    Very interesting relaxing and enjoyable. Lunch was lovely. We read complaints over dessert and other petty nonsense. We found the whole experience well worth it and yes we would do it again.

    Awesome experience...worth it!
    MALIO_P, Jul 2022
    It is definitely worth the money to take this cruise because it is a much more relaxed pace. The food is great and seconds are allowed, staff are all friendly and accommodating. If they sell out a cruise though, be prepared that you may not be able to position yourself for the best photo spots on the boat because everyone else either wants those spots too or they are waiting to use the same spots for photos as soon as it is available. Some guests just stay at the prime photo spots like they are the only passengers on board. Also, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that if you want to make it out of the parking lot ahead of the rush and all the other vehicular traffic that you position yourself near the exit door when the boat docks back at the end.

    The waterfall and the food was fab! Good value. Well organised. Clean and safety conscious. Would definitely recommend this.
    Fabulous cruise
    corlettf, Jun 2022
    This tour was great, we were out for over 4 hours and the scenery once out the harbour was breathtaking. Lunch was average but it wasn’t the lunch we were going for. The Burrard Inlet was beautiful and the captains skill at getting us right up to the waterfall was amazing. I would 100% recommend this tour.
    Patricia_Z, Jun 2022

    Judy_S, Jun 2022
    We highly recommend this voyage. The weather was perfect, the views of the ocean and the mountains just awesome. Excellent lunch. We will do this again ❤️
    Great way to see the scenery
    CAROLYN_A, Jun 2022
    Great day for a cruise. The narrative is fabulous. The food was a bit soggy, I’ve had better. And people were in line for 2nds before we were even allowed to line up for our first serving.
    Lovely views.
    Kevin_L, Jun 2022
    We thought the food was only ok. A better variety would be nicer. Also, the person serving did not want to give my husband two pieces of chicken, even though he was serving everyone else chicken and salmon, and we noticed there was a huge tray of chicken leftover.
    Great trip
    Margaret_G, Jun 2022
    We enjoyed a really good trip. There was plenty of good food, the commentary was interesting, other people were friendly and good to talk to, and of course the scenery was spectacular.
