The Aquabus is a fun and convenient way to get around the False Creek area. They run frequently, are very reliable, and the operators are very friendly and helpful.

No bells and whistles but it's a nice way to see the habour. You can hop off at Granville Island or continue on to Stamp's Landing and have a drink at Mahoney & Sons. You can stop at the Yaletown dock or continue on and see the whole habour. It's a nice change of scenery other than being in a... More

Great idea, almost all downtown places you can visit by boat. Nice not only for children. Olympic village, science Center, socker and ice-hockey halls and many other places you can see by this hop on-hop off boat.

I took the Aquabus which is a ferry to the Night market to check out the vendors and music. It was also great to just sit outside by the water and people watch

A very convenient way to get from one side or end of False Creek to the other. Some of the ferries carry bicycles as well.

They have 8 stops in the False Creek area. People working on board are friendly, young, and energetic. Aquabus HO must have an excellent Human Resources Department with good recruiting process. I don't have an idea how much they get paid but sure hope that ther are compensated fairly.

I often walk from downtown to the south side of False Creek. The Aquabus seems and is a great extension to the many great pedestrian and cycling pathways.

We used the Aquabus to travel between Hornby St and Granville island and return. The fare was 5.50 dollars each return, which for minute crossing I thought was rather steep. I didn't ask if we were able to go further around False Creek for what we had paid. All I know it saved us a bit of walking to get... More

It was a short trip from Granville Island to a Stanley Park. Didn't have to wait long and not that expensive

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
