Hop on a Scenic Harbour Cruise!

If you’re ready to embark in a scenic little adventure to view Vancouver from a different perspective, stroll over to Harbour Cruises located at the foot of Denman St., just steps away from Lord Stanley Suites! Take the one hour harbour tour (inside Burrard Inlet) on the MPV Constitution: you’ll get the opportunity to see many highly rated attractions which you can view comfortably either up top on the observation deck or below deck inside the cabin.

As you pull away from the dock, get your camera ready to capture some sweeping vistas of Stanley Park & the Vancouver Rowing Club as well as the city skyline at Coal Harbour and its marina. From there, the tour will cruise by the Port of Vancouver, (which is the busiest port in Canada) where you can see container ships unload their cargo. The next point of interest is North Vancouver, where you’ll see the North Shore Mountains, Lonsdale Quay and you may even get a glimpse of Greenpeace’s vessel moored along the dock. Heading back, get a stunning view of the entire span of the Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park’s Seawall and finally, the skyline of downtown Vancouver. All this plus incredibly engaging colour commentary, too; prepare to be wowed by the spectacular scenery on the water!
