Boat captains must master nautical lexicon before sailing the seas to ensure that they can distinguish port, which means left, from starboard, which means launch the vessel into deep space. Count down to a sea launch with this Groupon.
C$35 for Harbour Tour for Two Adults (Up to C$69.90 Value)
Fully narrated tours spend roughly one hour exploring the Burrard Inlet, treating passengers to seaside views of Vancouver. Sights include landmarks such as Stanley Park and historic Gastown, the North Shore Mountains, and the city skyline. While onboard, seafarers enjoy sips from the fully licensed bar in the cabin (not included in this Groupon) or collect some sunrays and practice fish calls on the open-air deck.
Harbour Cruises & Events
Harbour Cruises & Events has ferried aquanauts across the waters of Vancouver Harbour for more than a century, elucidating the city's history and granting seldom-seen views of the skyline. On the MPV Constitution, one of Vancouver's only authentic paddlewheelers, guests can enjoy views of the city on the open-air deck, or below on the A and B decks where the luxuries of a fine-dining restaurant take to sea. The Sunset dinner cruise and the Indian Arm luncheon cruise, departing from headquarters at 501 Denman Street in Vancouver, make use of such fine settings to create floating meals of beef bordelaise and fresh British Columbian salmon accompanied by live music. Fireworks cruises, also departing from headquarters, celebrate the waning of summer with a buffet dinner and live DJ, letting couples get close and practice their breakdancing moves when everyone else is looking to the sky. All cruises sail out from headquarters at 501 Denman Street.
