Reviewed October 8, 2012

We didn't have to wait around for the ferry at all, the operators were incredibly helpful and the ride was so fast! It was a great value for the money as well.

“A different way of seeing the City.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Really loved using the service. It was great to be able to hop and off at different places and see a lot more of the City. Especially good if you are walking everywhere. Ferry Pilots were really helpful and cheerful. Cost was very good as well. This is definately worth using for a different view and experience.

“Pleasurable trips around the bay”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

From the bottom of Granville street we hopped on the aquabus and for $5 headed across to Granville Island to check out the shops and the brewery. From there, another $4 took us over to Vanier Park to watch the Bard on the Beach. The convenience, to avoid taxis or renting a car, was great. The two pilots? were super helpful and knowledgeable. Great little service.

“Aquabus Ferries are cute”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

A fantastic way to get around. These small little covered ferries were a nice feature to the water front. The ticket price was a bit pricey if you were not staying on and just going to point a to b. But overall it helped me to get from Yaletown to Granville Is.

“Cheap and convenient transport and sightseeing”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

These little craft buzz about the harbour area and transport you across the waterv to Granville Island and other stops. If you stay on it is a good sightseeing tour
