5 Boat Charter Options for Scenic Sailing around Vancouver

by Tara Lee in Entertainment , Outside on April 12, 2023

vancouver yacht charters granville island

Photo: Harbour Cruises and Events

Vancouver’s coastal location translates into amazing access to gorgeous boating routes, whether you want to cruise around Burrard Inlet or venture further afield to places such as the Gulf Islands or the Sunshine Coast. With spring and warmer weather here, now’s the time to look into boating options. Boating season in Vancouver usually runs from May until the autumn.

Numerous companies in the city can take care of your boat rental needs—or can cruise you around nearby waterways if you’d prefer to sit back, relax, and sip a glass of bubbly.

Granville Island Boat Rentals

vancouver yacht charters granville island

Photo: Granville Island Boat Rentals

Granville Island Boat Rentals specializes in speed boats for both zippy and leisurely trips on Vancouver waters. Options include an Hourston Glascraft for 4 people, a GT Deluxe for 6 people, and Bayliner Element for 8 people. Suggested routes include a Seal Colony route (roughly 3 hours round trip) with stops at English Bay, Stanley Park, Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver, and Snug Cove on Bowen Island. At Pam Rocks in Howe Sound, you’ll have the chance to see harbour seals, and north of Pam Rocks, you might even see a bald eagle at the National Bird Reserve.

The driver must be 21 years and older and fluent in English, with staff ensuring safety and clear understanding in terms of operating and steering the boat. A free one-day license is provided unless renting a larger 19ft to 21ft boat. Their boating season starts May 1, with online booking now available. From May 1 to June 15, they’re offering a four-hour rental early bird special (one hour free of rental charge) for trips leaving before 9:30am. More information can be found here .

Sewell’s Marina

vancouver yacht charters granville island

Located at Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, Sewell’s Marina is perfectly located for adventures in Howe Sound, as well as trips to the Sunshine Coast and the Gulf Islands. They rent both 17-foot and 21-foot speed boats, with a rental area of Howe Sound (includes scenic landmarks such as Snug Cove on Bowen Island, Anvil Island, and Pam Rocks). The first tank of gas is included. Otherwise, go for a two-hour boat tour (11am, Deep Fjord Tour, 1:30pm Bowen Explorer Tour, 4:30pm Circle Tour) in a 30 ft rigid hull inflatable boat. And finally, Sewell’s Marina also offers fishing expeditions with one of their experienced guides. More information can be found here .  

Pacific Yacht Charters

For cruising in style, consider Pacific Yacht Charters , with a 105-foot-long, three-level vessel. The boat comes with a Skydeck, a foredeck, a dining salon, a main salon, and two full-service bars. Charters are suited to corporate events, private parties, as well as special occasions, such as weddings and anniversaries. The boat can accommodate 120-240 guests, depending on the type of gathering (stand up versus sit-down). Dockside events (up to 400 people) are also possible.

Pacific Yacht Charters will work with you to customize your ideal waterway journey. They suggest three stunning itineraries: the first, “False Creek,” passes key sites such as Coal Harbour, English Bay, Stanley Park, and Kitsilano; the second, “Lighthouse Park, goes to West Vancouver on its way to Point Atkinson to view the 1874 lighthouse; and finally, “Deep Cove” goes from downtown Vancouver to North Vancouver. Event planners will also aid you with catered menu planning, with a wide array of choices, from continental breakfasts to more elaborate buffet meals. More information can be found here .

For something truly unique, ride on Providence , a 80’ LOA class B tall ship. Dating back to 1903, this boat has had a long and proud history as a defense, cargo, and now a charter vessel. In partnership with the Mill Bay Marine Group and the Vancouver Maritime Museum, the company offers opportunity for passenger day sails from the Vancouver Maritime Museum to English Bay and Howe Sound for up to 24 guests. Charters are available for Vancouver and the Gulf Islands (maximum 12 overnight passengers). They can customize the experience to suit your preferences.

The company operates three large charter vessels: the MPV Constitution, the city’s only authentic paddlewheeler, which can accommodate up to 80 passengers; the MV Harbour Princess for 100 or more guests (up to 190 for dinner seating); and the MV Britannia, for 275 maximum for dinner seating.

Granville Island tenants worried about lack of plan to combat rising sea levels

David McCann, whose consultancy has been headquartered on the CMHC-owned land for 30-plus years, said action is required now

Does Granville Island have a long-term future, or will it slip under the sea like a modern-day Atlantis?

One long-time tenant, who said he speaks for many associates with businesses on Granville Island, doesn’t have faith it will have a future unless action is taken now.

“We’re all evaluating our investments on Granville Island,” said David McCann, the owner of problem-solving consultancy Wiifm Management.

Creekhouse , four Granville Island buildings that McCann manages, will leave when its lease expires because of the uncertainty, he said.

Granville Island is a 14-hectare site that was an industrial wasteland in the 1970s before it began its transformation into one of the country’s most-visited tourism spots and cultural hubs.

The site, which tourists are always surprised to discover is not an island, was a sandbar in the Squamish Nation village of Sen̓áḵw before the city of Vancouver began dredging the area in 1915. Fill was added to create the spit of land that exists today.

Only a bit of decking and some riprap protect 340 businesses, which employ more than 3,000 people.

McCann’s concern is that current projections of rising sea levels seriously underestimates how fast sea water will rise, based on the latest information from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change , a UN body, as well as research done in part by an old university friend of his at University of California-Irvine in a report released on Wednesday.

That paper , published by a team of glaciologists who used satellite radar to measure warm sea-water intrusion kilometres below grounded ice in Greenland and Antartica, calls for a reassessment of current projections of how fast sea levels will rise in the coming decades.

“The findings suggest that existing climate models are underestimating the impact of ocean and ice interactions in future sea level rise projections,” it says.

If the research team’s data holds up, sea levels would rise by one metre much sooner than the currently projected 2100, and by more than the half metre projected by 2050. That would mean the historic flooding during a “king high tide” in December 2022, the first in Granville Island’s history, would become common.

Granville Island is managed by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., which last week sent to tenants a brochure titled Coastal Flooding Guide, and a public meeting will be held next week.

The plan, Granville Island general manager Tom Lancaster said, is to bring all interested parties together, including Indigenous nations, three levels of government, and Metro Vancouver.

“For the last 15 years, (experts) have been predicting a one-metre rise over the next 100 years,” Lancaster said. “It’s going to be four or five times (quicker than) that.”

While Canada Mortgage and Housing, a federal Crown corporation, manages Granville Island, the land belongs to the federal government. But Ottawa provides no cash. Money is raised through business leases and paid parking.

“We’ve been doing a bunch of vulnerability studies, what are we at risk of, and we actually have quite a bit of risk over the coming three decades,” Lancaster said. “We’re quite concerned.

“The big thing for us is to put all the parties together in a room and talk about what we’re doing for the False Creek basin because this is where a lot of it is going to be concentrated. We’re going to see a lot of flooding over the next 30 years.”

Whatever the solution, it better happen soon, McCann said.

“According to a United Nations report that came out last year, cities and landowners have two choices — you either abandon it or you defend it,” he said. “There’s no middle ground.”
