Nice ride!

Take it round trip for a water ride and hop on hop off. Small fare, good opportunity to see the water sports in progress.

Excellent way to see various attractions in Vancouver. The Olympic Village is particularly interesting and worthy of a stop.

Just remember where to catch Aquabus on way back. It is only about 5 minutes to get across to market and i do not know if there is any other way to get there.

Sitting with a gelato on Granville island, and wondering how to get home, I was pleased to discover that the Aquabus would bring us within a 5 minute walk of our hotel, which is right near the soccer stadium and hockey rink. The staff were very helpful, quite chatty, and it turned into an economical way to get around town... More

Rapid and regular trips across the creek - if one stop is particularly busy they call for additional transport. A well run service and a great little tourist experience.

We took the Aquabus with our bikes as we biked around Vancouver over the Canada Long weekend. Picked up on Granville Island and took us over to the walkway. There was a slight wait but it was a busy holiday. Loved it.

Great to check out different part of Vancouver downtown from Grandville island. Kids friendly and low fare.

Take the all day ticket and travel with the aqua bus during different light conditions over False Creek. Excellent for sun set travel!

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.
