Vancouver is a city shaped by its over 58 kilometers of waterfront. From the industrial Port lands in the Burrard inlet to the Fraser River there is an abundant variety of activities. The Seawall that snakes around downtown and Stanley Park connecting all of our beautiful beaches, the log booms, marinas and small streams that punctuate the shoreline  display how much our city is linked to the waterfront in some form.

This weekend, expect to see crowds celebrating the waterfront at the Vancouver Maritime Museum. Expect a full day of great activities that will explore the waterfront, including guided boat tours, cycle tours, kayaking and First Nations canoe tours, bird walks and art workshops.
