My Vancouver Adventure
Part of what I do as a travel blogger, I feel it is important for me to travel at least once a year across my own country, Canada. A country full of raw , natural beauty. This is what I did again this year, I chose Vancouver !
Before every trip I make an itinerary to plan my travels but keep space for spontaneity and usually spontaneity precedes.
Vancouver City and Seal Tour
Instead of the typical Hop on Hop Off tour , I decided to take a tour that was different & exciting ! The City and Seal Tour with a Zodiac !
Now, if someone knows me well enough, you will understand I am not a fan of water, petrified !! I am not the greatest swimmer ; yet I have always encouraged my readers to face our fears and be brave in your quest of life, whatever sets your soul on fire, always go with a fearless & open heart !
And this applies also to me. Trust me, although I travel solo, I still have fears to face and crush. Water is 1 of them. I decided to take it regardless of “stupid” fears! I did have some doubt after signing a waiver explaining ” in any event of water activity , there is always a risk of getting hurt resulting in risking your health and getting paralyzed !!!! WHAT ???
What did I get myself into ?
Honestly , it is and feels really safe. Before getting on the Zodiac you get yourself in these safe air float red suits ! Dylan , our guide, provides you some safety information and then you are off !!
This zodiac tour has been so much fun and your will never forget such an experience. It is a 1.5 hrs tour guided by our guide Dylan. Dylan was so friendly and informative , he left a positive impression on all of us !
We saw the most iconic spots of Vancouver like Stanley Park, Lion Gate’s Bridge, the homes of the rich and famous . My favourite was the seal colony ! Everything was just fantastic!
You can book this tour either online or you can go to Gransville and purchase your ticket there. I will write about Gransville on my next post.
The tour is approximately 60$ , a ride full of great information on Vancouver and full of adventures on the Zodiac. In case someone doesn’t know what a Zodiac boat is , I can explain.
They come in many shapes & sizes but the most common component is that’s inflatable but really great to float on waters. Although not as fast as a speedboat, Dylan made it the most fun especially guiding the Zodiac on a curve ! I did silently screech but I really enjoyed this tour!
Here are some of the pictures I took while touring !
If you want something fun and adventurous thing to do in Vancouver, I strongly recommend this one.
This tour was NOT hosted so all opinions and reviews are all my own and honest, as usual.
So happy you had a great time!!
