Step back in time, relax and enjoy this scenic 45-minute guided tour featuring historic neighbourhoods, working shipyards, and if the tide is in your favour, a chance to see the reversing falls under the Tillicum Bridge.
Your guide will share the rich history of Coast Salish peoples who have lived on the land for over 4,000 years. Discover the politics, culture, and everyday life of the early Victorian residents. Learn how the Gorge was nearly destroyed by decades of industrial pollution and about the extensive restoration efforts to return the fragile ecosystems to its natural splendor.
This intimate tour will get you up close and personal with some of our favourite things— ocean views, marine life, and history!
Note: In these unique times, the Gorge Tour may need to be boarded rather as a Combo Tour. Where a tour is converted to a Combo, you will see much of the best of each of the two tours.
