We would have never gone on the water had we not seen this quick way to get back to Yaletown. It was really fun getting to see the city from a different angle. The wait time was short and the ride was the perfect length. It was a great way to rest our legs after a long day of walking.

These little vessels bomb around the downtown waterways providing easy access to all the fair weather hotspots including Granville Island.

The Aquabus was a very convenient way to travel to Granville Island. It shuttles people constantly between downtown and the island so there is little time wasted waiting. Price was reasonable.

This is a great way to get to Granville Island from Yaletown. The skippers are great and so helpful. Would definitely recommend using them as a way of getting around.

The little Aquabus ferries are quite a thrill to ride and the "Captains" are normally very friendly and sociable. It is a great way to see some of Vancouver from the water while you hop over to your next destination. It might be a little expensive for regular use, but on a nice day it is an easy hop between...

The Aquabus service is brilliant. It picks up in various locations along False Creek, which is great if you've had enough of walking (its a long way from Kits Beach to Granville Island on foot but lovely scenery!). We saw lots of 'Bus' stops along the way, and we got one from Granville Island to The Village as we decided... More

The aquabus was very expensive. It had limited stops. The driver was rude and abrupt. You are better off using the Vancouver Transit system for a fraction of the cost.

A quick trip via the Aquabus and you are taken to and from Vancouver and Granville Island. Avoid the parking hassles (limited parking on the island) and simply take the Aquabus.

I was visiting Vancouver, was looking very forward to trying several of the local beers, however, transportation was a problem (not willing to drive after drinking, especially when I am a guest in another country). Found the Aquabus, I was a little hesitant at first, was worried it would be too cheesy, but it turned out to be extremely convenient,... More

So easy - hop on at one of the easy to find stops, helpful staff explained the best ticket to buy, very quick trip to Granville Island and then a nice scenic return, much longer route over to Plaza by the stadium.
