What you can expect
Plot your own course and set out on a watery adventure around Vancouver’s Howe Sound. You're in the captain's chair on this self-guided boat tour through the crystalline waters off the coast of British Columbia.
Begin by receiving a fast and informative dockside tutorial on the operation of your 17-foot powerboat before setting off on your course. Once you embark seaward, the ocean is your playground and you decide where the adventure goes. You can blow back your hair as you cut a fast line across the surface or simply float for a moment and snap photos of the snow-capped mountains that line the water’s edge.
Sanctioned wildlife refuges, such as seal colonies and bird sanctuaries, are also worth visiting in the sound. Swoop into a secluded bay and find a cosy spot to cast off and go fishing. With up to 6 people joining you on your boat adventure, you never run out of fun things to do.
