In the early evening, head over to the predesignated watersports center on Granville Island, where your guide provides a 30-minute safety briefing before you scope out your selected single or double Sea-Doo watercraft. Strap into your seat and follow your guide’s lead out of English Bay.
The Jet Ski might feel more like a sports car on the water as you zoom north toward Howe Sound, roaring past the small island of Bowyer Island. Take a moment to hover near Pam Rocks, an outcrop that some 150 harbor seals call home. You may spot bald eagles overhead, as the Christie Islet Migratory Bird Sanctuary is just a short jaunt from here.
Get back on track as you swerve south to Bowen Island, a peaceful wooded island, where locals enjoy its secluded bays and swimming beaches. Park your Sea-Doo here and mosey over to the dockside Doc Morgan’s Marina Restaurant & Pub, a well-known local favorite eatery.
Take a seat inside the restaurant, out on the patio, or up on top of the rooftop deck. Your tour comes with a main course and a drink of your choice (draft beer, house wine, soda or juice). As you admire the marina, enjoy your order — the house specialty is fish and chips — with a cold beverage like beer from a local microbrewery.
After dinner, cruise back to Granville Island on your Sea-Doo, where your 3.5-hour tour ends.
