Getting to Granville Island
Because of Granville Island’s central location, you can escape the city without having to leave it. It also makes it very easy to get to, whether by boat, by car, by bus, by bicycle or on foot.

Map to Granville Island

By Boat
runs from 7am to 10:30pm in the summer (8:30pm in winter).
Inexpensive and fun the rainbow-coloured Aquabus travels around False Creek with stops at the foot of Hornby St., Stamp’s Landing, Yaletown (foot of Davie St.), and Science World. The Aquabus dock on Granville Island is located between the Public Market and the Arts Club Theatre.

False Creek Ferry
The False Creek Ferries also travel around the Inlet and stop at the Maritime Museum (west of Granville Island), the Aquatic Centre (under the Burrard St. Bridge, on the downtown side (north) of the Inlet), Stamp’s Landing, and Science World (the easternmost point of False Creek). The False Creek Ferry dock on Granville Island is located near the entrance to Bridges Restaurant.

Getting to Granville Island by Car
is easy from your point of origin, travel towards the intersection of West 4th Avenue and Fir Street. Then head north on Fir Street, and take either the first right at West 3rd Avenue (which turns into Anderson St. to the left (north)), or take the second right at West 2nd Ave. and should be able to see the Granville Island sign under the bridge looking northward on Anderson St. Follow Anderson St. onto Granville Island.

Parking on Granville Island
is limited. If you can, leave the car at home and get to Granville Island by bus, boat, bicycle or on foot.

Bicycle routes to Granville Island
follow the main car routes, but there’s also a pleasant, scenic bicycle path (shared with pedestrians) that runs east-to-west past the Island along the south shore of False Creek Inlet.

On Foot to Granville Island
Arriving on Granville Island by foot enables you to appreciate the Island from a whole new angle. A comfortable seaside walk follows the False Creek Inlet on both the north and south shores. The south shore walk, which passes right by Granville Island, begins at its easternmost point just under the Cambie Street Bridge, and heads all the way west to some of Vancouver’s most popular beaches.

Cloud 9 Restaurant

Cloud 9 Revolving Restaurant & Lounge On the top floor of the Empire Landmark Hotel on Robson Street

Get an awesome view while dining thats the selling point of Cloud 9.
Most tables in the Restaurant are arranged by the window and you have this spectacular view of Vancouver and it’s city lights. The restaurant revolves and you hardly notice while eating.

” My husband and I have had “Cloud 9″ on our to go to list,so we went last week. We had a 2 for 1 coupon, which made it affordable. Our reservations were for 7 p.m. so we saw the city scape in the daylight and at night. The food was good, but since they are more of an upscale restaurant, do not expect regular sized portions. It is all about the presentation! The restaurant was very cool, next time we would definitely bring an extra layer.
We highly recommend it if you want to see an amazing view of the local mountains, Lions Gate Bridge and the city.”
