Our journey over to Granville was about 5 mins long, and ticket price minimal. Great price for Seniors!

Travelled from False Creek to Granville Island. We were going to walk, but came across the ferry unexpectedly. He had just left but came back to pick us up. Interesting trip across the busy water.

We used false Creek Ferries four times. It is a cheap and versatile way to get around the river. All the crews that we encountered seemed happy in their work and were knowledgeable about the areas.

Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls

visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh
