Jet ski is definitely the best way to see Vancouver Harbour! We were given a jet ski each and had great fun free riding around the area. Our guide Alex was great - he had so many great little stories about the local area and taught us all sorts of fun tricks on the jet ski! Would definitely recommend

We opted for the City and Seal Tour on a blustery day in August. The sea was choppy and the family due to ride with us cancelled as they felt it was too rough to ride, so we had the boat to ourselves and what a ride! Our guide, Andrew, skilfully navigated the waves with exhilarating speed and once we... More

We did a Granite Falls Boat tour for 3 hours on a Zodiac. It was absolutely amazing. Clayton made the trip super fun and interesting and the landscape up Indian Arm is something else. I wish I could just move out there. I can definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants to have an amazing experience. You can go... More

I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone. The views out there are spectacular and there's no better way to take them in. Our guide Clayton was hilarious and I was surprised how much I learned about this city from him even after having lived here for a couple of years.

Did the Light the Night kayak/SUP tour in August 2016. Was a great way to see the evening arrive! The kayaks have LED underlighting and the SUP boards have lighting on the paddles. You basically go out for a gentle paddle, with your guide pointing out interesting things enroute. The really cool bit is when it goes properly dark and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
