With the stunning North Shore mountains as its backdrop and a soaring modern skyline, Vancouver is one of the world’s most beautiful waterfront cities. So it makes sense that its grandeur is best experienced by boat—here are some can’t-miss ideas.

Vancouver Harbor Cruises
A relaxing Vancouver Harbour cruise takes you along the city skyline. Choose between a sunset dinner cruise, a lunch cruise up Indian Arm, or a shorter sightseeing cruise. You can even charter a private sailboat.

Whale-Watching Tours
A whale-watching tour will take you to the best spots to view pods of local orcas, gray and humpback whales. Keep an eye out for the porpoises, seals, sea lions, and bald eagles that thrive along the Pacific Coast.

Zodiac Tours
Speeding around in a little Zodiac boat is an exciting way to tour the waterways surrounding Vancouver, and you’re sure to get some incredible photos of the area’s iconic landmarks. Opt for an afternoon tour from Granville Island up Indian Arm, or take a trip to Bowen Island for dinner before heading back to the mainland. 

False Creek Ferry
Get a great overview of Vancouver’s city landmarks like Granville Island and False Creek with a hop-on hop-off ferry pass. You can catch the multicolored ferry at any of the nine convenient stops located in Vancouver's Inner Harbour, including Science World, Granville Island, Chinatown, the Maritime Museum and the Aquatic Centre. Boats leave every five to 15 minutes during operating hours.
