Our dock in Coal Harbour is in the heart of downtown Vancouver located close to the cruise ship terminal and the 2010 Olympic Cauldron. Our dock is a 15-minute walk form the iconic Gastown District, Tourism Vancouver, and the downtown shopping district and all the major downtown hotels. This is a beautiful walk that offers a variety of restaurants and pubs along the way.
