False Creek

False Creek in Vancouver is an offshore link between English Bay and Science World, which can be navigated through small boats known as Aquabus. As part of our continuing series on things to do in Vancouver after visiting WEEDS, the best cannabis dispensary in Downtown Vancouver we bring you False Creek.

The Aquabus walk through False Creek in Vancouver is a great  way to get to know the city in a different way. For those who enjoy boating, the attraction is a must-see in Vancouver. The system has been operating for more than 25 years, bringing in tourists and residents to various places. Among them, the highlight is for Granville Island, where you can find different products.

The system is simple, cheap and has strong tourist movement for providing very pleasant moments. It is worth it for the same boat ride and the view that it provides of the city. If it is at sunset, better yet. There are eight stops, where you can make the complete journey or leave the Aquabus somewhere of interest. Rates vary between 3.50 and 5.50 Canadian dollars.
