These tiny water taxis,ove quickly, are agile, and can scare those afraid of being so close to the water, but they are fun and quickly fears are dismissed once the individual(s) realize they are not going to tip over!

We took the longer boat tour and it was very entertaining and educational. Our capitan had great photos of the sites from the past. Great way to see the sites.

Unique attraction for tourists especially on a nice day. It is a little pricy for the full tour, but it is unique and doesnt harass or endanger our already threatened orca whales.

A great way to see the city from the water and visit a few of the must see sights. You can travel from one side of the harbour to the other and the cost is cheap.

We loved seeing the many harbor sights by boat. The captain of our little boat was excellent but he isn't a tour guide so don't expect that. It's just a great way to get from one point on the harbor to another.....I would definitely use...More

So neat to be on the water in the busy harbour. I used it several times last summer to get from Old town to Fisherman's Wharf.

It had started to rain lightly so we took it from the main landing at the downtown location to one about a block from our resort.
