Loved this trip. Danni was epic. We learnt so much from her. The bald eagle encounter was the highlight along with the scenery.

We had a really enjoyable morning on the city and seals tour with Vancouver Water Adventures despite the rain! We saw a couple of seals, some dolphins and an eagle. Our guide was very knowledgeable and safety conscious. The life jacket all in one suits we were given to put on were excellent as they also kept us warm and dry. Hats, gloves and glasses were also provided if required. I would definitely recommend this trip for a fun morning out.

We were in Vancouver for a Valentine's Day week get-away and really wanted to just get out on the water to see some views and wildlife... all of the whale watching excursions and harbour dinner cruises were closed until at least the warmer weather in May and June so we picked the Granite Falls Zodiac Tour by Vancouver Water Adventures... I used to work year-round out on the water on tugs in nearby Howe Sound and the islands so the available neoprene floater suits to keep us warm were a major "plus" in making the "yes" decision to go on February trip in an open boat up to the North Shore's Indian Arm... we bundled up and suited up and headed out in the super safe Zodiac inflatable boat... our guide did a great job of keeping the ride as smooth as could be by keeping an eye out and quartering the boat wakes, which were really the only chop on an otherwise pretty calm and partially sunny - but very cool on the water - day... the waterfall shown in the Tripadvisor photo is actually Silver Falls, which we saw on the way back and which is closer the the boat and which we would have liked to spend more time enjoying... in that the tour was 3 hours and we really wanted to just be out in nature, we would have preferred to spend less time exploring the commercial and industrial sites, docks and marinas in Vancouver Harbour and spend more time up Indian Arm... we left Indian Arm still being curious to see the Indian River estuary just north of the Wigwam Inn at the north end of Indian Arm... we very much appreciated the land recognition given by our guide that Vancouver and Vancouver Water Adventures is located on and the tour is through the unceded ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations... we thought the guide ought to mention as we departed the False Creek dock area heading out into English Bay that the Vancouver Museum and Planetarium and Vanier Park to the left are all on what was once Kitsilano Reserve No. 6 and that the families were forcibly relocated from their Squamish village of Sen̓áḵw in 1913... we were happy to have the opportunity to be out on the water on a cool February day to see Vancouver from the water and to see the seabirds and eagles and seals and waterfalls in the beautiful forested mountain fjord of Indian Arm and then to come back to the Granville Island Market area for a warm up with a fabulous restaurant meal as a wonderful part of the day... We would take the trip again!... thank you Vancouver Water Adventures!

One of the coolest experiences, even as a solo traveler! I highly recommend this tour with the seals but also any of the other tours offered by Vancouver Water Adventures!

This activity is the one you don’t want to miss when coming in Vancouver for a short trip. We only stayed there for a weekend and this tour gave us the chance to see so many things at once. We took so many pictures of scenic views and we got to see the seals, but also a few bald eagles. Finally, Dani, our guide, was absolutely amazing. She told us all about the different places and their history and was sure to bring us to best spots around the bay. 10/10 experience even out of the regular season, it’s totally worth the trip!

Where to start - the day was looking like it was going to be very wet before we met up in the shop. Paul, our captain and guide for the trip, gave us all the option of a life jacket or the full suits. All chose the suits and I am glad I did as the boat (rigid hull dinghy) had two powerful outboard motors which meant it was fast and the wind felt a lot cooler at speed! The suits kept everyone dry and warm.
Paul gave an initial briefing of what to expect but also gave a knowledgeable talk around the ocean and ecosystem of the area. I learnt a lot in a very short space especially kelp beds and how much C02 they process (more than the rain forests!)
Earlier in the day there were humpback whales in the area which heightened everyone's excitement, unfortunately we did not spot any.
On the trundle out of the harbour Paul gave lots of interesting facts and cruising along to West Vancouver coast pointed out Will Smith's and also Robert De Niros houses.
There was also some history thrown in regarding the Spanish and English deciding who would take what land.
WE then went out past the lighthouse to an island (Seal Island?) where the seals were sitting on a relatively small rock, very nice to see them in their natural habitat along with thousands of sea skimming birds who took off as we approached. I believe that the fissure / gulley we entered is one of the most southern fjords in the Northern Hemisphere.
On the way back we pulled up next to one of the many massive tankers awaiting their turn to enter port.
Definitely worth the trip and if you get Paul, you are in for an informative treat.

Had such an amazing time, and such a great captain! I was worried that because it was overcast that we wouldn’t be able to see as much but it was still stunning!! I’m so glad I went and I learned so much as it was my first visit to Vancouver!

Great experience to see the city from a totally different vantage point. Our captain Jasper had a lot of information through the whole tour of Vancouver and West Vancouver

This was a fun trip that looks at Vancouver, Stanley Park and the seal colony etc. from the water.

Lots of useful facts and information from Danni who captained the boat. A recommended trip
