A neat experience

A neat experience, seeing all False Creek from the water. Took us to Yaletown and then we caught it back to Granville Island. A little pricey but for the experience it's fun.

Stayed at the Hampton Inn which was a short walk to the pick up point. aquabus took us to Granville Island with a few stops in between. Pretty cheap ride and great views. Much better than driving there or taking a regular cab.

Aquabus is amazing! We took the little ferries few times during our stay. Every time it was simple, cheap and fast. They picked us up even with bikes and stroller, no problem. The kids enjoyed the short trips and with a bit of luck you can discover seals and other animals or you just want to get an overview about... More

We took the aquabus for the short ride to Granville Island and returned on it after. It was a great novelty and quite inexpensive and a great alternative to an otherwise long hot walk!

We have used the Aquabus a few times during our stay. Each time the operators were welcoming, informative and very helpful. I enjoyed the trips and found it an excellent way to see another side of this beautiful city.

We love travelling in the Aquabus as we can see all around False Creek and what's happening. We saw a water cyclist, mother and baby dolphin among other boaties, paddle boarders and kayakers. Kids love it probably as much as we do!

Great way to get around in a fun way to attractions. The boat pilot was a hoot. He described all the must see sights and gave us fantastic directions for Granville Island.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Aquabus! It is so impressive how many modes of transportation are available in Vancouver. Love it there!

They called it a ferry but it's really a little water taxi! Take it over to Granville Island. Blink and you're there. Definitely worth the trip, because you don't need to drive to Granville, and you definitely don't want to walk it! (We walked from the other side of Vancouver to the Aquabus, and then took the Aquabus over to... More

With parking on Granville Island getting harder and harder to find, this little ferry is a great option to go across False Creek. Why not take a little tour as well? Good frequency in the summer. You won't wait long for the next sailing.
