Post Cruise North Shore Capilano and Grouse Mountain Tour

If you are disembarking your cruise ship in Vancouver and have the day free, take some time to explore Vancouver's North Shore and enjoy a day full of adventure while in this scenic region surrounding the city. Visit the Capilano Fish Hatchery and learn about the interesting life cycle of the Pacific Salmon. Travel to great heights above Vancouver while exploring Grouse Mountain. Also, visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge and enjoy the many treetop trails and cliff walks that await you.

Begin your tour with a slow drive over the Lion's Gate Bridge, which spans the entrance to Vancouver's port. The bridge offers unparalleled views of the harbor and English Bay beyond. Once across to the North Shore, head to the Capilano Suspension Bridge park. Trek along the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which is raised 230 feet above the Capilano River and crosses a span of 450 feet. Enjoy the park's Treetop Adventures and venture across a series of elevated suspension bridges, while walking among magnificent Douglas fir trees that cover the forest floor. While on your North Shore tour in Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, brave the Cliff Walk. Suspended walkways meander through rainforest vegetation and jut out from granite cliffs. Many of the high, narrow walkways feature glass floors, which are all that separate you from the magnificent canyons hundreds of feet below.

Continue to your next stop at the Capilano Fish Hatchery. Wonder at nature's incredible ability to sustain itself as you are shown how salmon are helped through man's intrusion on their habitat. Learn about their life cycle and watch them as they leap their way upriver and through the glassed-in fish ladder.

Next, you will ascend 3,700 feet above Vancouver as you ride up the Grouse Mountain Skyride. From this impressive height, view the city, the Pacific Ocean, and the Gulf Islands below as they get smaller and smaller as you ride higher and higher up the mountain. Once at the top, take the opportunity to enjoy Grouse Mountain's many attractions. Depending on the season you travel, you will see lumberjack shows, grizzly bears at the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife, and even theatre presentations.

See Vancouver's North Shore and uncover your adventurous side while on this amazing Canadian tour. With cruise ship pickup and hotel and airport drop-off, you can enjoy your spectacular day with ease and convenience.

Taking this tour was a great way to end our vacation after going on a wonderful Alaskan cruise! Our flight was not until 11:00pm so spending the day exploring Vancouver and Grouse Mountain was perfect! We had beautiful weather which was wonderful for exploring and enjoying the suspension bridge, trails, cliff walks, riding the skyride and seeing the grizzly bears! Our driver was excellent and very knowledge which helped to make the day very special!

Wonderful excursion!!!

We took this excursion after finishing our Alaska cruise in Vancouver. Our flight home from Vancouver to Ottawa wasn’t until 11:30 pm so we booked this excursion. It was so much fun! Our guide was so knowledgeable as he took us through different parts of the Vancouver area. Highlights were visiting Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain, where we got to see 2 bears and have lunch looking over an amazing view! We were picked up at the Cruise Port and dropped off at the Airport. Perfect! 👌 Totally recommend this excursion!

This was a tour that picked up from the cruise ship and dropped off at the airport that evening. There were multiple stops, with plenty of time to enjoy each location. Our guide/driver was friendly and knowledgeable, never rushed the guests, and provided excellent information.

Very nice tour. The tour director was very knowable about the area and interesting to listen to. He was able to deal with unexpected things coming up (like a person forgetting about the tour and after calling him worked it in to going back and get him). All the stops were interesting and fun to go to. I would recommend the tour to anyone.
