Tour Details

Our custom tour boats are designed for both comfort and sightseeing. Board in Coal Harbour, downtown Vancouver, then cruise by Stanley Park, under the Lion’s Gate bridge, along the West Vancouver shoreline, approach Pt. Atkinson lighthouse and into the breathtaking and scenic Howe Sound before arriving at Gibsons Landing on the Sunshine Coast. Stretch your legs and explore coastal living; bike, kayak, walk, shop for souvenirs or go on a bus tour of this quaint seasside town.

After spending two hours on the Sunshine Coast, we depart for Bowen Island. On route to Bowen we cruise by Keats Island, getting close to Hood Point on the way. Here we dock again for another hour and let the guests experience small island living, enjoy Bowen’s famous ice cream, visit local shops, picnic by the park next to the dock and relax taking in the views. We then depart back to Vancouver where we do a 360 turn for photo opportunities of Stanley Park, the Vancouver Skyline, Canada Place and North Vancouver that you can ONLY get from the water.

We also drop traps to catch The Dungeness and Red Rock crab species found in Howe Sound!  If we are lucky enough to bring up a mature catch we will run a draw for all you seafood lovers, it doesn’t get fresher than that!
