  • 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 harbor, English Bay and beyond. Once you get across 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. 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 the bridge. This heart-stopping 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 witness the Logging Sports show. 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.

Tour started off with driver being prompt and we soon learned that he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He explained what we were going to see and what to expect at each stop. We were shown the salmon hatchery, no salmon were jumping that day but we still learned about the different types of salmon. We went to Grouse Mountain and thoroughly enjoyed everything it had to offer. The bears were showing off and moving to different areas of their enclosure. The lumberjack show was fun as well as informative and the huge carvings were beautiful. We then went to the Capilano Suspension bridge. Even though a little scary if you don't like heights, it is an amazing place. Every child's dream of a tree house is available to research and even with many people around, it still feels like you are alone with nature. The tour ended with our driver delivering us at our hotel. I think the tour was worth every penny spent. Being picked up at the ship and being delivered to our hotel was a great way to end our cruise.
