What You Can Expect

Granite Falls Zodiac Tour

Travelling the Glacial Fjord

Vancouver is a seaside city that should be explored by water. Hop aboard a zodiac boat from Granville Island on this afternoon tour and come away with frame-worthy pictures of iconic landmarks.
 
Get fitted into a survival suit during a safety briefing before stepping into the boat. Your knowledgeable guide shares historical accounts of Granville Island, the Eugenia Building, Bard on the Beach and the Burrard Street Bridge.
 
Cross False Creek and follow the shore along Stanley Park, enjoying boat speeds of up to approx. 25 knots (29 mph/46 kph). Stop near the Siwash Rock, an outcrop located near Third Beach and the Lion’s Gate Bridge, and learn about the history of the natural rock formation.
 
Explore Vancouver Harbour and gain insight into Canada Place, Seaspan, Lion’s Gate Bridge and more. Sail past the Ironworkers Bridge towards Deep Cove.

Enter the glacial fjord of Indian Arm, lined with granite cliff faces — this area is boat-access only and is surrounded by untouched natural British Columbia forests.  

Admire the cascades of Granite Falls from the zodiac (no deboarding), followed by a brief stop at the north end of Indian Arm and the Wigwam Inn.
 
Turn around and enjoy close-up views of Silver Falls. Return voyage on the same route, and take in views of Stanley Park, English Bay Beach, the Sulphur Pile, Coal Harbour, the Twin Islands, Racoon Island, Buntzen Powerhouse and more.

This is a really nice trip. Shane our captain was not only friendly, articulate and fun, but had mastery of his boat. We hit really rough water when returning through a strip of ocean. It was scary seas and yet we all felt confident of Shane's skills. Despite the unanticipated state of the ocean upon entry, we still rate this as a 9/10 trip! Thank you Shane for being so good at what you do.

This was the perfect way to experience Vancouver and its surrounding waterways. It was a very fun time that went well beyond our expectations. The combination of a great tour guide, breathtaking scenery especially in the Indian Arm and even a good dose of wildlife with just the right amount of time on the water made for an afternoon my wife and I will always remember. So glad we chose this over a lunch cruise.

This tour was much more than I expected. Our tour guide, Raphael, was great. He gave us a lot of information about the area and also made the experience a lot of fun. We made several stops looking for and finding wildlife and for opportunities to take pictures.

Awesome trip, very professional, very safe, very fun and interesting. Much preferred to dinner cruise. Faith was an amazing boat person and was kind enough to bring us to some lovely idyllic spots in the fjord...we saw baby seals and even a bald eagle in flight. Couldn't have been better.
