Day 02: Vancouver - Granville Island
After breakfast proceed to the foot of Stanley Park to rent bicycles and cycle to the seawall and into the park. This is Vancouver’s most popular green space and at 400 hectares. Take a photo-stops at places such as the totem poles, Prospect Point lookout, and the beaches. Continue along the seawall past scenic English Bay, then head over the bridge to Granville Island. Park your bikes and stroll the island’s streets, exploring the many galleries, theatres, studios, and workshops. Later after lunch proceed to Ecomarine Paddlesports Centre to take your summer adventure to the water. They offer tours, lessons, and straight rentals of both kayaks and paddleboards, and can accommodate everyone from absolute beginners to advanced experts. Later head back over to the downtown peninsula aboard a False Creek or Aquabus ferry to Yaletown, and then ride back to your bike rental shop via the seawall. Make the short walk over to the marina in Coal Harbour in time for an early evening Sea Vancouver tour. These are fast, fun zodiac tours of the waters around the downtown peninsula which takes you towards the North Shore, under the Lions Gate Bridge, around Stanley Park, and down False Creek. Overnight at Vancouver.
