Granite Falls Zodiac Tour

Where:Vancouver, British Columbia
Price for:1 Participant
Discover Vancouver’s incredible waterfront wonders on the 3-hour Granite Falls zodiac boat tour from Granville Island. You’ll travel through Vancouver Harbour and into Deep Cove and the glacial fjord of the Indian Arm where views of the granite cliffs can only be seen by boat.
Enjoy a scenic sightseeing tour of Vancouver’s coastline.

Your adventure begins at Granville Island where you’ll hop aboard a zodiac boat. You’ll get geared up in a survival suit and your guide will share stories about the history of Granville Island, the Burrard Street Bridge, the Eugenia Building, Bard on the Beach and more.

Once you’ve passed False Creek, your zodiac will pick up speed to around 40-50 km/h and follow the shore along Stanley Park.  At Siwash rock, an outcrop near the Lion’s Gate Bridge and Third Beach, you’ll have a chance to get out, and learn about this unique natural formation and take some pictures. 

Your tour continues exploring Vancouver Harbour and you’ll learn about Seaspan, Canada Place, Lion’s Gate Bridge and more. Your zodiac will sail past Ironworkers Bridge towards Deep Cove and you’ll enter the glacial fjord of Indian Arm. This area, lined with granite cliff faces, is only accessible by boat and is surrounded by untouched, natural British Columbian forests.

You’ll be able to admire the cascade of Granite Falls  and Silver Falls from the zodiac, followed by a brief stop at the north end of Indian Arm.

On the way back to Granville Island, you’ll follow the same route taking in views of Stanley Park, Coal Harbour, the English Pile, the Twin Islands, English Bay Beach, Racoon Island, Buntzen Powerhouse and more.

From the towering container ships amid stunning city views to seals at play, the Granite Falls Zodiac Tour is the perfect way to enjoy a summer day.
