 Granville Island markets

Tour the Granville Island markets

It doesn't matter if you’ have got toddlers or teens in tow, Vancouver has plenty to keep your family happy on or off the yacht. Whether you are visiting on a private yacht or one of the best family friendly yachts for charter the combination of cultural, educational and thrill-seeking adventures in the great outdoors will keep all generations happy.

Discover five of the best family activities away from your superyacht in Vancouver:

1. Tour the Granville Island markets

Once the site of Vancouver’s industrial mills, Granville Island is now a seaside hub of artisan shops, restaurants and farmer’s markets. And with several marinas along its waterfront, it’s a convenient stop for anyone arriving in Vancouver by yacht. For adults and teens there are art galleries, jewellery and furniture boutiques, live music and theatre shows, restaurants and a Public Market selling fresh local produce, flowers, and sweets.

For the little ones there is the Kids Only Market, with its own miniature ‘kids only’ doorway leading to toy stores, rides, arcades, and candy shops, as well as a playground and small waterpark outside. Afterwards, the family can hop on the water taxi and disembark at Science World – housed in a giant glass orb perched on the waterfront and filled with fun, interactive exhibits, and one of the largest Omnimax (domed-screen) theatres in the world.
