Our highlight of our Vancouver trip was an afternoon Jet boating around Howe Sound. Even though it rained part of the time, it was a real blast! We were well protected and insulated in our suits from the wet, rain and the elements. We saw lots of seals, bald eagles and other interesting wild life. Could not recommend this place... More

The staff there are wonderful and friendly. The Marina is located next to B.C.Ferry Terminal, in the village of Horseshoe Bay. You can park your vehicle in the Marina's parking lot for $10/day. There are restaurants and some shops close by. After you check in, you are given orange suits to wear, which act as life jackets, it will keep... More

Basic, dependable boats at a reasonable price. Much easier to get to Bowen Island or the Seal Colony than from Granville, so we headed this way.

The two hour tour was expertly and safely executed. It was cool so they provided buoyant coveralls for our comfort and safety. Our captain was a local guy and knew the Lund quite well. We saw seals and bald eagles. Good stuff !!

Beautiful location. We saw sea planes, the ferries coming and going. There were seals bobbing around. The mountains surrounding the marina are lovely. The only downside was the marina water was very dirty and there was no shower/laundry/WC for people moored up. - Dirty/disrepair. There was loads of wood, polystyrene balls/bits floating around, oil/fuel and general rubbish in the water.... More

got a groupon to rent a boat to take out in the bay. Very basic boat---not luxury, but dependable. Friendly staff and reasonable rates.

I didn't know about this place but brought their Groupon and came on a sunny Saturday afternoon. I was worried that there would be no boat left to rent, but they have many boats in their inventory. All the workers were helpful. The ocean may look fine from the shore, but will be rough since you're in a small boat.... More

Went on this great little adventure with some friends and had a wonderful time. The Sea Safari tour is on board a Zodiac boat that is open on all sides so be prepared for some sea spray at different times. They outfit passengers in a survival suit (not sure if that is the right name - but it's like a... More

There are two very fun adventures to try at Sewells. You can rent a 16' runabout and explore Horseshoe Bay and the surrounding area for one or two hours. If you like to go on your own this is a great outing for the family. The other fun adventure is taking the Inflatable tour for a fast and exciting ride... More
