I took a one hour Harbour cruise with my family and it was a wonderful experience. The weather was fantastic and while on board cool breeze add more spice to the experience. It is a guided tour but if you on the top deck, try to stay close to the speakers, if you really care about the commentary.It is bit... More

Beautiful 4 hour cruise that takes you along the water all the way up Indian arm. Outstanding scenery and a must for any tourist visiting Vancouver (who is not going to Alaska) . the 80 dollar cad cost is fair for the nice (but not exceptional) lunch which includes Salmon, Chicken, rice Potato Salad, regular salad, and a bland dessert....

We've done both the one-hour harbour tour and the four-hour lunch cruise. Both were enjoyable and good value, but the lunch cruise especially so. It goes up Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm and the scenery was quite unexpectedly spectacular - it could almost have been Norway. The lunch was a buffet, which meant it was easy to find things one...

Loved the views, the food, the cleanliness, the wonderful music... all really good until 30-45 minutes before the cruise ended.... musicians stopped, napkins were pulled from under our elbows, waiters waiting by your side to take glasses away, halting the conversations that built up during the breathtaking sail; a fastidious rush that left an impression for the rest of the...

Went on the sunset cruise. Beautiful views of the coast the whole way. Great photo opps. Went by an eagle and the park. Really enjoyed being on the deck most of the night. Interesting views also of all of the new high rises along the coast. The staff were all super friendly. Suggest eating before you go - the food... More

We took a Harbour Cruise with our grandchildren on the paddle boat, Britannia. The cruise goes past the downtown area as far as the port before going over to the North Shore and circling back to the starting point. Cruise takes an hour. Given the beauty of the surrounding area it is hard to understand why the cruise does not... More

Hi there, Thank you for your review. Our 1 hour Vancouver Harbour Tour takes place on our paddle wheeler, MPV Constitution. The general route for the tour does remain within the Burrard Inlet, and as you mentioned, to the Port of Vancouver, North Vancouver, Stanley Park and back into Coal Harbour. During the one hour time slot, our vessel would... More

We were lucky to have great weather, was a good trip. Boats are a little run down and could do with some maintenance, but the trip itself was great. Dinner was good, not much selection but one red meat, one fish and one other, only 2/3 salads and bread rolls. Desserts were great too. As for the cruise, it was... More

We typically join this cruise once yearly so that we can observe the changes in the Vancouver and North Vancouver skylines. This cruise is best viewed on the hot and sunny day. Over the years we've noticed that the professionalism of the crew has fallen off and the commentary now leaves a lot to be desired (poorly read from a... 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.
