What a great idea these small boats are, for travelling along False Creek. We used the ferries a couple of times to get from the beach to Granville Island. They run all along the waterway, stopping at at least 8 different places. You can get...More

We did visit False Creek and used the ferries to get around, apart from being quick and cheap, it was a great way to see the sights from the water. Easy to use and frequent.

10 minute ferry ride to Granville Island. Liked seeing Vancouver from the ferry. Worth the 5.00 charge.

These ferries are like a cross between Venice's water busses and a water taxi. They are compact, relatively inexpensive and convenient. Note that not all the piers are easy to find or sheltered from the weather, but they are a great way to get a...More

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.
