Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Vancouver is a seaside city that should be explored by water. Hop aboard a zodiac boat from Granville Island on this afternoon tour and come away with frame-worthy pictures of iconic landmarks.

 

Get fitted into a survival suit during a safety briefing before stepping into the boat. Your knowledgeable guide shares historical accounts of Granville Island, the Eugenia Building, Bard on the Beach and the Burrard Street Bridge.

 

Cross False Creek and follow the shore along Stanley Park, enjoying boat speeds of up to approx. 25 knots (29 mph/46 kph). Stop near the Siwash Rock, an outcrop located near Third Beach and the Lion’s Gate Bridge, and learn about the history of the natural rock formation.

 

Explore Vancouver Harbour and gain insight into Canada Place, Seaspan, Lion’s Gate Bridge and more. Sail past the Ironworkers Bridge towards Deep Cove.

Enter the glacial fjord of Indian Arm, lined with granite cliff faces — this area is boat-access only and is surrounded by untouched natural British Columbia forests.  

Admire the cascades of Granite Falls from the zodiac (no deboarding), followed by a brief stop at the north end of Indian Arm and the Wigwam Inn.

 

Turn around and enjoy close-up views of Silver Falls. Return voyage on the same route, and take in views of Stanley Park, English Bay Beach, the Sulphur Pile, Coal Harbour, the Twin Islands, Racoon Island, Buntzen Powerhouse and more.

Enjoyed seeing Vancouver...

Enjoyed seeing Vancouver from a different view point: the water. The guide’s comments were informative and added significant interest. It was awesome to see the landscape in the Indian arm. It would be appreciated if they could figure out a way to keep their customers dry while getting out of their suits when it is pouring.

Paul was simply amazing as our captain. He was friendly, informative, and patient. The boat ride itself was great! This is the best tour I’ve experienced in B.C. It’s well worth the cost.

We found it fun, informative and comfortable. Our guide (forget her name but she had a safari hat on) was great. It is always a good sign when the trip seemed to go by much quicker than the 3 hours. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

Great experience even though it rained on the way back! The views, the tour guides, and the overall experience were awesome. We also saw a bunch of adorable harbour seals! For anyone going when you know it might rain, bring glasses or a face shield (and know that the survival suits are NOT waterproof! - your butt might get wet, so bring a change of clothes if you’re planning on sticking around Granville island afterwards)

Fantastic views of the city!

Had some of the most amazing views of Vancouver while on this zodiac tour! We definitely wouldn't have had the opportunity to see these views without being on the boat. Would definitely recommend if you're interested in seeing some different views of Vancouver!

The boat ride is super fun and fast which I loved! The scenery is absolutely breathtaking in every way imaginable and unimaginable too! Canada is certainly a beautiful country! Lucky us! Greg was an excellent guide. He pointed out lots of great marine life and shared some important historical issues too. I highly recommend this trip!
