One boat from the False Creek Ferry fleet motors toward Granville Island from the opposite shore with the Burrard Bridge in the back.
One of the most notable and interesting experiences within the downtown region are the water taxis which serve to ferry people from the north side of False Creek to the other side and vice versa.
Known as the False Creek ferries, these little boats are capable of taking up to 15 people aboard and are a local favourite as many people in the inner city travel often across the water to Granville Island, Vanier Park (home of the Vancouver Museum, Planetarium and Maritime Museum), and Science World.
There are three sailing points (another is run by a different ferry company) on the North side of False Creek near the Aqua Centre, one on the Yaletown pier, and lastly one at the United Nations plaza beside the Casino.
These ferries criss-cross the creek and are a tourist favourite in the summer months as they run all day services and provide a daily rate, passing through marinas, underneath the main bridges into the city and sometimes by seals who call False Creek home.
