False Creek, while sounding small is a rather large inlet of water that is full of life. Granville Island sits in False Creek as does yaletown and Vanier Park. Both the Burrard and Granville Bridges cross False Creek. You can cycle, walk, stop at cafe's, and take a water Taxi anywhere along False Creek. You will find Stanley park at... More

This is a great way to see Downtown Vancouver and the seascape. Plenty of walkways along the water with nice views and parks surrounding. Walk by the beautiful BC Center or towards the Science World. Watch kayakers, boats, water taxis, etc. It was easy to just walk around and enjoy the beautiful day with my wife. Recommended for a casual... More

Maybe it's not so secret but I like this part of False Creek that is under the Burrard bridge. You can park there in the huge parking lot, walk the seawall, walk to Granville Island, see the rowers rowing by, and see Bard on the Beach all on the same day!!

I really enjoyed using the little boats, stopping like a bus system at various docks. A picturesque way to travel, especially for a prairie person.

The walking/cycling path starts at Kitsilano Beach and follows the harbor shore to the mouth of False Creek. Then it moves away from the shoreline and under the southern end of Burrard street bridge it rejoins the waterfront at the Fisherman's wharf just before going under the Grandville Bridge which passes over Grandville Island. This small Island has lots of... More

The friendly pilot told us his biggest clientele came from business people during rush hours. Discount or free passes were included with a trolley tour we used that day. The ride from one side to the other took less than 10 minutes. We landed at Granville Island, and picked up our tour vehicle on the way back.

Very good view, you can walking or cycling along the false creek, the best way maybe to take the false creek ferries, buy a day pass, to hop on and hop off along all the stops, from Science Center to Sunset Beach.

We spent an excellent day watching an international dragon boat festival in Vancouver. The event was free to watch and there were loads of other activities taking place too. The event was sponsored and the sponsors had stalls out along with other local businesses. The racing was exciting and you got great views

Great for getting around the false creek area and over to Granville Island. There are pick-up locations situated on both sides of False Creek. They have a dedicated ferry which only runs between Granville Island and Hornby Strett on Yaletown side.

You can ride the False Creek Ferry line or the aqua bus line up and down False Creek. I think they even offer a hop on hop off option. On a nice day, it's a nice other view of Vancouver which is very dense if you are exploring the city on foot.
