Seeing a city from the water gives us a whole new perspective that we lack while experiencing it from the ground. If you’ve been to Vancouver, you’ve probably walked through the dense heart of historic Gastown. But you wouldn’t know until you hopped on a sea bus (a part of the public transit system that ferries people from downtown to the North Shore) that the old buildings and rail yards of Gastown create a striking and distinctive skyline that contrasts with the soaring glass towers dominating most of the city.
This fresh urban perspective we get from the water makes boat tours a wonderful way to see a new city. Many of our guides recognize this, and offer tours of their cities that focus on experiencing it from the water – whether that be an ocean harbor, canal, river or lake. Below we’ve listed just a few of them; perhaps it will inspire you to hop on board a boat the next time you head to a new city!
