The ferries sailing along False Creek are a nice and economical way to see some parts of Vancouver. Several operators do the route along False Creek and these lovely and small ferries are just one of them. They are relatively fast and safe and wonderful!

There are a number of operators doing the same trip here, running up and down False Creek with stops along the way to Granville Island and back, and it doesn’t really matter which one you get.
All have pretty much the same service with small, cute boats, a cheap fare, and a quick trip down the harbour.
We hopped on a False Creek Ferry because it was the first boat to pull up at our wharf and it was a great experience.
The weather was perfect, and the journey is simple – jump aboard, pay on board, and hop off when you want.
There are daily or weekly fares if you plan on doing more trips, but one trip down from Yale Town to Granville island was all we needed.
For the perfect day in Vancouver start the day at OEB Breakfast, walk down to the wharf, jump on the next ferry to Granville Island and then stay for the day

Love those little boats ! So easy to hop on then and get onto the other side of the bay ! For such a little boat they get you from point A to B pretty fast , tickets are not expensive either and you can get day pass.
Only thing that I didn’t enjoy was that employees looked like their really hate their jobs . I get it it’s a job but you chose to work with people , be nice to those who pay for your salary …. Just saying .

We found the service excellent. Ramps are on both sides of entry and exit. We didn't see a ramp for wheelchair access onto actual ferry, and there was a step across to access ferry. Make an enquiry to make sure access is available. One way seniors is $3. Service runs every 5 minutes and is a quick 2 minute ride.

The drivers were helpful when I had questions and got us to our destination. The boats were clean and easy to board and debark.
My only complaint is the kids pricing - could be free for small kids or lower in price for children.

We took the ferry Friday late afternoon. The guy overcharged us $60.50 for 5 adults and a senior. I asked the lady at the booth if she can do anything. She gave me the number to call, left a message didn’t receive a callback. Sent an email but never recieved any reply.

Bald headed man took us from Granville Island to spyglass was very abrupt with everyone on the boat, very unhelpful when I asked which stop was near Canbie St and referred to me as you when he asked where we wanted get off after I had told him 3 times. He was very rude and dropped us in the wrong stop.

We chose False Creek as we wanted to go to a few places. We bought the day pass and went to all stops.
Staff were really friendly, helpful and relaxed.
The boats are small, but it made for really pleasant journeys, really relaxing. Great views.
