Take the little ferry from the bottom of Hornby Street to Granville Island or other locations. It's cute. It's fun. It's cheap. It's quintessential Vancouver.

These are a very handy "transit" adjunct that can get you from one attraction to another (or really close!). Well worth the minor fee to get a fabulous view of Vancouver from the water.

After walking over 25 miles in two days, we were ready to use the False Creek Ferries to get us home. There was no waiting at the Vanier Park dock and our coxswain was also a good guide. Price is very reasonable and we enjoyed...More

This is a relaxing ride. We got off Granville island from False creek so it was a bit short but I'd say a good rest for our feet. You get to see the skyline from the water. Enjoyed it and the staff is great!

So easy to use, inexpensive as well. Used mostly to get to and from Granville Island, but also took to Yaletown. Helpful drivers! Did not use competitor Aquabus, so cannot compare, but easily recommend this brand.

Be sure to have cash if you’re purchasing your tix someplace besides Granville Island. Easy and frequent pickups throughout the city.

They accept credit cards (Visa and MasterCard) and debit cards at their Granville Island dock, this is a good point to start if you want round trip fares, I believe it’s cash only on the boat for journeys from other docks.

Unfortunately, not set up for that as far as I can see. You might email to ask. Very bobbing around type small boat, little deck space.

They do have a 40 minute tour that only costs $11 CAD. It goes to all the stops the Ferry makes on False Creek and returns you to their main dock.
