It's where the action is. The way around the creek is on the AquaBus. They're all short trips, but quite pleasant.

This is a wonderful area to take a walk or take your bike for a ride. Do it on a sunny day (there are about 2 of them per year in Vancouver) and you would think heaven should look something similar. We are blessed in this town with so many wonderful natural areas. This one is up there. If you... More

Granville Island is one of our favorite places in Vancouver, and there's no better way to get there than by water taxi across False Creek. Vancouver's waterfront vibe is put front and center ... and the whole place comes alive with a zillion marinas and boats, with the many waterfront condos (in their quirkily-shaped buildings), with the park along the...

A lovely place to run, walk and cycle. Very accessible and spacious for whatever activity with or without dogs too. There are nice views as well as the Science Museum and the Olympic village

We took a mini-tour of False creek on one of the Water Taxi's. Beautiful views, fun water taxi trip. Lots of action on the water including SPB and kayakers! Would highly recommend including this in a day trip to Granville Island.

What fun spending a day on False Creek! We enjoyed the Aqua Bus day pass and hopped back and forth around the creek. Perfect way to celebrate summer and a day in beautiful Vancouver!!

False creek is lined by some really fun stuff - like the Maritime museum, Granville Island, Stadium, World Of Science and you can use the Aquabus to get around so you can really enjoy it. The water was red during our visit - so i am not sure how clean it was, but seeing Seals there was amazing. A lot... More

Stayed in the False Creek area many times and it is a great location with easy access to all the main Vancouver amenities. The noise from Cambie Bridge can be a bit much if you are staying near the Olympic Village Station, but otherwise it is pretty good.

We spent 2 weeks staying beside the sea wall in yaletown and so used this section of walkway daily. I went jogging around it a few times and using Granville bridge to loop back over, a lovely 5 mile run can be done. It is often very busy but so clean and easy to use - great way to see... More

Loved the walkways, bike path, beach, grass, & science world. Such a busy weekend, yet did not feel crowded. Great place to people watch!
