Take the ferry from Hornby St across to Granville Island. Cute little journey. After enjoying the markets, hip back in with a 1 buck extra charge to drop off at Yaletown marina. Fun way to travel and get some views and photos from the water.m

Having cycled over Burrard Bridge to the island, I was very relieved to get the Cyquabus back (the Aquabus that takes bikes) - the Bridge was no fun at all (road works), and was a much longer way round

it's just a little boat but it was such a fun little tour around False Creek after spending a day perusing and shopping on Granville Island. You can stay on for the whole tour or get off at designated stops. Big bang for your buck- I enjoyed it very much.

Like False Creek Ferries, these folks are super-dependable, friendly, and really excellent in their customer relations- so polite!

This is one of the best attractions in Vancouver (in my opinion). For under $10 per person, you can take the Aquabus from Granville Island all the way around the harbour and then just continue on back to your original destination. For me, this is such a relaxing and exceptional way of sightseeing in Vancouver, I can't wait to do... More

very inexpensive, a great way to get to Granville Island from downtown. There are several routes you can take on the ferries, you might want to buy a book of tickets so you can revisit. As a local, I often take the ferry over to do a little shopping. Granville Island market is great for fresh food, theatre, great eateries,... More

Nice way to get to the island. Coming back we wanted off close to Chinatown. (Skip it!) but the boat driver couldn't or wouldn't stop nearby. He dropped us at another stop saying it was 2 minutes further. Hah! He fibbed.

We used the aquabus ferries twice. Once to travel to Granville Island. The second time was to get to the train station as we were leaving Vancouver. We had our suitcases with us. It was far more convenient and quicker than riding a bus our a light rail. We were given information about Vancouver as we rode. It is a... More

Used the aquabus to get over to North Vancouver for our bus ride up to Capilano suspension bridge. Convenient, easy and a nice way to cross with good views.
