10/10 Would Book Again

Our guide Amy was very friendly, fun and knowledgeable about the city and wildlife we saw. She was easy to hear and led a fantastic tour of English Bay. The boat was comfortable but I do recommend the suits, it’s cold out there! If you’re looking for a fun way to see more of the city you won’t regret booking a tour with these folks.

Well worth it ! We did the 1.5hr tour, perfect length of time. Captain Paul was great. We saw lots of seals up close. Beautiful view of Vancouver from the water side. The only annoying thing was waiting for a group that showed up late. Be respectful and get there half an hour early like the asked us to. Don't say no to the ugly red suits, they kept us warm.
