We had a very nice afternoon when we went on the excursion “City and Seal Boat Tour”. The tourguide learned us a lot about Vancouver and it’s surroundings, the ride was funny, and we saw a lot of interesting places on the coastline, including seales. The only thing I missed was a suite in my size. Had to take a ripped one because there were no others left.

well organized, on-time, fun ride, our guide made a few stops along the trip and was informative about the history and knowledge of the surrounding areas, coupled with a great sense of humour that made the whole experience so much more fun. Would definitely recommend for locals and out-of-town visitors !!

Simon, Crystal and Milk was very excellent guides. They were very informative and kept the group interactive. They made sure everyone was safe and had enough time for everyone to enjoy the experience on being out in the water. At no point did I felt rushed or unorganized. Highly recommend
