The seaplane rise was wonderful (despite the strong smell of kerosene throughout the trip). We had great views, especially of the city. The Capilano Suspension Bridge is set in a beautiful forest, with a lovely walking trail. The bridge itself isn’t for the faint hearted. The tip I received from a tourist behind me was to keep walking and look ahead. If you stop, it swings more.

Excellent tour, Simon our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained ! Great way to see the waterfront !
