Attractions - Advance Booking for August?

We're planning a trip to Vancouver mid-August. We have our flights and hotels sorted, but haven't planned itinerary yet and thinking of doing so closer to the date.

But as I know August is quite a peak season, are there any big tourist attractions or things to do that need booking in advance?

Is it just Vancouver you're planning on visiting or are you venturing farther out from the city?

You might want to book a whale watching tour a few days in advance.

If you are going to Vancouver Island with a car, you will want to make a reservation on the ferry sailings you want.

Book in advance:

- Car rental

- Any ferry sailings to Vancouver Island or any of the Gulf Islands.

- Tours or theater such as whale watching or Bard on the Beach.

- High-end or high-in-demand restaurants, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
