Went with the family - it was ok and it is similar to Granville Island. You have food, shops and a view. The Seabus is there too and a good way to travel into town. The kids like it because they could watch the container ships being pulled along and just generally watching the world go by.

Lonsdale Quay Market is very similar to Granville Island during the summer just on a smaller scale. The advantage of Lonsdale is that there is plenty of parking and no access issues. With the Seabus running back and forth this is an easy market to visit weather you are driving or on foot. The market is great with an assortment... More

From Water station take the the ferry so you can enjoy the view. Once there you could find from local handicrafts to spices, coffee, great bakeries and mexican grocieries. Vancouver's skyline view is unbeatable from here.

The Quay contains a fabulous assortment of shops and eateries. The location is excellent, on the northern shore of the Vancouver inner harbour. Taking the sea us from downtown Vancouver to Lonsdale Quay is easy and fun. A quick trip across the harbour gives you a wonderful view of Vancouver and the north shore. Exploring the unique shops is fun.... More

so much to see at this pier. The markets, places to eat, and the view across the bay are wonderful. A great place to come and taste test different things. Parking is the only fee.

Take the sea bus from the downtown waterfront station … great views of the harbour and cruise ships. Lots of interesting little shops and great places to purchase your lunch. I always visit (and make a purchase) at the Blue Teapot when I am there …

This is not an attraction. It is a food court at a bus stop.There is nothing going on there. The building is old and there is nowhere to sit and enjoy the view of downtown Vancouver or north shore mountains. Its better then nothing when getting on the sea bus, but would never go there otherwise.

"The Quay (pronounced 'kee' but some say 'kay or qway') is an institution here in North Vancouver. It is our own version of the popular Granville Island Market. H'ere you can find everything from shiatsu to fresh fruit, fresh fish, fresh flowers, sushi, B.C. wines, an amazing kids' toy shop near the fountain, ice cream, a brew pub, bread shop,... More

This is the market the locals use. It has all the same basic features of the more touristy Granville Island but is much more easily accessible from the main downtown hotels. In particular if you're there on a Friday evening there is a North Vancouver waterfront night market there from May through October. If you are in a downtown hotel... More

The market is a nice small market and the vendors inside seemed friendly when we walked through, but the it is the view out front across to Vancouver and the ride to and from on the Sea Bus that were most interesting. Construction made it a bit of a wander to get to the otherwise pretty park nearby that was... More
