Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Amazing and informative tour conducted by Rafael. I didn't expect the speedboat to be so much fun and relaxing at the same time. Rafael had a lot of great knowledge and insights about Vancouver and gave great recommendations on things to do when I come back!
