Joe’s BBQ Boat brings grilling to False Creek

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Victoria Day (May 18) marks the unofficial start to outdoor-dining season. For something different from the usual back-yard party, how about grilling on the water?

      Joe’s BBQ Boat is an electric-powered vessel that looks like a giant orange inner tube; it seats up to eight guests around a small propane grill in the centre. Rentals come with life jackets and other equipment, and you can bring your own food or add catering.

      The rate is for a minimum 2.5-hour rental, and the per-person cost goes down for larger groups. (Two people, for example, would pay $165, while four would pay $275.)

      You don’t need a boating licence to take it out; for details, see

      We tries out this on our holiday in Vancouver. Very cool view of the City, bbq'ing the food we picked up at Granville market. :)

      Fire. Boats. Drunk people. What could go wrong?
