Granville Island Ferry Hop-On Hop-Off Day Pass
"The jaunty blue-and-white False Creek ferries sail to 9 stops around Vancouver's inner harbour. With ferries checking in at each dock every 5 to 15 minutes exploring at your own pace is a breeze and it's never a long wait for the next boat. Aboard this year-round working ferry the operators are often full of interesting anecdotes about the geography and history of 'The Creek'. You can be sure of an eclectic mix of both passengers and crew as the year-round service is used by local commuters market workers students
