The water taxis are the perfect way to move about False Creek. Leave the car parked and use these efficient boats. Cheaper and in many cases much quicker than regular taxis.

I was quite surprised to find the ferry was really only a very little boat in the shape of a ferry.
It was a great way to get to Granville Island.
The trip gave lovely views of Vancouver well worth a trip.

Strange and quirky way of getting around but convenient. The smaller "boats" are noisy and uncomfortable, don't board one for one of the longer sightseeing tours!
But very convenient, friendly crew who are informative and pleased to help.

Excellent trip along False Creek to get to Granville Island from downtown Vancouver. Warm, friendly boatpeople. A very reasonable roundtrip fare. A great way to see Vancouver from the water.

Great way to get around the harbour, but pricy on short trips.
Better than taking a cab or bus.
Relaxing
