Took the Aquabus from Yaletown to Granville Market. What a great way to see False Creek...we passed very near Arthur Erikson's condo building, the painted silos, and boats moored at the marina. A very unique experience; do not miss it if you are in Vancouver. We liked it so much we took the Aquabus in the other direction toward English... More

I love Granville Island and all its places of interest and use it as a base camp..Every so often I take the Aqua bus to all the other ferry stopover points and have a drink a meal or just a wee coffee break and enjoy these areas. It is a must if you are a visitor especially if you have... More

Nothing more funky than traveling around town by boat, even if you've got nowhere to go it's just worth taking the ride. A ride on one of these buses gives you a very unique perspective of Vancouver.

$10 for a return fare - not bad! And a fun way to get around we travelled from the Science Centre to Granville Island and back again. Only complaint - no seating, and after walking 6 hrs around Granville Island I could've used a sit down!

A fun way to travel False Creek. The operators are easy going and some can share a lot of information. This is a fast way because they'll ask you where you are going and adjust the trip to their clients' needs (it can be confusing if your think you're boarding from x and going to y according to the map,...

What a great way to scoot around form point to point on the False Creek. Furthermore, our grandson loved it as well. Some of the lines were long during the heat of the summer but at some points there was no,waits at all. The narrative by some of the staff is fun as week.

Feels strange to potter over False Creek to Granville Island on the little boat,but it saves the legs, and gives a nice view of the boats and bridges.

This has to be one of the best ways to get to Granville Island from the downtown. What could be better than being on the water while the friendly drivers chat you up? The only thing wrong with the service is that its almost too short and then its over. I hate to leave. :)
