and wild! 10/10!!

Really worth the ride
Had a blast with Andrea for the granite falls tour! The views of vancouver and the indian arm from water were stunning. We even had the joy of getting a few good waves. Andrea is a great guide, really knowledgeable and generous and able to answer any questions we threw at her :) definitely a must do in Vancouver

Expectation versus reality
I somehow thought that this would be a relaxing tour on the water. It started off as relaxing then things started to unravel once the zodiac boat started to speed. If you like roller coasters and having the feeling that your heart is in your mouth , then this attraction is for you. We had the joy or in my case the misfortune of experience zodiac donuts and a lot of jumping up and down on the waves.
Personally I wouldn’t repeat this experience but if you are a person that likes speed and adrenaline rush then this is for you.

Great way to spend an afternoon
Aug 2021
We had an amazing three hour tour with our captain, Jules, who expertly navigated our group from False Creek into the Burrard Inlet where she shared stories about Siwash Rock and Stanley Park. From there we headed north under Lions Gate Bridge to Deep Cove, The Indian Arm, Granite Falls and Silver Falls. Along the way Jules provided a great deal of information about each stop and even found time to throw in a couple of zodiac doughnuts along the way. Excellent time!

Me & my partner went on this tour Sun 18th July 2021. We would highly recommend this tour. All the staff were well trained in making sure everyone filled out the liability forms etc. Simon was our tour guide, he was fantastic, he made the tour interesting and you could hear him very well.. Me & my partner learnt alot about boats, history and the scenery was amazing. I would recommend you wear the suits if the weather is chilly.

Fantastic day yesterday. First time in Vancouver with the family and we got to see this beautiful city from a different perspective. Our tour guide Greg, was funny and informative throughout the whole trip. He made it fun for the kids. We saw many seals and learned about the history of Vancouver and Grandville Island. The water falls were my favourite. Definitely take a sweater at least, the ride can get chilly or take their offer of the wet suit if you wish.
