The 4 Best Things to do at Night in Vancouver

By Chris Boyle


 For a truly romantic Vancouver experience, paddle in a double kayak by moonlight through the waters of English Bay with the Ecomarine Ocean Kayak Centre.

No experience is necessary for this two-hour moonlight adventure, and an amiable tour guide accompanies you for safety and minimal instruction should you need it. Your tour begins at sunset from a sandy beach in downtown Vancouver; from here you’ll paddle along the lapping water while taking in the city skyline and the outline of the North Shore Mountains and Stanley Park.

In 2007 the company put on a pioneering production of The Magic Flute, re-interpreted and set within the myth-scape of coastal First Nations communities. This innovative, one-of-a-kind cultural collaboration involved partnerships, discussions and creative exploration with First Nations artists, designers, elders and advisors, and featured clothing, dance and language from the traditions of these communities. This kind of unique artistic partnership is typical of Vancouver Opera’s cutting edge creative outlook, and has ensured its status as one of the most renowned cultural organizations in the country. Try a night at the opera during your Vancouver trip, and you may discover something wonderful.
