    Canada Place - where the cruise ships dock.

    by worldkiwi Written Aug 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Canada Place is a wharf shaped like a ship and fittingly it's where cruise ships dock when in Vancouver. Canada Place sports Vancouver's iconic sails (see the photo), which actually form the exterior of the main building's roof. The view from the end of the wharf is great (when there are no ships docked).
    This is a free sight in Vancouver and worth it for the chance to stretch your legs and breathe in the sea air!

    Directions: Vehicular and pedestrian access along the foot of Howe and Burrard streets.

    Great Views of Northern Vancouver and Stanley Park

    Picture taking opportunties all around this area. The weather was great and it was nice just soaking up the sun and being close to the water. I am a little land locked in Raleigh to enjoy this activity.

    IMAX Theatre

    Canada Place is not only a beautiful structure, resembling a long ship with multi sails, but it houses convention centres, restaurants a world class hotel and hosts many interesting events. This is also the major Cruise ship port, very classy.
    The IMAX theatre is housed in this building, and is a very impressive "event", if you've never experienced a night out at the IMAX movies, try it here. Their program changes frequently, so you'll be able to choose something.

    Canada Place is home to the Vancouver Convention Center and the Pan Pacific and Fairmont Waterfront Hotels. It is cool, but it is not really a tourist site, it is fun to walk down the "pier" and back, but that is about it.

    If you visit Vancouver you MUST go to Canada Place. This Convention Center (also a port) is one of the most famous Vancouver symbols. Not only because of it´s wonderful architectural design (beatuiful white roofs, fantastic glass covered building), but also for the IMAX theatre, partys in there, etc.
    I think it's a good experience worth it to visit.

    Sydney has the Opera House....and Vancouer has the sails of Canada Place. This building is becoming a recognizable icon of Vancouver. Canada Place is located on the waterfront and is a port of call for cruise ships from around the world. The complex also houses an Imax theatre, Convention centers and a World Trade Center.

    The White Sails of Canada Place

    by toontown Written Jul 9, 2004

    Canada Place is a great way for a newcomer to immediately grasp the flavour of Vancouver, with the busy harbour and cruise ships in the fore and majestic mountains as a backdrop. When I first moved to Vancouver this was a favourite spot. I would grab a coffee from the nearby train station and go as far out to the 'bow' as possible to watch the seaplanes take off and land. Of course Canada Place is also home to offices, the convention centre, and the PanPacific Hotel, which is first class.

    If you want to get some close up views of massive cruise ships and you are venturing around downtown, take the time to visit Canada Place.

    Canada Place is no doubt one of Vancouver's more unique buildings and brings character to Vancouver's Harbour.

    Canada Place also has an IMAX Theatre if your up for some entertainment. The link below has another link to IMAX so you can see what is playing.

    Canada Place and the Cruise Ships

    Canada Place is one of the the most recognizable buildings in downtown Vancouver. It's currently the city's Convention Center, although I wonder, how much internal space these sail-shaped tents can provide. Nevertheless, it's a beautiful architecture to photograph, especially from Stanley Park or Burrard Inlet. Canada Place is also the main terminal for many Alaskan cruise ships, bringing in extra tourists in the summer.

    It's fun to walk the Canada Place Promenade alongside the docked cruise ships. You can see the many activities happening at different levels of the ship at the same time.

    Canada Place

    by MDH Written Apr 20, 2003

    This remarkable structure juts out into the Burrard Inlet as if it were pier. In fact, it serves as a pier, when cruise liners, warships, and other vessels dock here. It also serves as a large convention center, and has a large IMAX theatre. The architecture of the place itself is unique, with sails raised above its long structure. Because of this, some people have remarked that it looks a bit similar to Sydney's Opera House.

    The Canada Place is great to walk around and to snap pictures of. It provides great views of the city's harbor and downtown as well. Finally, if you want a good IMAX theatre, then this is the place.

    Directions: North end of downtown. Follow the signs.

    Canada Place is a cruise ship terminal adjacent to the Pan Pacific Hotel. If you come here in the summer time, you'll see many different cruise ships docked here.

    If you ever see a picture of Vancouver on TV, chances are you're seeing a shot of the Canada Place cruise ship terminal.

    Visit Canada Place

    Built in the shape of a stylised cruise ship, Canada Place houses a plush hotel, offices, shops, exhibition halls, restaurants and an IMAX cinema. At least, it will once it's finished. The bow of the 'ship' is still under construction, and a lot of it was closed off when I visited one overcast Saturday, although the hotel is certainly there, as is the cinema. Still, you get some great views from the deck which runs round the upper level of the structure, notably of the north shore, Stanley Park and downtown. Canada Place's distinctive 'sails' are regarded as one of Vancouver's landmarks, and are recognisable from far away.

    CANADA PLACE Convention and Exhibition Centre as well as the cruise terminal are found here. Ironally enough, despite the reputation of attracting millions of people annually, it was quite calm when I visited. However, I do like the design of the complex.
