    The team were very knowledgeable and shared in the excitement when we saw a pod of Orcas hunting. It was like a wildlife documentary being played out in front of the boat. The crew photographer emailed the excellent photos to us for no extra charge .
    The whole day was exceptional and a wonderful experience.

    The Harbour Air flight was on time and a neat adventure in itself. Whale watching from the orca spirit zodiac with our guide Mick was amazing! We saw multiple whales and other sea-life. Highly recommend!

    We had a fantastic and wonderful evening aboard the Vancouver Harbour Dinner Cruise. Very well organised from entry, to seating plan, to dinner queue for food. Food was tasty too. All in all a very nice experience

    The entire trip was fun, Capt Paul was full of knowledge and we had a spectacular day. It was great to see Vancouver from a different perspective.

    We enjoyed the tour but it was a bit longer of a day than we had thought. It might just be helpful to include an estimated time of return so any other plans can be accounted for. But overall we enjoyed our guide and seeing Victoria

    This was a great tour to see Vancouver from the water – plus having the fun going at high speeds on the water. Captain Elias was a great guide and very knowledgeable would definitely recommend it.

    Our guide Amy was very friendly, fun and knowledgeable about the city and wildlife we saw. She was easy to hear and led a fantastic tour of English Bay. The boat was comfortable but I do recommend the suits, it’s cold out there! If you’re looking for a fun way to see more of the city you won’t regret booking a tour with these folks.

    Lovely 1 hour ride around the harbour on a steam ferry. Good opportunity to get some great photos of the surrounding views. Nice commentary about the history of Vancouver as you went round.

    Very organized trip. Our guide/driver was awesome, very informative and considerate. One day may be too short for Victoria, but we didn't waste any minutes on the way. I would definitely recommend this one day trip to my friends if they don't have much time to stay. Our driver played the Buthchart Gardens video on the way back, so no need to buy it in the gift store. He also dropped us off to a location closer to our hotel. We really appreciate that especially when we traveled with a kid after a tiring long day. Thank you so much!

    What a perfect start to the Christmas Season and to get into the spirit of Caroling together on a boat.
    A perfect way to experience the Christmas sights & sounds of Vancouver City & harbour from the charmingly lit up Princess Harbour Cruises boat.
    Charming starts with the perfect hostess Josephine who could be or should be a descendant of the original Josephine Baker of yester years...Enchanting.
    The buffel dinner is delicious with a great variety of salads, meats and vegetables. Mashed potatoes “ like mother use to make”. Great friendly & attentive service by the staff.
    The choir of 4 sets the right tone starting at the entrance to set the mood.
    After dinner the 4 singers get everybody to join in caroling together with all other revelers on board. Everybody gets a song book with lyrics to join in.
    A splendid evening spend with like minded merrymakers, making for a Merry Christmas time.

    Had a lot of fun today in Victoria.
    Good communication, the tour guide (Bob) texted me all the details and picked me at my hotel in Downtown. He is very knowledgeable, and he gives the best local tips.

    This was a very enjoyable and tasty day cruising up the Indian Arm. It was fully booked but it was comfortable both inside and on deck, and we never felt packed in. Lunch was organized and delicious. It certainly surpassed other dinner cruise experiences I have done. The hot entree choices were chicken and salmon and both were perfect. We had an absolutely enjoyable trip under the glorious B.C. sunshine. Thank you Harbour Cruises.
