How far is downtown Vancouver to the cruise port?
Of all the new cruisers to our fair city this is one of the most common questions I get, so let’s take a deeper look.
How Far is Downtown Vancouver to the Cruise Port?
Let’s break it down quickly: the Vancouver Cruise Port is actually right downtown.
You’ll find it connected to the Port of Vancouver and the Canada Place convention centre.
As you can see, the cruise port is located in the downtown area: about a 20 minute walk from Stanley Park and a 10 minute walk to the cultural action in Gastown.
Here’s the distance to some other well known Vancouver landmarks for better understanding:
- Robson Square (shopping, Vancouver Art Gallery): 1.2 km (0.6 miles) or 14 min walk
- Blue Water Cafe (one of Vancouver’s best restaurants, Yaletown): 1.9 m (1.1 miles) or 25 min walk
- Parq Casino Resort (one of Vancouver’s best casinos): 2.1 km (1.2 miles) or 28 min walk
- English Bay Beach (one of Vancouver’s best beaches): 2.7 km (1.4 miles) or 35 min walk
It’s also the first stop on the Vancouver Hop on Hop Off Bus which allows you to discover most of the city in just two hours.
If you’re staying at one any of the best hotels near Vancouver Cruise Terminal you should be able to walk in minutes, though a five to ten minute Vancouver taxi never hurts with luggage.
Expect to pay around $8.00 to $10.00 for the trip.
Speaking of luggage, if you’re looking to lighten the load I highly suggest leaving your bags at the Vancouver cruise terminal luggage storage.
A bit further out?
If you prefer to use Vancouver public transportation, you can take the SkyTrain from various locations in the city to get to Waterfront Station, which is right below the cruise port.
The cost for a one-way fare is $2.75 CAD for an adult.
Overall, the distance from downtown Vancouver to the cruise port is virtually non-existent, though you’re looking at about a maximum of 2.5 km (1.5 miles) from places like the Central Business District, Yaletown, and the West End.
