Discover the beauty of Vancouver’s city skyline and stunning shoreline on a family-friendly, morning kayaking tour departing from Kitsilano Beach. Led by an expert, you’ll enjoy a 2.5-hour sightseeing tour of Vancouver’s most interesting sights.
An early morning guided kayaking tour of Vancouver’s English Bay is the perfect way to experience the city’s stunning skyline and shoreline!
Following a brief lesson in paddling and safety from your expert guide, you’ll depart from Kitsilano Beach at 9:00am and paddle into English Bay towards False Creek, an inlet at the heart of Vancouver. At this time of day, the water is at its calmest and there is less boat traffic on the water.
Your guide will recount to you Vancouver’s history while updating you on some the newest most interesting ventures in the City. He/she will put names to buildings as they point out the most popular sights along the skyline. You’ll pass under lovely bridges that span the inlet, and view landmarks like Science World, an enormous glass sphere reminiscent of Epcot Center, and BC Stadium. You’ll see the floating houseboats as they bob gently in the water, rocking their inhabitants in a relaxing manner. Watch for native wildlife like seals, herons, kingfishers and more. Your 2.5-hour kayaking tour ends back at Kitsilano Beach.
