Zodiac Sightseeing with Fastboat Adventures

Fast Boat Adventures
A new company from Vancouver Whale Watch, Fastboat Adventures, is offering up high-octane sightseeing for those who want a little thrill with their tour of the sights. With two tours by 12-seater zodiacs, Fastboat Adventures will whiz guests by water around the city sights, or up Indian Arm for a different perspective on the city and the wilderness that surrounds it. I recently had the opportunity to take the Indian Arm adventure, and it was definitely my kind of tour!

Donning bright red life saver suites, we met our captain and naturalist and boarded the boat, and we were off. We cruised down Coal Harbour, passed the float planes and newly expanded convention centre, chased after a cruise ship departing Canada Place, and headed to the wilderness.Fast Boat Adventures
Notable highlights were spotting seals (including a mom and cub we got really close to), discovering thousands of jellyfish by the powerhouse at Buntzen Lake (apparently they love the mix of fresh water and saline), getting within arm’s length of a waterfall, and coming back to the city under a beautiful sunset.Fast Boat AdventuresFast Boat Adventures
It was a great way to get an appreciation of Metro Vancouver by water, and I’m sure the city tour is just as exhilarating. Who doesn’t like to go fast?Fast Boat Adventures
