Here it is, August 2021 and a harbor cruise was high on our list of things we wanted to do as this would have been an awesome tour to make of Coal Harbor!

But we will have to wait for 2022 and see if they will resume operations. We wish them well and much success with their efforts to regroup and rethink operations in the future.

We stumbled upon this electric boat and toured the harbor and it was a fantastic adventure. We got to see the city from the water and learn about the key locations. Spencer was our guide and it was certainly a highlight of our trip to Vancouver.

Spencer was "so awesome and genuine" according to my husband. I enjoyed his deep, local understanding to a city in which we were tourists. There was not a question for which Spencer did not have a great answer. Would take this tour again!!!

We had a great experience with this boat outing. The electric boat was silent, which made the entire journey very tranquil and peaceful - the tour guide spoke in a normal tone the entire time. The boat was very clean and comfortable. We got to see the harbor front of Gastown and Coal Harbour. Most interesting was that we crossed the seaplane runway used by commuters and tourists. It’s fun to watch them take off and land on water up close. Our Captain/Tour Guide - Irwin - was a cross between a sea captain and college professor. He shared a wealth of local knowledge with us, including folklore from aboriginal tribes and history of this beautiful city. We also had a chance to chat with the business owner/manager who is a genuinely nice person, which made the trip that much more memorable. I highly recommend this tour, and wlll definitely do it again when I return to Vancouver.

My wife and I on our last full day in Vancouver (September 10 - 2019) took the wee 'Duffy' boat trip in Vancouver.
Our driver/pilot was Irwin.
My wife and I are from Glasgow, Scotland and loved this wee boat trip.
Irwin was full of local knowledge which we found very interesting. Irwin was softly spoken and has a great personality and I found him easy to talk to.
There was also a couple from Mexico City and a couple from Leeds, England on the trip and they also enjoyed the relaxing 40 minutes or so.
I'd recommend this boat trip if you're looking to pass a little time and to relax a little.

Had a great time on the boat and learned a lot about the harbour and the surrounding areas. Great for everyone from children to seniors and everyone in between. Even nice for locals as a relaxing hour.

Enjoyed Beth on the harbor tour. Enjoyed the city from a different view. Boat was comfortable. It was a great way to spend an hour on a very beautiful day in Vancouver. Since the season was slowing down, they were even offering a discount of ticket price. Enjoy!!
