On a hot sunny day in Vancouver, BC, there's nothing more enjoyable than a walk along the seawall on the north side of False Creek, which is an ocean inlet that separates downtown from the south side of the city.
Dotted along the creek are beautiful parks, attractive condos, and ferry docks where you can catch tiny passenger ferries for a five-minute crossing to a variety of attractions on the other side, including popular Granville Island Market and Science World.
The inlet is filled with small marinas and there is a lot of boat traffic to watch — everything from small yachts to kayakers and even paddle boarders.
The ferries run every few minutes, so bide your time and make sure to choose one that has open windows. You'll be riding almost at the water's level, so lean out into the breeze to enjoy the experience. The views are breathtaking.
Buy a day pass ($15) and you can ride the ferries all day, from one dock to another, getting off to explore each neighbourhood. It's like a day's mini cruise!
