    Vancouver Paddlewheel Harbor Cruise
    The dinner cruise on The Constitution paddlewheel was a perfect way to view the harbor and sights of Vancouver. Each deck and the bow afforded a different perspective of the bridges, the shoreline and of course, the lights of the city. Good food, good drinks and the warmth and friendliness of the staff made the experience marvelous and memorable.

    September Sunset Dinner Cruise
    A great option on a beautiful evening when staying in Vancouver, British Columbia overnight after Alaskan cruise. Very relaxing with unique entertainment being provided by a young man and his father(?) playing guitar, bongo drum and singing wide variety of songs. Evening was staffed very well and personable. Full bar and buffet of high quality. Couldn’t ask for more of a beautiful evening on the water the scenery was beyond compare!

    Great Dinner Cruise!
    This was much nicer than I had expected. The boat was NOT the paddle boat pictured, but a much nicer newer three deck ship. Very comfortable! The quality food was very good with a good choice of menu items. They sat us with another lovely couple at a 6 seat table (all were like this) so it gave you plenty of room as you get up frequently. The route took as all around Vancouver from the Harbour, under the Lions Gate Bridge and up False Creek as far as it could go then back again. Very scenic with a gorgeous sunset! Highly recommended!

    Nice evening out.
    Very nice evening cruise with excellent food. They were a little understaffed at the bar area and would not allow you to purchase your own drinks. With one person trying to serve our entire deck floor, she did the best that she could. Perhaps it was that we were not purchasing liquor...

    Good tour, good value
    A very informative one hour sightseeing tour of Vancouver harbour. Our initial booking was cancelled by the operator but they accommodated us on a sailing the next day. Lots of outdoor space on the vessel for photo opportunities. The audio could be improved as it was often difficult to hear the guide on an upper deck.

    It was disappointing.
    It would have been appreciated if you had confirmed with us before setting out. We were only two minutes late. Not only we have missed the tour we have been looking to, we also lost the fee! At least we should be compensated. "Sorry" said by the unwelcoming faces was more disappointing!

    Great, smooth trip seeing so many sites
    Such a great sightseeing trip. The boat was very clean and did a smooth trip. I get seasick very easy and did not get sick during this trip. The announcer did a great job talking about all of the sites as we came up to them and giving a lot of background information. He also had a lot of dad jokes, which I found very funny. The 1 hour trip was just perfect in timing. Definitely a great trip, and we'll probably do it again next time we are in the area.

    Honda Celebration of Lights, July 2023
    If you are interested in viewing the annual Honda Celebration of Light Fireworks competition from the water, I would definitely recommend doing it with Harbor Cruises. Prior to watching the fireworks, we had a wonderful buffet style dinner in what seemed like a floating restaurant that offered stunning unobstructed views of Vancouver, Vancouver's coastal mountains and the ocean while it was still daylight and beautiful nightscape views of Vancouver once it got dark. It really was a wonderful relaxing way to unwind from a stressful day at work on a medical unit. The view of the fireworks from the top deck was stunning [I would definitely bring a warm sweater if you want to watch the fireworks outside as it is cooler out on the water]. The background music was never too loud; THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT the food was good. The evening seemed to have a good flow. We did not seem rushed. There were not too many lulls in between boarding the boat; eating dinner; watching the fireworks. Thanks Harbor Cruises for a wonderful evening at this year's fireworks competitions.

    Great Experience
    It was a very worthwhile trip. The tour narrator did a great job explaining the history and the current operations of the various areas all around the harbor. Definitely recommend.

    Relaxing evening on the harbor~
    Very relaxing evening on this dinner cruise! Nice views of the harbor and all the sights along the way. Food was pretty good - salad, rolls, rice, veggies, vegetarian lasagna (excellent), salmon, prime rib. Alcohol was in addition to the cost - wait staff was pretty good. The live music was excellent! Enjoyed this!

    Good short trip around the harbour
    Really good way to spend an hour getting your bearings around Vancouver. The boat was comfortable and spacious… you didn’t feel crammed in. Lovely trip around Vancouver harbour, good commentary and facts given. Really enjoyed it.

This was a very enjoyable and tasty day cruising up the Indian Arm. It was fully booked but it was comfortable both inside and on deck, and we never felt packed in. Lunch was organized and delicious. It certainly surpassed other dinner cruise experiences I have done. The hot entree choices were chicken and salmon and both were perfect. We had an absolutely enjoyable trip under the glorious B.C. sunshine. Thank you Harbour Cruises.

We took the Indian Arm Luncheon Cruise on a Sunday. Tickets were booked weeks prior. We were a party of 11. Unfortunately, it was raining (hey, do you expect anything less in Vancouver?, lol) but overall it was a great experience. It was our first time. Lunch buffet was delicious. They served salmon, chicken, salad, rice, bread and potato salad. Drinks were quite expensive though.

Personally, I will do this again when it is sunny (fingers crossed) so that I can take cleared pictures.

We did the luncheon cruise and enjoyed it very much. The scenery especially of the mountains is great. The commentary is good though sometimes it was hard to understand with the accent. One of us had the chicken and the other the salmon and thought they were both tasty. The staff is constantly at your table checking your needs. We were able to stand on the foredeck almost alone and enjoy the sights.

I was pleased to discover that I had a Reserved seat for this Harbour lunch cruise. The ship was in great shape. Lunch was elegant and very tasty with plenty of food. Commentary was excellent as were the views. Well worth the money.

The cruise is very scenic and relaxing. Lots to see along the way. The food and drink were decent. The staff were exceptionally good and service levels high. The ship itself is well maintained and there are good sight lines.

Excellent experience and opportunity to see Vancouver area by water. Food was excellent and hospitality was great. You could move about the boat and return to your assigned as you liked. Got to meet fellow sightseers. Overall a fun experience and would do it again.

Between jet lag, tons of walking and some late nights, we were ready for some pampering, and the scenic Indian Arm Lunch Cruise was a great way to explore more of Vancouver without exerting ourselves. The boat is comfortable with both assigned seating at the dining tables and plenty of places to sit and stand on deck, and the periodic commentary about life along the water is interesting and worthwhile. The buffet was very good -- including well-prepared salmon, salad, rice and potato salad. At four hours, it is a longish cruise, but it did give us plenty of time to take in the harbor and fjord.

A friend and I recently took the Vancouver Harbour/Indian Arm luncheon cruise through Viator Travel and really enjoyed it. Seats are assigned so there is no need for a mad rush when boarding is announced. The crew are friendly and helpful, including the office staff on the pier, and the scenery is wonderful. The buffet lunch was delicious (salmon, chicken and other dishes) with dessert/coffee to follow. Again, it's well organized as guests are invited, by table, to make their way to the serving tables and there is a bar where drinks can be purchased. We were fortunate to have good weather, making views from the upper deck breathtaking where there is plenty of seating. I would highly recommend this gem of a trip if you are visiting Vancouver.

On May 26th we took the Harbour Cruise's Indian Arm Half-Day Lunch Cruise (4 hrs) from Vancouver, British Columbia on the M.V. Harbour Princess. Approximately 2.5 hours up and 1.5 hours back. We lucked out with the weather, as it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day with a bit of a breeze.

The route took us through:
• the Vancouver inner harbour where we saw the Vancouver waterfront, four cruise ships at Canada Place, and the container port.
• The Burnaby waterfront via the Burrard Inlet, and
• The spectacular Indian Arm. We viewed the rugged, forested mountain terrain dotted by the odd individual isolated cottage or small groupings of cottages. In most cases, all supplies including water and food would have to be carried in by boat or float plane.
The terminus was at the beautiful Silver Falls, where due to the steepness of the shoreline the ship was able to nose in to within 10 feet of the falls.

Immediately on boarding each group was escorted to there own tables and served water, tea or coffee. Later, we were served a buffet luncheon consisting of fresh buns with butter, green salad with a variety of dressings, chunky potato salad, rice and a selection of chicken and salmon. After finishing the entrée, we were provided with carrot cake with cream cheese icing or a peach torte.

All in all, a very pleasurable experience that we would highly recommend to anyone with a vacation or staycation in Vancouver.

This was just a lovely time for my family members.
The service was excellent and the salmon and herbed chicken very tasty.
We will definitely be doing this Indian Arm Lunch Cruise again!
