We went on the one hour harbour cruise so that we could see Vancouver and her different shorelines. It was a beautiful sunny warm day and the cruise was very nice and relaxing. We sat on the left side of the boat and the commentary was mainly about the right side so I would suggest that you sit facing the... More

Loved this trip. Just an hour around the harbour. The commentary was great fun and very informative. Very easy to listen to and to hear. The boat was comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and easy to deal with. Highly recommended.

Very nice and relaxing one hour cruise. It's very ideal for photo taking and sightseeing. The tour guide did a great job and provided many details each step on the way. The cruise really made my day worth it, how I wished it lasted a little more than one hour!

A bit expensive, especially since it was raining with limited views. Food was good, but not great. Make sure you do this cruise on the longer days of summer and on a sunny day. Atmosphere was nice in the old paddle boat.

My wife and I went on the sunset cruise and it was most enjoyable. We picked a day when it was nice and sunny and by the time the sun was setting it was gorgeous and we got some great photos. The food was also very nice and the staff very friendly and looked after us well.

I booked and paid for tickets for the Indian Arms lunch cruise on the company website and picked up the tickets at the pier 40 minutes before sailing. When we boarded, we were told that they didn't have a table for us. We had to wait 30 minutes before the situation was rectified. Our reservation was on the computer system... More

This was a nice 1 hour + cruise around the harbor. Live narration describing everything you see - very interesting. HIghly recommend. Free parking lot close by. Warning - there is no public bathroom anywhere near this dock, so be prepared to wait until you board the ship.

This was a lovely tour of the Vancouver Harbour. And even better b/c we had a groupon which made it half the price. Bring a sweater and stand up top for the best experience. Got some of my favorite pics from this experience.

Staying in Stanley Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views, beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical getaway spot for friends and families, especially as it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its best equestrian outlets.
