Kind of expensive but really cute way to get around. Drivers were lovely and informative. If you get on at Granville Island there is Card paying facility otherwise you need cash on hand to give the driver at any other stop.

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.
