I had never drove a boat so I was a little nervous, but once Emma (will talk about her later) give you the instructions and send you on your way. The nervous turn to pure joy. At the launch point there is some traffic, but not a lot. Once you get past the 15km speed zone it's all open water and that's when the fun begin. We originally rented a boat for two hours and took the route that took you past the lighthouse. Breath taking views bring your camera, when we got past the light house we were the only boats around it was a nice, quiet, beautiful. Should have rented it for 3 hours. When we returned talked to Emma, she the lady that rented the boats, she a great source for information and fun to talk to. We had so much fun the first day we returned two days later to rent again and took the other boat route towards the falls. If you want to actually see the falls 2 hours is not enough. Both route are great so whatever one you pick you can go wrong. I like the route toward the falls because there is an old power station on the way and the floating McDonalds. (Ask Emma she can tell you were it's located). If you get a chance I would suggest grabbing some food from the public market right next to the boat rental location, rent the boat for 3 hours or more drive the boat to an area where you can stop the boat and just eat lunch in one most beautiful location in Vancouver. Thank you Emma for everything, we had a great time renting boat from you.
