What You Can Expect

Start your Vancouver half-day shore excursion with a drive over the Lion’s Gate Bridge, a 5,890-foot (1,823-meter) suspension bridge that offers unparalleled views of the Vancouver harbor, and beyond. Once you get across to the North Shore, it is a short drive up the mountain to the Capilano Fish Hatchery (post-cruise departure only). Learn about the life cycle of salmon and watch them (in season – July and August) as they leap their way upriver.

Next, head to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Meander among the towering trees of this temperate rainforest and learn the traditions of the indigenous First Nations’ peoples. Then walk across the 446-foot (136-meter) bridge to the other side of the river, where you can climb to the canopy and stroll through the Treetops Adventure walkway high above the canyon and river below. For those seeking a more thrilling adventure, try Clifffwalk, the newest attraction at this park. This heart-quickening journey will take you through the rainforest on a series of suspended walkways jutting out from the granite cliff face to unexplored territories of the park.

At the Grouse Mountain Skyride, take the tram to a 3,937-foot (1,200-meter) viewpoint above the city and enjoy nature’s spectacular view. In the summertime, amble along the mountaintop meadows and take-in the outdoor entertainment. Get up close to grizzly bears with only a thin wire fence between you and them. On top of this beautiful mountain on a clear day, you can see Mount Baker and Vancouver Island off British Columbia’s coast.

For pre-cruise tours, you’ll be driven to your cruise ship terminal, where you and your bags will board your ship.

Excellent North Shore tour to see the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Park, thoroughly enjoyed it! The view from the tram up to Grouse Mountain was stunning and we enjoyed seeing the Grizzly Bears that live at the top! The tour guide promptly dropped us off for our cruise and it was so wonderful to just walk onboard the ship since our luggage had already been taken to the ship earlier when they picked us up. Great organization by the tour company and we highly recommend a pre or post cruise tour.

This excursion was wonderful! Our driver, Gina from Landsea Tours was funny and very knowledgeable about Vancouver. We went to a fish hatchery, the Capilano Suspension Bridge, and Grouse Mountain. We were picked up at the cruise port and dropped at our hotel after the tour. I highly recommend this tour for cruise passengers who plan to stay in Vancouver after their cruise. It really helped us make the most of our first day in Vancouver!

The tour was fantastic. We arrived at the pick up point an hour early since we just departed the ship, and they agreed to start the tour early. Sara, our tour guide, was great. We got a brief tour of the city and Stanley Park on our way to our scheduled stops and ended with a full 7 hour tour.

Land Sea tours is amazing. You travel with a small group of folks, there were 14 of us and our driver/guide Brent was amazing. We were picked up ahead of time from our cruise. The trip to Capilano Park/fisher and Grouse Mountain were amazing. We had plenty of time at each place to take our time and visit the area.
