Car Hire Vancouver

Vancouver Airport Guide

This easternmost city in Canada, right on the Pacific seaboard really has something for everyone. It is a modern trendsetting city set on a fabulous harbour full of yachts and cruise ships, no matter what your budget you will be able to feel part of this exciting city.  For something really different why not try a boat trip “whale watching”, these majestic creatures are common in the sea off Vancouver and not something you see every day. Whilst a luxury cruise out of Vancouver may be your dream, it is also easy (and much cheaper!!) to take a trip out of the harbour on the False Creek ferry, the scenery around Vancouver is the same, even if the luxury doesn't quite hit the mark.
