Coal Harbour is the name for a section of Burrard Inlet lying between Vancouver, Canada's downtown peninsula and the Brockton Peninsula of Stanley Park. It has also now become the name of the neighbourhood adjacent to its southern shoreline, which was redeveloped as an upscale high-rise condominium district in the 1990s.

The harbour is bounded by the Financial District to the south and Stanley Park to the north. To the east is Deadman's Island, the site of the naval station and museum HMCS Discovery, where the harbour opens up to the Burrard Inlet. The discovery of coal in the harbour in 1862 inspired the name. Within the harbour is a floating gas station for marine vessels.

Coal Harbour is home to Vancouver Harbour Water Aerodrome, located a few blocks from Canada Place.

Thank you Jim and Ank !! There are lots of expensive highrise apartments along Georgia Street, Vancouver that overlook this harbour. Those people have Stanley Park as their back yard!!!! And yes, it was starting to get windy.
