Hop-On, Hop-Off + Vancouver Lookout + Vancouver Aquarium

From Sea to Sky, this bundle will bring you from the streets of Vancouver down into the majestic world below our oceans and then above with a glass elevator ride to the top of the Vancouver Lookout tower. The Lookout tour boasts 360-degree panoramic views from the observation deck while the Vancouver Aquariums education and conservation programs teach visitors about our incredible ocean species and amazing aquatic life. See how our marine ecosystem and vibrant urban life fuel this diverse coastal city.




Vancouver Aquarium

The award-winning Vancouver Aquarium is a favourite with tourists and locals alike. Famed for its education-focused ocean preservation, the Aquarium can spark joy and passion for all aquatic life. Head over to the 4D theatre, touch small invertebrates in the wet lab, or simply spend your whole time winding through the exhibits – you may even discover a new favourite animal by the time you leave.


Vancouver Lookout

Soar up a beautiful glass elevator to enter the Vancouver Lookout and get a bird’s eye view of the city. With tickets being valid for the full day, you can stop by in the morning to take in the bustle of city life and come back in the evening to watch the sunset. For knowledge seekers, multilingual tours are offered throughout the day to answer any of your questions about the city.


Coal Harbour

Boasting some of the most impressive glass towers in the city, Coal Harbour is a calm modern neighbourhood with beautiful views of the North Shore mountains. Visit one of the many cafes, brew houses and restaurants in the area, or relax in the local parks. Be sure to stop by the Jack Poole Plaza to see the Olympic Cauldron while in the area.


Stanley Park

Named after Lord Stanley of Preston, who designated the park in 1886, Stanley Park is truly the crown jewel of Vancouver. Explore beaches, picnic areas, gardens and many other attractions, only to cap off your day at the Stanley Park Brew Pub.



Named after John ‘Gassy Jack’ Deighton, the iconic bar owner who waited on thirsty sawmill workers in the late 1800s, Gastown is where the city of Vancouver began. Wander the cobblestone streets passing the Gastown Steam Clock and trendy shops and restaurants before paying homage to John Deighton at the Gassy Jack statue.
