Vancouver offers rich art and culture, and easy access to amazing countryside—but exploring independently without your own transportation can be a challenge. With this sightseeing ticket, spin through the city on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus and trolley tour, and hit the sites at your own pace. Visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge or Grouse Mountain, and escape the busy city into Canada’s beautiful wilderness.

Our friends from New Zealand were visiting and we went to Granville Island and took the ferry over to Stanley Park. This is a great tourist feature. Trip is short and inexpensive but the views are fantastic.

They accept credit cards (Visa and MasterCard) and debit cards at their Granville Island dock, this is a good point to start if you want round trip fares, I believe it’s cash only on the boat for journeys from other docks.
