Granville Island/False Creek restaurant with dock?

Granville Island/False Creek restaurant with dock?

Postby djleu » Sun Dec 18, 2011 4:02 am

In April, I will be attending my annual research conference in Vancouver at the Vancouver Convention Centre near Coal Harbour. We will bring our boat up from Bellingham to dock at Coal Harbour during the week and stay aboard. I was wondering if we could cruise over to the False Creek/Granville Island area each afternoon for an early dinner, docking the boat at a marina or restaurant for a few hours while we ate. Does anyone know if that is possible or have a suggestion? Many thanks!

Cheers,

Don

We stayed at the YC in False Creek and took the little passenger ferries to Granville. This is their link. I don't know when Summer starts and the winter hours end early in the evening.

This link is to a general listing of False Creek and Coal Harbor facilities. It mentions a 3 hour guest dock at the Granville Market.

We had a great time there. If you wish, you can anchor out!

In Coal Harbor I like Cadero's which is just to the west of the marina and in the False Creek area Monk's Landing is good as well as all the places on Granville Island. Try the Granville Island Hotel and Bridges.

You walk to Cadero's and there is free mooring (limited time) at Granville Island. I believe Monk's has slips for the pub/restaurant, again limited time.

Fair winds.

Kevin and Don,

Thanks so much for these links and suggestions for short term moorage, while we eat. They sound perfect!

Cheers,

Don

Both Monk's and Cardero's have "dining" moorage, not so sure about overnight. Suggest you contact Granville Island Hotel, they do have overnight moorage and are close to some great restaurants. Alternatively you can anchor in False Creek but will need to register with the Vancouver Port Authority...Enjoy your stay!

Thanks, Boyd! It sounds like we may be able to do short cruises to False Creek each afternoon. Your city is the most beautiful city we know of for boating. We can hardly wait for this trip to begin!

Cheers,

Don
