“A great way to see Vancouver Harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Many tourists do not realize it but the sea bus can be visited with the same ticket you use for the Sky Train or bus. Let the kids go right to the front for best views of sea planes barges and boats. On the other side is an enjoyable walk along the water and a wonderful market. You can use the same ticket to get back if it has not expired.

“wrong photos”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

So many mismatched pictures on here. Not only are the first few pictures not of the Sea bus but they are not even in Vancouver. In other categories as well.

“Seabus Stampede!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Took the Seabus to North Vancouver to site see. There was a human stampede to get on and a similar one to get off. On the Vancouver side while waiting for the Seabus, some guy put a filled backpack on the floor and then disappeared. My wife and I weren't the only ones that questioned this. A security person was called who came over and looked at it and did absolutely nothing! Real nice since it was on Good Friday!

“Very convenient and organized mode of transport...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We enjoyed a ride on SeaBus when we travelled to North Vancouver. If you coming by Skytrain to waterfront station, you have to walk within the terminal building to get to SeaBus departing port.

The ticket price for a single journey is $2.75. But if you will be using public transport for the day it’s advisable to buy a day pass which just cost $9.75 which is a great advantage. It provides unlimited transit use on all buses, SkyTrain and SeaBus for one day from the start of the first transit service to the end of the service day. You can use it for travel through all zones.

It’s a very cool link of public transport which is very much organized as Metro or buses. There's a timer mounted at several locations, counting the seconds until the boat departs. There are vending machines at the departing area, clean toilets and an average space for people to queue up for boarding. Seabus operates between Waterfront in downtown to Lonsdale quay in North Vancouver. Travel time is roughly around 12minutes and it departs every 15min.

They ferry is only passenger ferry and not for vehicles but I have seen people with their bicycle.

It’s one of the best mode to travel to north side of the city.

“Great way to approach the city from north Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We took the free shuttle to Capilano Suspension Bridge park from Canada place, and finished earlier than the return shuttle schedule, so took the 236 bus to the No. Vancouver SeaBus Terminal, and were able to walk right on to the Seabus ferry with the same ticket. Very convenient, with well coordinated schedules. Nice view of the Vancouver waterfront on the short ride across the water.
