Relaxing afternoon

My family had a good relaxing time there. The weather was good and the scenery was pretty. We saw a few harbour seals sunbathing too which was very cute.

Live commentary, lovely open air vessel, sunny day and lots of space to move around onboard. This 1 hr cruise gives a great intro to Vancouver and surrounds. Little bit of history sprinkled into general tourist info provide for a relaxed and informative trip. Suits all ages

We did the harbour cruise on Sunday, August 14th. It was so much! It's a great way to see Vancouver from the water side. And, the narrative about the facts of Vancouver is very interesting. The cost is reasonable and we definitely thought we got our monies work. It was a beautiful, warm sunny day but when you get out... More

We went on a harbour cruise of the inlet as we have seen West Van and its ocean perch as well as English Bay, Third Beach. We had not taken this particular cruise of the North Van side. Quite enjoyable I have to say. We did not do a cruise and meal, it was just an afternoon cruise for a... More

If the weather is nice, the 1 hour harbour cruise on the stern-wheeler is a delightful way to enjoy the scenery and get sun and fresh air. This is not too expensive and worth the money.

We took the one hour cruise on the MPV Constitution and enjoyed our time on the water. A great way to see a different view of the Alaskan Cruise ships and also the variety of container shipping in port. Then we took to the north side of the harbour to see the ship repair facilities and other local industries. Perhaps... More

We explored the harbour and learnt some of the history of the city whilst on board, which proved useful in planning our stay and general getting orientated. Very enjoyable trip with an informative commentary.

Four of us took the one hour harbour cruise on a Friday afternoon. They have 4 different sailing times that are first come first served. The seating up top is limited and in direct sunlight. There is lots of seating inside but not many people seemed to want that section. There is a bar on the bottom deck and beers... More

Staying in Stanley Park

Neighborhood Profile
Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views, beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical getaway spot for friends and families, especially as it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its best equestrian outlets.
