Family Fun on the False Creek Ferries

Why not come down for a boat ride on the little blue ferries? You may not be able to go on an island getaway down in the tropics, but an “island cruise” from Granville Island could be the next best thing! Our boats offer a unique ride, with beautiful views of the city skyline. Our operators can provide interesting anecdotes about the geography and history of False Creek.

No reservation? No problem! All of our cruises sail from our dock on Granville Island every 15 minutes, every day, 9 am – 7 pm. Just come on down to our dock and we’ll get you set up on the next available departure. Tickets purchased online are able to be redeemed up to three months later.

Custom Charters & Cruises

Make your special event even more memorable with a custom charter or cruise aboard a False Creek Ferry. From weddings and photo shoots, to family events, False Creek Ferries has the perfect combination of vessels and services to meet your needs.

If your group would prefer a private ferry instead of sharing seating on our regular scheduled service, private pickups are available. At this time, we require at least 24 hours notice in order to arrange this service. Please email us at, or call us at 604-684-7781 for rates and information.


  • $200/hr for a 12 passenger ferry.
  • $300/hr for a 20 passenger ferry.
