Have you ever wanted to captain a False Creek Ferry? The little blue boats are hosting an open house on Granville Island for people interested in learning more about becoming a ferry captain.
False Creek Ferries Open House Job Fair
- Date: Wednesday, February 21, 2024 10:00am to 4:00pm
- Location: Granville Island Dock
- Positions: Ferry operator and deckhands
One of the ferries will be standing by for members of the public to introduce themselves to management, learn more about the job, and get a feel for the vessels. Attendees are encouraged to bring their resumes and any relevant certification with them.
Now in their 42nd year of operation, the little blue ferries are a long-standing institution on the Vancouver waterfront and one of the best ways to get around across the West End, Yaletown, Kitsilano, Olympic Village, Fairview, and Granville Island.
Often referred to as “Vancouver’s best summer job”, driving the little blue ferries has been a first step for many professional mariners, many of whom have gone on to high profile positions in the local and international marine industries. Diversity is at the core of the company’s strength, and False Creek Ferries has employed individuals from all walks of life, including actors, students, musicians, artists, scientists, engineers, and athletes.
