We booked it online and really did not know what to expect but from the first Lady that greeted us and helped us work through putting on the float jacket and filling out all the paperwork she was just super nice very patient. It was well organized clean and we had a great time.

It was an amazing experience!! My husband and I loved it!!! The boat is going at a really nice speed. The Captain (a woman) was excellent and gave good explanations. The only advice I would give would be to wear long pants and a sweater, because on the water with the speed of the boat it can be cool/cold. But otherwise I recommend, because we appreciate the beauty of Vancouver in a totally different way

Myself and 7 family members chose the tour today over casual site seeing boat cruise. This trip was far more exciting. Raphael was our guide and we were all impressed with his knowledge and education of all the sites. The boat made 8 stops throughout the Harbour for plenty of photo opportunities. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone of all age groups. I will also do the tour again that's how fun it is.
