What You Can Expect

Vancouver Harbour Zodiac Sightseeing Cruise

Zodiac Sightseeing Tour

Your morning or afternoon cruise begins in Vancouver’s downtown waterfront. Meet your skipper guide, slip into the required red cruiser suit – a life preserver and waterproof outfit in one! – and get a safety tutorial. Then board the open-air, purpose-built Zodiac boat and set off on a scenic ride through Burrard Inlet. Holding a max of 12 passengers, this boat offers a more intimate experience as your group quietly winds through narrow passages not accessible by big boat and gets your closer to native wildlife.

Your expert guide’s commentary makes this an unforgettable wildlife-spotting expedition through gorgeous Vancouver waterways. Glide along the water at speeds up to 30 mph (50 kph), viewing the variegated greenery of Coal Harbour, the North Shore, English Bay, False Creek and Stanley Park, and spot local wildlife like dolphins, harbor seals and bald eagles. 

Along the cruise, catch lovely views of locals spending time on the beach, freighters docked in some of Vancouver’s major ports, and the skyscrapers that mark British Columbia’s largest city. Your fun 90-minute boat tour returns back to the departure point.

Loved this tour -- was a fun ride and we had a great captain who told us all about the area as we went. They provide super warm suits so that no one was cold, even on a grey day. A really terrific way to see the area -- I highly recommend it.

I literally stepped off my flight, got on a train, and headed straight for this Cruise. Having it begin in the afternoon was very convenient, and there was still lots of sun out to really enjoy the views of the harbor. I certainly recommend this tour, just be sure that you are honest with yourself about your physical capabilities or limitations---there is a lot of rough-riding on the waves. You get a great view of the harbor and the guide/driver will share interesting historical tidbits about Vancouver.

Also, know that you are in good hands. Our boat came across another with a man who had jumped off of the Lions Gate bridge, and our driver Ian, quickly sprang into action----alerting and getting the Coast Guard over, so this gentleman was transported to the hospital.

Excellent tour. We did the 5pm tour on a Saturday and our captain was great. I learned so much about the history of Vancouver and we did a lot of cool turns at high speeds. Very fun!

What an exciting, thrilling 90 minutes. Dominic, the captain, is awesome. There was one issue...Viator apparently sent the wrong time to the company and booked me on an earlier trip. The trip I was actually booked for got sold out, so they had to move me to another time. Ugh!!! Of course--the company blames Viator for this. It was just an inconvenience, but definitely worth the wait. This tour is all inclusive of West Vancouver, it covers Coal Harbor, English Bay, the Burrard Inlet and more. If you are afraid of high speeds on the open water, I'd skip this one, but if you like adventure, history, knowledge and a few bumps over some waves, you will definitely love this ride of a lifetime!
