Getting Around Vancouver on Foot Ferries

by Lauren Braden

in Trip Ideas

Vancouver. Those of us just  south of the border know how lucky we are to have this fabulous cosmopolitan city just a short drive or train ride away.

Vancouver is chock full of favorite things-– fabulous ethnic restaurants on Denman, the Museum of Vancouver, Stanley Park, the Granville Island Public Market… just to name a few. One of my favorite things in Vancouver are the False Creek foot ferries you take to get from the downtown area to Granville Island. These mini-ferries hold about 20 people, and look a little bit like toys.Aren’t they cute?

I couldn’t believe that this little thing can hold 20 people!!! It looks so small especially when referencing with the man at the pier. 20 people?? :)

To be honest, it only comfortably holds about 12 sitting down!

They do look like little toys! They sort of remind me of little lifesaver rolls. Thanks for sharing this and all the other tips about visiting the area — I’ll be watching coverage from Vancouver this week, and hope to see the place in person someday. Happy Friday.

I am NUTTY, NUTTY I tellya, about those little rainbow shuttle boats. They are one of my favorite things about Vancouver, especially on a sunny day. Cheapest, most fun cruise of the waterways ever, and cute cute cute. I’m NUTTY about them.

Really Lauren, do you and your plant commenters expect us to believe that those toy boats are the size to carry people? You photoshopped that dock and man in there, or are those toys too?
