    What to Expect
    Select a morning or evening start time and head to the base camp at Kitsilano Beach’s north end, where you'll meet your guide and tour group. Get a brief lesson in safety and paddling before launching your kayaks into the sparkling waters of English Bay. (Note: Single or double kayaks are available.)  Designed for beginner kayakers, no technical paddling skills are required.

    Follow your guide into False Creek, an inlet at the heart of Vancouver. As you glide along the urban shoreline — site of the Expo ’86 World’s Fair — view floating homes, bustling marinas, and spot native wildlife like seals, herons, kingfishers and more. You’ll pass under lovely bridges that span the inlet, and view landmarks like Science World, an enormous glass sphere reminiscent of Epcot Center, and BC Stadium. Soak up city tales from your local guide as you loop the inlet. 

    Whether viewing the city in the early morning or in the golden glow of sunset, this tour offers a unique way to see Canada’s great western metropolis. Your 2.5-hour tour concludes back at Kitsilano Beach.
