About This Attraction

False Creek Ferries

Canada’s history is interwoven with the cultures of our First Nations people, and the original inhabitants of this land are finally becoming a celebrated and respected aspect of everyday life in Canada. In Vancouver, First Nations art is highlighted throughout the streets. From Hill’s Native Art store that began in 1946, to the iconic Inukshuk that became the symbol of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. First Nations art galleries abound in Vancouver, and each piece in one way or another gives insight into the stories, histories, and beliefs of our cherished aboriginal peoples.

Hop-On With Us


Our Hop-On, Hop-Off PARK Route includes a short ferry transfer from Stop P13, the Aquatic Centre, over to Granville Island. Upgrade your ticket to cruise to 9 different stops throughout False Creek, connecting you to highlights like the Maritime Museum, Granville Island, Yaletown, Edgewater Casino, Olympic Village and Science World!

Variety is the spice of life, so for each of our Hop-on Hop-off tours we dish it up and you get to choose. We operate two types of vehicles, and while both buses travel the same routes, each offers a very different tour experience. Of course, we suggest you take the time to enjoy both, but we won't make you. Channelling the spirit of San Francisco, our Trolley's will have you ready for a jolly time. The driver will provide you with live commentary of your tour, lending a local's authentic take on the magic that makes Vancouver great. But as fun as our trolley tours are, our clear-top buses are equally special. Your view of the city will be like no other as you tour the streets with the wind in your hair, experiencing our vibrant downtown with all of your senses. You will be accompanied by a recorded commentary that is available in multiple languages.
