Cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise the blue in comfort with this Groupon.

Sunset dinner cruises set sail Fridays and Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. Passengers dine on British Columbia salmon in a lemon-dill sauce or barbecued chicken breast in a garlic-teriyaki glaze, with fresh salad, steamed vegetables, and tortellini marinara to complement the meal. The cruise ventures alongside Granville island, the beaches of Stanley Park, the Burrard Inlet, and Point Atkinson to grant glimpses of million-dollar homes, majestic wildlife, and the Vancouver skyline.
For a holiday celebration on the water, Christmas carol cruises embark Sundays at 6 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. during the entire month of December. A traditional Christmas-dinner buffet lets passengers get their fill of roast turkey, honey-glazed ham, stuffing, and a bounty of vegetables and other sides, and culminates with a slice of triple-chocolate cake. After dinner, holiday music and a Christmas singalong get passengers in a festive spirit before dazzling their eyes with the sights of the Carol Ships Parade of Lights, along with colourfully lit buildings along Vancouver Harbour, Granville Island, and False Creek.
Accent Cruises is located directly below the Public Market, in a blue-and-yellow floating office next to the ferry dock ramp.
As the sun sinks below the English Bay, the lights of downtown Vancouver flicker on. Accent Cruises’ fleet of yachts provide panoramic views of this crepuscular splendour as they glide past Burrard Inlet, Point Atkinson, and Whytecliff Park during private and public charters. The event planners at Accent Cruises strive to match the opulent backdrop of international ocean freighters and coastal mansions with equally lavish cruises. A resident chef prepares B.C. salmon and garlic teriyaki chicken during the dinner cruise, which departs 2-6 nights a week, and 200 party guests can carouse on the M.V. Burrard Queen's deck for private charters. Vessels come with stereo systems, fully stocked bars, and at least one passenger who used to be a class clown, further enlivening cruises.
