We walked from English Bay Beach, along Sunset Beach and caught the ferry under Burrard Bridge to Granville Island. This was a lovely walk and ferry ride.

A unique ride on a small boat across the English Bay to the "In Spot" of Vancouver. Many markets with local food and gifts for everyone's taste. Great selection of things to buy or things to eat.

We bought a day pass then hopped on and off at most of the stops for a quick look around. The service ran quite frequently so we only waited a few minutes at any one stop

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

They do have a 40 minute tour that only costs $11 CAD. It goes to all the stops the Ferry makes on False Creek and returns you to their main dock.
