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.

We are both sailors - he with an international captain’s license. This was the opportunity to get on the water in some fashion returning home. The tour did not disappoint. Wonderful vistas and information we would have experienced otherwise. Your entire staff was welcoming and helpful. Stephanie and Natasha., in particular, are professional yet engaging and full of great information. We really hit the jackpot when we got them as our guides. Thank you!!

Lucia_R, Thank you so much for your lovely review! We were so honoured to have you both on board and that we were able to exceed expectations!

Our guides were fabulous!...
Sonja_K
, May 2022
Our guides were fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. However, we reached out to Viator to helps us find a whale watching tour. Our coordinator booked us on a trip that explicitly says "no whale watching on this trip." We absolutely enjoyed our experience with Prince of Whales, but our coordinator booked us on a trip that did not cater to our specific request.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Sonja_K, Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so glad you enjoyed your Sea Vancouver tour, even though it wasn’t what you initially expected! We hope in the near future you will be able to join us on our whale watching trip next time around, and you can have an equally incredible time!

Robert and Natasha were FABULOUS. We enjoyed our trip with them so much. They are both knowledgeable and skilled guides with so much information about their city and country!! Their love of their jobs is quite evident. They treated us with such respect and enjoyed the trip as much as we did. They were SO HELPFUL in getting us there and ready to board. Thank you to the entire staff from my daughter and I.
