    Good tour, good value
    A very informative one hour sightseeing tour of Vancouver harbour. Our initial booking was cancelled by the operator but they accommodated us on a sailing the next day. Lots of outdoor space on the vessel for photo opportunities. The audio could be improved as it was often difficult to hear the guide on an upper deck.

    It was disappointing.
    It would have been appreciated if you had confirmed with us before setting out. We were only two minutes late. Not only we have missed the tour we have been looking to, we also lost the fee! At least we should be compensated. "Sorry" said by the unwelcoming faces was more disappointing!

    Relaxing lunch cruise
    This was a lovely trip out, into the Indian Arm, past Deep Cove to Silver Springs Waterfall. The scenery was spectacular, with lots of photo opportunities. The boat was skilfully manoeuvred into the side so we could get close to the waterfall, although it was not fully flowing because of the dry weather. My Husband's not got the best sea-legs but he was fine on this trip. The lunch was very nice: chicken or salmon, which was served to your plate on the buffet, but everything else you helped your self to: potato salad, green salad, rice salad, a range of bread rolls. Followed by a choice of pies. Refills of tea and coffee and water, with a well stocked bar if you so desired. The cruise leaves at 11.00 am, but you need to be ready to board at 10.30 am.

    Great, smooth trip seeing so many sites
    Such a great sightseeing trip. The boat was very clean and did a smooth trip. I get seasick very easy and did not get sick during this trip. The announcer did a great job talking about all of the sites as we came up to them and giving a lot of background information. He also had a lot of dad jokes, which I found very funny. The 1 hour trip was just perfect in timing. Definitely a great trip, and we'll probably do it again next time we are in the area.

    Great Experience
    It was a very worthwhile trip. The tour narrator did a great job explaining the history and the current operations of the various areas all around the harbor. Definitely recommend.

    Good short trip around the harbour
    Really good way to spend an hour getting your bearings around Vancouver. The boat was comfortable and spacious… you didn’t feel crammed in. Lovely trip around Vancouver harbour, good commentary and facts given. Really enjoyed it.

    An introduction to the Vancouver area
    The cruise was relatively short. It did impart a bit of the history of the Vancouver region and gave me a good overview of the geography of the area. They gave information on other things to do in British Columbia.

    Beautiful British Columbia
    It was a wonderful experience. The crew took great care of us during the cruise and were ver knowledgeable about the area. The food was wonderful and the Captian did a great job positioning the ship to see the waterfall. I would take this cruise again with family or friends.

Really neat 2-hour cruise! The staff was courteous and helpful, the musicians were very good, and the fellow cruisers were gregarious!

We were able to stand on the top deck and observe the shoreline and seawall as we passed under the bridges. On the return to the dock, the captain was very mindful of allowing us time to view the sun setting over the mountains.

The dinner cruise on The Constitution paddlewheel was a perfect way to view the harbor and sights of Vancouver. Each deck and the bow afforded a different perspective of the bridges, the shoreline and of course, the lights of the city. Good food, good drinks and the warmth and friendliness of the staff made the experience marvelous and memorable.

Very nice evening cruise with excellent food. They were a little understaffed at the bar area and would not allow you to purchase your own drinks. With one person trying to serve our entire deck floor, she did the best that she could. Perhaps it was that we were not purchasing liquor...

This was a fun excursion that everyone (from our 13 year old to our 86 year old) enjoyed. I was expecting a nice boat trip with some food. I was so surprised when the food was truly delicious. We had wine and enjoyed a lovely evening.

We experienced unusually hot temperatures. Being in the corner of the lower level of the boat without a window nearby was uncomfortable, but we went up too several times to cool off and enjoy the view. I’m guessing that in normal weather, the lower level would be cosy.

Wonderful relaxed evening with attentive staff from the person greeting us as we came aboard, to the serving staff and then the fellow who offered us a mint as we came ashore. After months of poor service with the "Covid excuse" it is refreshing and much appreciated to receive great service.

The ship offered a number of areas outside on the decks and we never felt crowded. The live music was lovely and the buffet plentiful and tasty. Of course, the great weather helped make this a memorable evening!

It was a terrible experience. They are not coordinated at all. After confirming and DOUBLE checking about the cruise being pet friendly, they did not allow my pet on the cruise and ruined my family trip, and we could not get to the cruise. The operator was clueless. She sold in the Canadian dollar and charged us in US dollars.

The food was good. The service was great. There were beautiful views. But I was expecting it to be a little more intimate. We were there to celebrate our anniversary but it was too loud to really carry on a conversation without raising our voices. Overall it was a good experience just not for our anniversary dinner.

This was an amazing experience, especially since it was a solo trip. The crew was really nice, the food was good (although the salmon could have used some seasoning), and the views were absolutely amazing. You meet people from all over the world who are visiting plus locals, it was just a great experience for me. I definitely recommend this trip!

It is what it is. The food, beverages, and service were better than a lot of booze cruises I've been on—but if you don't mind mediocre buffet food (over-cooked roast beef, dry salmon) and limited bar selection, it was a pleasant cruise. The wait staff were very nice. And the cruise got in all the sites around Vancouver bays. There was a live band playing soft rock classics. Being a solo traveler, I could have done without the music. But many of the couples got up an danced.

This was much nicer than I had expected. The boat was NOT the paddle boat pictured, but a much nicer newer three deck ship. Very comfortable! The quality food was very good with a good choice of menu items. They sat us with another lovely couple at a 6 seat table (all were like this) so it gave you plenty of room as you get up frequently. The route took as all around Vancouver from the Harbour, under the Lions Gate Bridge and up False Creek as far as it could go then back again. Very scenic with a gorgeous sunset! Highly recommended!
