Please join us for an exclusive cruise organized by the Sea-to-Sky Branch of APEGBC. We are holding our 2nd Annual Harbour Cruise Event in conjunction with the annual Celebration of Lights fireworks display in English Bay. This year, we will be onboard the new V2V Empress (a 254-seat passenger vessel) during the first evening of the fireworks event.

Come out and enjoy a pleasant evening with fellow engineers, geoscientists, friends and colleagues onboard the V2V Empress. You'll have one of the best views in the city! We will be sailing through English Bay during the fireworks display while enjoying a canapé-style dinner.

For more information on the Celebration of Light, visit the website.
