Bowen Island Dinner and Zodiac Tour

Highlights

  • Begin at Granville Island on the Vancouver waterfront, where you’ll be fitted with a survival suit that slips right over your dinner attire, and will keep you warm on the water crossing to Bowen Island. Place your order before departing, so dinner will be ready upon arrival at Doc Morgan’s. Board a 30-foot (9-meter), rigid hull zodiac boat that seats up to 12 people, and learn about Granville Island’s history as you navigate out of False Creek. Hear stories about the Burrard Street Bridge, Bard on the Beach, and the Eugenia Building as you follow the shoreline, then pick up speed when you reach open water. Hit 31mph (50kph) while passing Stanley Park, then pause at Siwash Rock to snap photos of the Vancouver landmark. Follow the shoreline towards Point Atkinson, then disembark at Bowen Island—you’ll have one hour to dine at Doc Morgan’s and stroll around Bowen Island’s shops. Return the to boat for a second sightseeing cruise: see Vancouver’s seal colony from the water, then visit the Spanish Banks to see the shipping freighters up close (time permitting). Continue along the south shore of English Bay to Jericho and Kits Beach, and steer back towards the shoreline of Granville Island, where this tour concludes.
