Great way to see the Town

Take the aqua bus and get a better view of the town with an all day pass a good cost efficient way to get around

I like to combine Stanley Park, English Bay, False Creek and Granville Island as one ride...stop on GI for veggies and supplies or a bite to eat...has many restaurants and snacks places.

We didn't spend a whole lot of time here, but there was plenty of shopping, food, and history for those who enjoy these type of excursions.
