Vancouver Harbour Tours

notes from Mom


I remember when I was in grade seven, our class made a day trip to Vancouver.  It was our big fanfare before moving onto junior high school. To be honest with you, I can't remember anything we did, except for the tour we took of Vancouver's inner harbour.  We putted around the harbour in a small ferry boat, with the "Captain" pointing out all the interesting sites.  Having never left Vancouver Island, I thought Vancouver was pretty much the neatest place ever.  The harbour tour was great because you could see a lot without having to get in and out of  a vehicle.

If you'd like to get a grand tour of  Vancouver's inner harbour without fighting traffic, give the Harbour Tour a try.  If nothing else you'll enjoy the peace and relaxation of being on the water.  The view is incredible, so be sure to bring your camera.


You can catch the boat at the north foot of Denman Street (beside Stanley Park).  The tour takes about one-and-a-quarter hours.  You'll cruise past Stanley Park, the Lion's Gate Bridge, and Gastown.
