Captain Raphael was very friendly and informative. We saw many beautiful and unique sights that Raphael enjoyed informing us on as we cruised by. This tour is 100% worth every dollar and would recommend it to anyone wanting to see the area from a different perspective.

SEA VAN 90 minute cruise was great, and the hottest day in Vanvouver's history felt like a nice 22°C. Raphael was not only funny but he also had a ton of interesting facts about Vancouver which I never knew, and I'm from Vancouver. It was a great outing before our dinner, and was absolutely gorgeous out. Really enjoyed it, and the price is pretty unreal. I'll be doing this again very soon and I recommend this SEA VAN tour to anyone. It is also a great way to get a feel for where to go as well as a good example of boat safety before renting a boat.

For all you boat renters out there, do this first!

First things first this was our first time on the West Coast, and specifically in Vancouver! This activity was absolutely amazing. Not to mention, our excellent captain/skipper Jeremy was super enthusiastic, funny and intriguing. He did an excellent job keeping the environment light and fun while keeping it super informative (I.e., the huge yellow pile is sulfur). With that said, we (Ontarioans & Quebecers) highly recommend the Sea Vancouver Tour!

Ask for Captain Raphael and he will give you the most amazing tour of Vancouver! Whether you are a local, touring your own city or an out-of-towner visiting for your first time, there will be new and fascinating information that you will learn on this tour. We had a blast going around Stanley Park and up the Indian Arm. Beautiful scenery and animal sights the whole way through. I will definitely recommend this tour to anybody who is looking for an adventure around the Vancouver area.

I recently came back from vacation in Vancouver with my boyfriend. We saw this on trip advisor and ended up going on one of our last evenings there. I would highly recommend taking this tour at your first opportunity. You will be more well informed of all Vancouver has to offer you on your vacation. You board at granville island which is a beautiful market and area itself. On our tour, our tour guide Raphael was incredibly friendly and knowledgable about Vancouver and all the surrounding areas. He offered so much insight and candid reviews of other experiences and things to do while you're there. He made the whole experience so fun and welcoming. He made the effort to memorize everyones name on the boat and even took pictures of each group which he sent out very promptly. One of the best experiences of our trip! Thank you Raphael!

The Sea Vancouver Tour led by Raphael was a wonderful way to explore Vancouver from the ocean. For those wondering if travel to the West Coast is safe, the boat was clean and lifeboats were sanitized. The speed of the Kodiak added a sense of fun, and Raphael’s detailed knowledge of the history of the area was outstanding. The one and a half hour tour was highly entertaining for the whole family!

We did a 90-min boat tour with Cpt. Raphael.
What a great 90-min it was, Raphael has a great back story himself, he was a great speaker and he really brought the tour to life. He was also a damn good boat captain

This is an absolute must-do for any first time visitor to this amazing and beautiful province of British Columbia. If you want a safe, exciting but very fun and informative experience during your visit, do yourself a massive favour and book the Sea Vancouver Tour.

Our tour guide Raphael was absolutely amazing. He was enthusiastic, prioritized the safety of his passengers, and demonstrated genuine interest and connections to the city of Vancouver that really came through as he shared all the great information and history of Vancouver. Thank you Raphael.

Brilliant way to see Vancouver from a different perspective. We joined the 90minute harbour tour and it was fantastic. We learnt so much about Vancouver itself but also places a little further afield, and the city does look different from the water. Tour goes around Stanley Park, into Vancouver Harbour, across close to North Vancouver and back around through harbour and Stanley Park and back to Granville Islans by English Bay. Loved getting to see all the sea planes taking off too. Our guide Raphael was great, so enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, and kept everyone engaged throughout, and very kindly took some pictures of the tour and shared them afterwards. Great that it's a small tour, max of 12 people. Was very glad of the red suits, might not be that stylish but they were so warm and cosy which was very welcome out on the water!! Thanks for a fantastic tour, thoroughly enjoyed it and glad we stumbled across it.
