About This Harbour Tour

False Creek e-Tour

Welcome to the world of Electric Boats and False Creek’s newest water experience! Our new 10 passenger 100% Electric Duffy Boats are ultra quiet, luxuriously appointed and create zero air and water pollution. Learn what makes Vancouver so spectacular as you sail past Vanier Park, Granville Island and Yaletown with expansive views of Burrard Inlet and local beaches.

  • Depart from Heritage Marina, located adjacent to the Maritime Museum, showcasing historical ships and boats.
  • 1 hour live narrated tour through Vancouver’s renowned False Creek provides fascinating secrets of Granville Island, history of Yaletown and Olympic Village neighbourhoods and cultural local anecdotes.
  • Glide under three architecturally unique bridges, perhaps race a dragon boat and ready your cameras for sweeping views of English Bay with amazing local mountain backdrops

During your tour, you’ll see some of Vancouver’s top highlights, including :

  • Vanier Park: Located on the edge of English Bay, Vanier Park boasts wonderful views of downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park. The park is home to the Museum of Vancouver, the Vancouver Maritime Museum and the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre.
  • False Creek Yacht Club: The False Creek Yacht Club is nestled into the bustling shores of Vancouver’s False Creek. Known locally as ‘The Star of False Creek’, the marina is home to about 100 water vessels (both power and sailing).
  • Granville Island: Granville Island is a peninsula and shopping district in Vancouver. The peninsula was once an industrial manufacturing area, but today it is now a hotspot for Vancouver tourism and entertainment.
  • Floating Homes: One of Vancouver’s most unique communities, Sea Village is a collection of homes on the water…literally. This floating community has been part of False Creek since the 1960’s.
  • Burrard Street Bridge: This Art Deco style, steel truss bridge was constructed between 1930–1932. The Burrard Street Bridge, opened July 1, 1932, was built to provide a high-level crossing from Vancouver to the southwestern neighbourhoods in Kitsilano, by connecting Burrard Street to Cedar Street.

Hop-On With Us


Take our Hop-On, Hop-Off PARK Route to False Creek (Stop #P15) and our boats are in the Heritage Marina located adjacent to the Maritime Museum.

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.
