Absolute rip off. The boat is in very poor condition and in able to see out, the crew actively encourages people to sit on the life vests for cushions. Poor practice for life saving equipment. The tour I am sure would have been nice to...More

Very nice day for our cruise to Gibsons and Bowen Island. Found the boat needed a bit of work. Couldn't see out of the windows and no bathroom on board. Apparently there are major renovations being planned. This should make the boat much more comfortable....More

Very enjoyable trip, lots of great information from Holliday. Nice touch with the goody bag for everyone. Would recommend. Be a tourist in your own city. Be sure to wear comfy shoes as there are lots of places for walking in Gibsons.

I really enjoyed this trip and my friends from Michigan were very impressed! The (2) destinations were wonderful - and seeing so much of the local landscape from the boat was out of this world! I highly recommend this (6) hour tour! Andy

I'd like to echo what the passenger below said. I was on the same tour, and it was HORRIBLE! Honestly, a waste of money ($150 for two on Groupon). We only went to Bowen and took B.C. Ferries back. It was that bad. No windows...More
