No waterslides on these cruise liners. They are small, cute, and provide a quick scenic cruise to multiple harbourside destinations. Best bit of fun for cheap cost around Vancouver area. Sometimes I park on Westside of Vancouver just to take ferry across to Granville Island. Get on the water and see Vancouver from a different perspective.

Taking one of the colorful open-air but covered Aqua Buses to Granville Island will likely be one of the lasting enjoyable memories you take back from visiting Vancouver. Not only is Granville Island itself a wonderful and exciting experience, the Aqua Bus adds a sense of adventure of its own. It's inexpensive, safe, and is available throughout the day. Go... More

I used to take regularly. My dgtr lived in North Van and worked right downtown. Always regular and the time was accurate. Clean and could take the dog.

The price is adequate, the staff is nice, the skyline is beautiful and the trip over False Creek is very peaceful - a ride on the aquabus makes your trip to Vancouver complete and adds something different to your citytrip!

The boats are bath tubs really but the perfect way to get around various points on False Creek or to Kitsilano beach and Granville island. Great views over the city from a different vantage point and beats walking ;).

It was rainy Sunday afternoon and we thought why not ride the Aquabus for just fun. The driver happened to be waiting in line for his next duty, and he recommended for tour of 20 minutes. We end up having 20 minutes of interesting informational, educational ride. Nice service to get around different sections of Vancouver.

Staying in Granville Island & Fairview

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
