Truly amazing unforgettable experience
kulmohan_s, Jun 2022
Had the experience with family, and one of the great ones, we all enjoyed it very much. The staff was amazing at the ticket counter along with the captain of the boat and the guide, learned about Vancouver history, will reccomend to everyone.
Didn’t care for it
Connie_T, May 2022
Wasn’t worth it for me. The usual crowd of loud drinkers prevented hearing much of the narrative. Somewhat interesting.

Philip_M, Aug 2019
Great little boat. Should have been a little longer for the commentary which was most informative. Reasonable value for money, pitched just right for the tourist - keep it there. The educational commentary was worh a tip but there wasn't a box or pot to tip the crew.
Fun in the Sun!
Joshua_M, Jul 2019
If you're in the Vancouver BC area than you must take the Vancouver Harbor Sightseeing Cruise! I had a lot of fun learning about the history of British Columbia and the ship's crew was very informative. It was definitely a fun family reasonably priced event.
A treat!
Patricia_W, Jul 2019
Enjoyed this little cruise! Just the right length. The harbor is gorgeous and we lucked out because it was a clear, warm day.

If you only have an hour or so to tour Vancouver this is a great choice at a good value. You get to see the harbor and hear some of the history. It's also pretty entertaining -- funny stuff said. Bonus: local beer on tap for sale.

This was a nice relaxing cruise on the harbour and the tour guide commentary was very informative. The circular cruise gave some great views of the Sea planes taking off and landing, Canada Place from the water, North Vancouver and Stanley Park.
