Granville Island Ferry Hop-On Hop-Off Day Pass
From US$12.38
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Take a break from the bustling city of Vancouver and experience a unique hop-on hop-off tour. The blue-and-white False Creek ferry is the most convenient way to get to Granville Island and the many attractions that line Vancouver's inner harbor. Your pass is valid all day, so you can catch the ferry at any of the 9 stops at your leisure. Enjoy Chinatown, the Maritime Museum, Science World and several other attractions.
What to Expect
The jaunty, blue-and-white False Creek ferries sail to nine stops around Vancouver's inner harbour. With ferries checking in at each dock every 5-to-15 minutes, exploring at any pace is a breeze, and it's never a long wait for the next boat.
Aboard this year-round working ferry, the operators are often full of interesting anecdotes about the geography and history of 'the Creek'. Experience an eclectic mix of both passengers and crew as the year-round service is used by local commuters, market workers, students, and tourists in equal numbers. For sightseers, the ferries offer a unique ride with beautiful views of local scenery. Remember to watch for seals.
An all-day ferry pass is an ideal way way to get to all the attractions around Vancouver Harbour. Vouchers purchased online can be redeemed on the dock from the ferry crew.
Highlights on the creek include:
Granville Island:  (Granville Island Dock) — Home of the famous Granville Island Public Market, the 'Island' is a people place in the heart of the city. It's a rich mixture of color and culture featuring the Granville Island Brewery, Kids Only Market, water park, street entertainers, numerous restaurants, galleries, and theatres. Throughout the year, there are festivals and maritime adventures for all tastes.
Vanier Park: (Maritime Museum Dock) — Home to several museums, including the Maritime Museum, which features the historic RCMP schooner St. Roch, one of the first ships to navigate the famed Northwest Passage, as well as a spectacular collection of models, artifacts, and exhibits.  Kitsilano Beach is a 3-minute walk from the ferry dock.
Please note: the little blue ferries are the ONLY ferries that stop at the Maritime Museum Dock.
English Bay Beach / West End: (Aquatic Centre Dock) — Ranked in 2016 as one of the world's top beaches by 'the Guardian,' English Bay Beach is home to dozens of fantastic restaurants, as well as the city's buzzing Davie Village.
Yaletown and Chinatown (Yaletown, David Lam, Plaza Docks) — Originally an industrial neighborhood that is now a trendy mix of warehouse lofts, high-rise apartments, mega-yachts, art galleries, night clubs, and restaurants. The renowned Dr. Sun Yat-Sen garden was the first authentic 'scholars' garden to be built outside of China.
Science World: (the Village Dock) — Featuring hands-on exhibits and experiments that will delight kids and adults alike. Originally an industrial area, the former Olympic Village now boasts an impressive array of brewpubs, as well as some unique neighbors — two beavers have recently taken up residence in the local park.
