What's not to like about a tiny boat that takes 12 passengers on a quick ride across False Creek? Great way to get too and from Granville Island.

A ride on the Aquabus is a very economical way to view False Creek from the water side for very little bucks. One can ride from Sunset Beach to Science World back to the heritage boat marina at Kitsilano Point for about CAD 6.00. A very wonderful experience on a hot summer's day. I prefer to disembark at Granville Island... More

Very reasonably priced. Just hop on and off. Takes you to all the interesting places. The drivers are great and full of knowledge. Will do it again next time.

Is your partner constantly nagging you to go on a cruise. You have no desire. Here is the compromise. Affordable, scenic, romantic, many choices for dining, cruise for as long or as short as you like. Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the Aquabus is the way to see Vancouver, Granville Island, Olympic Village,... More

Walked 3 blocks from our hotel to the Aquabus stop to travel across to Granville Island. Service was frequent and the staff were very friendly. The Aquabus also has a 25 minute trip that goes to 8 separate points along False Creek, would have been nice to do this but had to go elsewhere after returning from Granville Island.

We were not sure where to get on the Aquabus, but once the bus came we were good to go. The ride was comfortable and our driver was very friendly and knew a lot of good places to go in Vancouver. Her advice alone was worth the fair of the taxi.

The Aquabus offers a great vantage for seeing the City o Vancouver. The boats are convenient and frequent. I enjoy using the service to go to Granville Island. On summer evenings, being on the Aquabus is a beautiful place to be while enjoying the sunset

We had fun on the Aquabus even tho we only went from Granville Island back to the Aquatic Centre dock. So handy to get on and off and they are smooth. Great views going under the Burrard Bridge.

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
