“Great ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We take this regularly . We catch it from Granville Island over to the city side, and then ride back to where we parked. They accommodate bikes, and it's a cheap and fun way to get back and forth. Great views of the city, and if you keep your eye out, you might spot a seal!

“Even locals feel like they're on vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

What a treat to step on one of these aquabusi and plow through the harbour to Granville Island, escaping the traffic and living for a moment on the water, passing all the rich people's yachts that never leave the marinas. It's one way to pretend your a tourist and rediscover what a wonderful city Vancouver is.
