Early mornings are usually the best time to get out on the water, as the water is usually at its calmest. Boating in the morning hours usually means you can reach some of our great destinations faster and have more time to relax and explore once you get there.
The busiest time of the day for boat traffic on the water is usually mid-day, so by departing earlier you will nearly have the ocean to yourself. These favorable conditions might save you some time travelling to different attractions, so you might have some extra time to stop off for a morning snack at either Bowen Island or Deep Cove, both beautiful seaside villages just an hour from our location.
Whether you love to get up early or don't want to be out on the water at the hottest time of the day, then setting off on your boat rental adventure first thing in the morning is one of the best times to go.
You may also find that it is easier to find docking space at the seaside villages and a car parking space on Granville Island during the morning hours.
