Begin your Vancouver half-day pre-cruise shore excursion with a tour of the Lion's Gate Bridge, suspended 1.823 feet (XNUMX m), which offers sweeping views of the harbour, English Bay and beyond. Once you reach the North Shore, you will take a short drive to Capilano Fish Hatchery. Learn about the life cycle of salmon and watch them (in season – July and August) as they leap above the river.
Next, head to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Wind through the giant trees of this temperate rainforest, and learn more about native traditions. Then, cross the 136m bridge to the other side of the river, where you can climb the canopy and set off on a treetop adventure through the walkways above the canyon with the river below. For those looking for a more thrilling adventure, try Clifffwalk, the new bridge attraction. This breathtaking journey takes you through the forest on a series of suspended walkways protruding from the level of the granite cliff to the uncharted territories of the park.
At Skyride Grouse Mountain, take the tram to a vantage point 1200m above the city, and enjoy spectacular views of nature. In summer, along the mountain, take a leisurely walk through the meadows and watch the spectacle of the sporting felling of trees. Get up close to the grizzly bear with only a thin wire fence between you and them. In addition to this beautiful mountain, on a clear day you can see Mount Baker and Vancouver Island off the coast of British Columbia.
When your tour is over, you will be driven to your cruise ship terminal, where you and your luggage will board your ship.
