In the heart of Vancouver, False Creek waterways offer lively views, miniferry transportation and sports afloat.

Market trip by aquabus to Granville Island across False Creek takes bikes, folks, dogs on a 3 minute ‘cruise’ either round trip or one way. Surrounded by history and the telltale signs of long-and-recent past industries, the creek is constantly evolving as homes, boats, businesses jostle for position along this fascinating waterfront. If you visit the area check out the nature island near Olympic village for a taste of the creek’s shore-origins.

Next stop, take a bigger ferry (seabus) across Burrard Inlet from downtown Vancouver to visit beautiful Waterfront park North Vancouver. Climb up sculptures (mountain sized with mountain backdrops) that warn you ‘don’t climb’ … and of course you do if you’re ten or so!

September’s highlight at waterfront park honours the ‘Salish Sea’ with beautiful messages and lasting images, like this dugout canoe bearing a banner “many people One canoe” -never far between sea and north shore mountain.
