About
Get unobstructed views of Vancouver’s skyline and natural attractions on a zodiac boat trip through the harbor and the surrounding coves. Unlike taking a larger cruise, hopping on this small-boat tour gives you the opportunity to get up close to waterfalls, granite cliffs, and the iconic Siwash Rock. Plus, a guide shares local history and geology so you can learn more about the region while enjoying the views.

My mom wanted to get together for my birthday but I didn't want to do the usual dinner. Since I know the tourism industry continues to be an industry that isn't bouncing back quickly since the pandemic hit, I thought it would be nice to do a tour in our own town. A quick Google search brought me to a couple of pages of great tour ideas but since I didn't want to book through an agency, I went right to Vancouver Water Adventure's website (and saved a few dollars). I booked the Granite Falls tour for me, my mom and my brother, a day in advance and we were able to get spots without any issues.

Simon and Greg were our guides for the afternoon and they were fantastic. Fun and knowledgeable, they took us on a great ride up the inlet to see some spectacular views - some seas, jellyfish and cormorants. No eagles, unfortunately, but it was still a great time. The donuts were fun too (and not the Lee's kind).

I do recommend sunscreen if you're not going to wear the suit (you have the option to wear your own jacket and a life vest if you don't want to wear the suit). I decided to wear the suit halfway done up and leave my arms bare, wearing only a sleeveless shirt, and I'm not sure that was the best of my ideas of the day.

Book this tour directly through Vancouver Water Adventures (a family-owned company), bring your cameras and sunscreen, and enjoy a three hour tour of your backyard. I learned a few things!

My daughter and I went out with a quiet group today lead by Captain Paul. We’ve had a lot of water tours and excursions with leads but nothing like this, Captain Paul was born for this, he didn’t just point things out, he knew the most wild, interesting facts about every little thing and if it was something nobody knows for sure, he tells you the theory behind it and whether or not he believes it. My daughter is early 20’s and had an absolute blast. Captain Paul was also very funny, in what I call a ‘mom joke’ kind of way, which was great. The girls in the office were super helpful and friendly as well. We walked out into Granville island after the 3 hour tour and recommended this particular tour to people we met from across Canada. You won’t be disappointed, there’s a couple amazing surprises and you’ll learn alot of very cool stuff. Please ladies, tie your hair up tight, it’s windy and wild! 10/10!!

We had an amazing three hour tour with our captain, Jules, who expertly navigated our group from False Creek into the Burrard Inlet where she shared stories about Siwash Rock and Stanley Park. From there we headed north under Lions Gate Bridge to Deep Cove, The Indian Arm, Granite Falls and Silver Falls. Along the way Jules provided a great deal of information about each stop and even found time to throw in a couple of zodiac doughnuts along the way. Excellent time!

This was y first experience with them. The tour started on time, the boat was exactly what you see in the pictures. It was big and comfortable. I particularly appreciate the shock absorbers around the boat, they made it very stable and with much less turbulence than I had previously experienced with other boats. Our tour guide was Simon, he was very friendly, very good sense of humour and very knowledgeable. Really appreciated that he made a stop at various places and provided very interesting info. He was also very skillful at riding the boat which made everyone feel safe.

While we did stop at granite falls we were not allowed to get off the boat. I would have liked for us to get off the boat, and maybe spend 10-15 minutes at the falls, get our feet wet, have a snack and then get back on the boat.

This is my first time going with Water Adventures, and I would recommend them to anyone new to the area as a grand introductory, or as a resident, a very scenic adventure. You get everything you ask for and you get to enjoy warm sunlight, splashing waves and high speeds to get the wind in your hair. Its truly a nice thing to do on a day off or an add-on to your vacation in beautiful British Columbia.

Me & my partner went on this tour Sun 18th July 2021. We would highly recommend this tour. All the staff were well trained in making sure everyone filled out the liability forms etc. Simon was our tour guide, he was fantastic, he made the tour interesting and you could hear him very well.. Me & my partner learnt alot about boats, history and the scenery was amazing. I would recommend you wear the suits if the weather is chilly.

I got this trip for my son’s 30th birthday. We live in Vancouver and I wanted to do something different. Our tour guides were respectful, communicated well and created a wonderful tour! They were also open to and respectful to new information and allowed the clients to add their knowledge.

AMAZING boat trip!
Despite the very VERY rainy, gloomy and windy fall weather (classic Vancouver), our tour guide Amber was amazing. Her enthusiasm, attitude and expression when telling us about all the different parts of the tour was great. She was super friendly and so was Alex the other staff member. Was also another great way to see a bit more of Vancouver rather than seeing all the mainstream touristy parts. Would 100% recommend these guys to anyone.
Thanks Amber and Alex, you guys are both legends and very down to earth people.

Our tour was over the top!!
Our guide,Simon, was the best you could ask for. He was very informative and a great skipper too.
I have lived in the Vancouver area all of 70 years and I learn a lot about Indian Arm and area. I would recommend to everyone close and far. You will not be disappointed!

Fantastic day yesterday. First time in Vancouver with the family and we got to see this beautiful city from a different perspective. Our tour guide Greg, was funny and informative throughout the whole trip. He made it fun for the kids. We saw many seals and learned about the history of Vancouver and Grandville Island. The water falls were my favourite. Definitely take a sweater at least, the ride can get chilly or take their offer of the wet suit if you wish.
