DescriptionA privately run marina, the Granville Island Marina is located on Vancouver’s distinctive Granville Island. Sitting under the south end of the Granville bridge in False Creek, Granville Island was a hub of industry called Industrial Island when it opened in 1916. It now contains a public market, shops, restaurants, marina, the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, theatres, studios and art galleries. Perhaps more than any of its other amenities, the busy marina with its array of enticing, docked vessels marks Granville Island as being distinctively West Coast.
