On Granville Island (Bridges restaurant - the big yellow building) Please show up 30 minutes prior to departure, the boat will not wait for late guests.

This activity will end right where it started.
Your morning or afternoon cruise begins in Vancouver’s downtown waterfront. Meet your skipper guide, slip into the required red cruiser suit – a life preserver and waterproof outfit in one! – and get a safety tutorial. Then board the open-air, purpose-built Zodiac boat and set off on a scenic ride through Burrard Inlet. Holding a max of 12 passengers, this boat offers a more intimate experience as your group quietly winds through narrow passages not accessible by big boat and gets your closer to native wildlife.

Your expert guide’s commentary makes this an unforgettable wildlife-spotting expedition through gorgeous Vancouver waterways. Glide along the water at speeds up to 30 mph (48 kph), viewing the variegated greenery of Coal Harbour, the North Shore, English Bay, False Creek and Stanley Park, and spot local wildlife like dolphins, harbor seals and bald eagles. 

Along the cruise, catch lovely views of locals spending time on the beach, freighters docked in some of Vancouver’s major ports, and the skyscrapers that mark British Columbia’s largest city. Your fun 90-minute boat tour returns back to the departure point.
