Friendly, funny, professional and helpful guides Mike and Chris took us out on a great 2 hour "Ocean is yours" Jetski tour. Exceeded my expectations. It was fun as we get to learn, see, and feel the English Bay and Howe Sound area on the ski's. The ski's were powerful and easy to maneuver. Will certainly come back again!! Thanks!

I think we were spoiled. Ryan, our guide, is a master with the Zodiac, knowledgeable, and fun! The overall experience was one of the best things I've done, anywhere. From an informative tour of Vancouver's harbour through a scenic run up the Indian Arm, Vancouver Water Adventures delivers an experience that is both breathtaking for beauty and exhilarating for the...

My Fiance and I booked the tandem 2.5 hour jet ski tour this past weekend (May 22nd, 2017). We are locals and thought it would be fun to try some of the touristy things our home has to offer. It was my first time using a jet ski so I was a little nervous; however, once we were out on... More

We were in Vancouver for a family wedding and decided to all go on the boat tour with Vancouver water adventures. What a great time! Clay, Jess and Faith were knowledgeable and entertaining for the whole afternoon and evening, told us many things none of us knew about the area. And did not know how lovely that area of Vancouver...

What a great time we had on our tour. We are locals so the sights weren't new to us, but the ride in the Zodiac was fun and informative, Our guide Andrew stopped at lots of places to give us facts & history and often a joke or two. He was a BIG part of making the trip so enjoyable!!

Three of us did the Granite Falls Boat tour - 3 hours on an open Zodiac really gives you beautiful views of this breathtaking city. We felt very safe throughout the trip, and we were suited up in orange safety suits which ensured that we weren't cold in the exposed boat. Three hours was a perfect time for this tour,... More

We chose the Ocean Is Yours and it was awesome. Magnificent views, getting close to the seals was amazing and our excellent guide Mike made the whole thing even more enjoyable with his great sense of humor! Great way to spend a Saturday morning. Top class stuff, highly recommend!

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
