There isn’t really anything to look forward to on a Monday, except on this particular Monday, I signed up for the Harbour dinner cruise!
The Harbour cruise is located close to Denman Street near Stanley Park. They have different types of boat cruises, usually categorized as either sightseeing or dinner cruises.
The most common type is the sightseeing tour and it costs $34.95 (May 2016) for a fully narrated hour tour around the Burrard Inlet. It would be quite good if you just want to relax and not be stuck in traffic.
The one I went to was the dinner cruise, which includes live music and a buffet dinner. There are two floors and the first floor have small private tables whereas the top floor has longer tables for more guests. However, it’s probably just in the set up and how many people they are expected on that day.
There is also a top deck for sightseeing.
The boat departs from the pier at Denman St. and goes around Stanley park, under the lions gate bridge and passing all the attractions along the seawall. It continues along English Bay and Sunset Beach and along the way, we picked up some paddle boarders wanting to pick up some wave.
The passage gets a bit more narrow as we reached the end of the waters near Science World and we turned back, stopping all the dragon boaters as they paddle.
We had the dinner midway through the travels, and it is the usual salad, rice, and some roast beef and salmon.
For dessert, there were cakes and fruits. They can certainly have more fruits on their platter though, by the time we got our dessert, all the slices of watermelons were gone.
Anyways, I spent more time outside the boat …
… and we return home.
