This Dinner Cruise is well worth the money! We had a very enjoyable evening, beautiful scenery, and very helpful and attentive staff. The other thing that I would like to note is the entertainment: simple guitar and drum duo, the singer had a killer voice - and it was not overwhelming. Would do again!

Charming. Great way to spend an evening. The sights from the water are spectacular. Captain and crew were excellent and the music grand. Very unique way to view Vancouver.

Was awesome. Way more then I expected. Would do it again in a heartbeat. I’ve already recommended it to friends and family. Thank you
