For 8 bucks CA got a great tour of the waterfront and some great pilots. If you want to see Vancouver from a totally different perspective, get on at Granville Island and take the 25 minute tour.

Drops you of in the heart of Granville Island. Runs constantly from Vancouver so you don't have a 'cattle call'.

I mainly used the Aquabus to get around from Granville Island to downtown. But it's also fun to just go for a quick tour of False Creek. Kids love the little ferries, as they have big windows for great views of the water and other boats.

It's cheap, fast, picturesque and stops in great places - including Granville Island. What more could you want?

Great way to get around, stations have boats that run every 15 minutes; Granville Island is a must do! Captains are super nice, wish they went everywhere

Jest a water taxi, looks like a little tub, but a nice way to see the city from the water and to get over to Granville island on a round trip ticket

neat and quick transit across the water but beware what time they finish - 2130 latest, 2100 for False Creek ferry.

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.
