ITINERARY

This is a fun full day tour for families with younger kids and just kids at heart! You’ll love the easy paced day and fun places to explore and capture memories for your photo album. Have you ever fed a real peacock? Or seen a sleeping giant? Ever visited a real castle or see a real house floating on the Ocean? This tour includes a picnic lunch on the beach or a cafe with a view of the sailboats. There are lots of places for the little ones to burn off their energy, laugh and giggle.

Stop 1: Voyage on a Harbour Ferry to Fisherman’s Wharf for a stroll around the gem-colored float homes and perhaps indulge in the best fish and chips you’ve ever had.

Stop 2: Thunderbird Park to see a fantastic cluster of Totem poles representing many West Coast First Nations people. What stories do they tell?
