These stand up paddle boards light up during this magical Vancouver tour

Not only do the paddle boards light up, but they illuminate the water with vibrant colours...

While stand up paddle boarding offers a great workout during the day, Vancouver Water Adventures hosts a mesmerizing Light the Night tour.

Not only do the paddle boards light up, but they illuminate the water with vibrant colours. Groups are led out at dusk and make their way across Vancouver waters as the sky grows darker.

The water is extremely calm during the night, as there is very little traffic and boat noise. As such, the experience offers a tranquil, breathtaking experience beneath the stars.

Guests may also choose to kayak after dark, instead. There are two options available: ‘Sit on Top’ kayak-single and ‘Sit on Top’ kayak-double.

The one-and-a-half hour long journey begins at sunset and takes place every Friday and Saturday from Granville Island’s Boatlift Lane.

Vancouver Water Adventures also offers seadoo, kayak, and paddle board rentals, as well as dinner tours. They also do boating adventures that include city tours, wildlife tours, sunset cruises, fireworks tours, and more.
