False Creek Tours

False Creek
An inlet dividing downtown Vancouver from the rest of the city, False Creek borders some of Vancouver’s busiest shoreside neighborhoods, from chic Yaletown to Granville Island. The inlet hums with the activity of ferries, kayaks, and other boats, while the water’s edge is lined with scenic paths.
 
The Basics
Many travelers cross False Creek via the Burrard Street, Granville, or Cambie Street bridges on the way downtown. Some bike tours follow routes along the edge of False Creek, while select cruises and kayaking tours depart from Granville Island and venture out into the inlet. Water-based tours offer a unique view of shoreside urban landmarks, including Science World and BC Place stadium, and provide a chance to spot wildlife, such as harbor seals and cormorants.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • A False Creek bike ride, walk, or cruise is a must for first-time visitors to Vancouver.
  • False Creek is not suitable for swimming, though it is possible to use kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and dragon boats on the waterway.
  • The seawall is wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair-accessible ferries and boats also venture out into False Creek.
 
How to Get There
False Creek faces downtown Vancouver and is easily accessible via public transport. Take the SkyTrain to Stadium-Chinatown (Expo line), Main Street-Science World (Expo line), Yaletown-Roundhouse (Canada line), or Olympic Village (Canada line).
 
When to Get There
False Creek is quietest in early morning and evening. For a memorable experience, opt for a nighttime cruise or kayak tour, so you can see Vancouver sparkle.
 
Stroll the False Creek Seawall
Extending along the north and south edges of False Creek are pedestrian and cycle-friendly promenades. Follow the wide, paved False Creek seawall, which offers excellent views of the downtown skyline and mountain peaks looming behind the skyscrapers. The route leads past Granville Island Market, waterfront parks, and the Olympic Village, which hosted athletes during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Address: Vancouver, BC, Canada
