“Water taxi to Granville Island”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

You can take a nice stroll around False Creek and watch the goings on all around and on the water or take one of the little ferries that zip up and down the water. We walked to Granville Island and spent the afternoon there and then caught the little ferry from there across False Creek down to the Science Museum.
The views are great and we took some good photos from the boat and we saw people kayaking and stand up paddling along the Creek. It's a hive of activity with lots of people are running, cycling and walking along the paths round False Creek as well. It's a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

“Love this area in Vancouver!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Every visit to the city includes an awesome stroll around False Creek and always an amazing brunch @ Provence Marina side! Love the paved walk way and this time we enjoyed how all the trees had changed colour which made our time in False Creek very memorable!! Best views here!!!

“Lovely corner”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

A little quiet corner, very residential. Boats, market, restaurants. What more could you need. A short walk into downtown Vancouver and the sky train has good connections.

“Good Place to Start!!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

False creek is the starting place for great viewing, go to Granville Island, or just cruise around on the little water taxis. Better parking cause Granville is always so busy; take the water taxi over and back-fun, fun, fun!!

Easy and almost no waiting (every five minutes) made for fun and inexpensive boat rides.
