Sea to Sky Post Cruise

Just because your cruise has ended, doesn't mean the adventure has to stop now that you are back on land. Begin your day of exploration at the pier when you are met by your local, friendly guide and escorted to your awaiting transportation that can also store your luggage and travel with you. Ride in comfort while being provided live tour commentary conducted in English by your highly trained and award-winning guide.

Make your way out of Vancouver via Stanley Park and the Lions Gate Bridge as you view the beautiful harbor and experience the bay views as the sun rises over the mountains to the east. Travel along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway named one of the top 10 best coastal drives in the world. The longest paved road in Canada, the Trans-Canada Highway, is the way to Horseshoe Bay and winds its way alongside the Coastal Mountains as they rise from the ocean depths and tower over you. Have breath-taking views of the northern hemisphere's most southern fjord as it stretches out to with a backdrop of forested islands and snow-capped peaks.

Your first stop is the beautiful and quaint seaside village of Horseshoe Bay, a small resort community complete with quaint shops and home to a BC Ferries terminal that offers gorgeous views of the surrounding area. Take the time for a short coffee and restroom break all the while snapping panoramic pictures.

Your transportation will next travel up Howe Sound, the southernmost glacial fjord in North America. Just a short trip down the Sea-to-Sky Highway you will soon be able to see and feel nature's power at Shannon Falls - the third highest waterfall in the province at just under 1100 feet. Have your camera ready and enjoy a short walk to the base for some great photos of nature's beauty of these cascading falls.

Located next to Shannon Falls is Squamish's newest visitor attraction, the spectacular Sea to Sky Gondola. Board the gondola and ascend for 10 minutes to 2,800 feet above sea level. Be greeted by panoramic views of Howe Sound and while at the top, test your courage by walking across the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge. At 210 feet high, this bridge and accompanying viewing platforms offer you 325 feet of breathtaking beauty along the top of the forest canopy.

After having time for lunch (at your own expense), you will next make your way back down the highway to your final stop at the Britannia Mine Museum. A national historic site of Canada, you will have the opportunity to board a mine train and ride into an early haulage tunnel, while learning about the unique history of its seventy-year life. With over 60,000 people having lived and worked here, the Britannia Mine was once the biggest copper mine in the British Empire.

After your mine exploration, enjoy a fjord-side return trip to Vancouver and your hotel or the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), but not before one last stunning harbor-view on a second crossing of the Lions Gate Bridge. This 7-hour tour will certainly not disappoint and will make memories that last a lifetime, reserve your place by booking today.

Please Note: This is a tour with pick up at the cruise pier that has the option to conclude at a hotel, the airport, or the train station, and can accommodate luggage. Please include a note when traveling with over two pieces of large luggage, to ensure the proper amount of space is available. The earliest flight time that can be accommodated is 9:00 PM for domestic flights or 10:00 PM for international flights. If your flight has an earlier departure, you will need to leave the tour early and take a taxi at your own expense

A day well spent
September 15, 2019
Although our day-long excursion was altered due to vandalism of the cable car attraction, the substitution cable car and attractions were equally enjoyable. Our post-cruise day was spent most enjoyably and we would recommend the particular excursion to anyone disembarking a cruise ship in Vancouver with a late evening flight home. The price was most reasonable for all we received.

Sea to Sky tour

We didn't get to do the gondola ride as someone had cut the cable and the gondolas and area were closed. We went to Grouse Mountain as an alternative, which was very nice. Every thing else was very nice. We enjoyed this excursion. The bus picked us up at the pier and took us to our hotel after the tour. It was a great tour.

Perfect end to a cruise
August 10, 2019
Our Princess cruise docked in Vancouver Saturday morning, July 20th. We had a non-stop flight home to Atlanta but, t was scheduled to leave at 10:30 that evening. Rather then spend a long day at the airport we booked a Sea to Sky Post Cruise. It was the perfect end to a great vacation. We picked the tour that fit our time frame. The amazing view from the highway, a stop at Shannon Falls and the Gondola ride to the mountain top were fantastic. I would highly recomend this tour.

Fun way to end the vacation
July 14, 2019
This was a fun educational way to end the land-sea tour. Not to mention it was much better than waiting in the airport all day for the 11 p.m. flight. It was also a great bargain. Loved the drive along the coast and the frequent stops. The waterfall was lovely and the view from the top of the mountain was great. The hiking was good too. The suspension bridge was an easy walk. The copper mine was interesting. Could have spent more time looking at the displays. I'm was pleased with the tour and this was much better for me than something I needed to plan for myself.
