We enjoyed this quick ferry over to the market. The captain was friendly and gave tourist tips. Quaint little boats! Kids would enjoy.

Very easy and pleasant way of getting to Granville Island from multiple ports of the Seawall. Just $3 one way and they seem to come around every 5 mins or so. Nice experience.
