For a $9.75 all day pass you can hop around the area and go from Granville Island to Yaletown, Plaza of Nations (Edgewater Casino) and the Village plus a few smaller stops. Along the way you can see a few houseboats and couple of nice boats docked outside the Yaletown stop. Was fortunate to be there one evening during a... More

A fabulous little money spinner - back and forth hundreds of times a day for $3.50 a pop for the punter. Possibly a 2 minute trip. A lovely trip. Not complaining. Just envious of the lifestyle choice:-)

A great concept but let down by lack of clarity on fare availability. We did a Granville Island 'there and back' from the Stadium. It was expensive. I am sure there were other fares available but the was little signage.

This is a just do as part of a days outing, we caught sky train to the ferry terminal near science world, a 10 minute picturesque walk and then waited only a few minutes and had a really friendly person and great service., kids loved.

I like the closeness to the harbor, relaxing start/ end of day travel. Friendly drivers, and often good conversations with fellow passengers.

The Aquabus Tour of False Creek is great. See the 2010 Vancouver Olympic village, BC Place Stadium and the globe sculpture from the water on the grand Aquabus tour from Granville Island. Then visit the shops and eating booths. The Salmon Pot Pie at A La Mode was unique and delicious.

We were thinking of traveling via this to Granville Island but it was $15 for an all day pass that only covered the Granville surrounding areas (not Stanley Park). The 'bus' looked more like a raft that would not really hold up. So we skipped.

Ferry crossing are about three to four blocks apart, so very handy from any direction from down town. Pricing can seem expensive just reading their pricing list and if you're alone it is but in a group, it's great. They travel quickly and your wait time seems no longer then 5 to 7 minutes if you're looking to return to... More

short ride - not worth the money.liked the ambience of being on the sea but if you are not going far cheaper to go by bus.
