Fun little boats to ride on a nice day to / from / around Granville Island. Next time we will get an all day pass to ride the full route. We got a short ride as part of our Hop On/Off bus pass.

Take a round trip on a small tugboat style ferry, from Granville Island. We stopped at the old Edgewater Casino and walked around the Plaza of Nations, got back on and enjoyed the ride. It was around $5

This is the best way to see Vancouver. It as well hits several great tourist spots and dining venues. The ferry will take you to Science World, Granville Island, St. Rich, Vanier Park where the Planetarium is situated, plus David Lam Park and downtown.

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.
