What a way to see the harbour of Vancouver but on a Paddle Wheeler. Great views of the city from the river. The captain was great with a narrative of iconic shore locations, even locations out in the harbour.
Even though it was raining the paddle boat still set sail. It was for an hour and during that time the staff were pleasant, informative about what we were seeing, smartly dressed and attentive.
You got to see Vancouver from a different angle and it didn’t disappoint. Make sure you arrive 10/15 minutes before departure to get a good spot.
While we were a few minutes late leaving, the harbor tour was a really nice way to spend an hour on a sunny afternoon. We were able to see the harbour seals on the north shore as well as a couple of sea planes taking off and landing. Next time we will try and take the evening Dinner cruise.
I had enjoyable time to see the view from the sea, one hour is very suitable time for the cruise!
Very nice to see the take off and landing of seaplane.
We did this cruise after a bus tour of the city and although we were looking at a lot of the same places, it gave us a totally different perspective.
Seating is available inside or out and being a sunny day we opted for out on the top deck. Great relaxing tour with informative tour guides.
