Overview
Swap busy tour buses for a more fun and adventurous form of sightseeing–a Vancouver small-group cruise in an inflatable Zodiac boat. Sail past scenic sights such as Coal Harbour, English Bay, False Creek, and Stanley Park. A perk of this tour is being able to get close to native wildlife by traveling down narrow passages not accessible by large boats.
