“Great transportation and lovely experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It is a quick and easy way to cross the water and avoid the uphill slopes of the bridges. Lots of people use these ferries to take groceries home from Granville Island or to shorten their walk to work in the downtown core, the sea wall, or Stanley Park.

“These are fun for the whole family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

There is a sense of merriment on the ferries, and a MUST to visit Granville Island. Be sure to get a return ticket. Enjoy the ride; it is better than the alternative: an expensive taxi over the bridge.

“Perfect way to get to Granville Island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

I take my grandchildren on the aquabus to have a little trip around False Creek. You can get off at a number of sights, Science World, Yaletown, Sunset Beach and of course Granville Island, almost as good as a hop on hop off bus. You can also just take a little circle tour and it is very reasonable. If you are a senior, don't forget to tell them! It is very cheap!

“Fun, fast, cheap, good way to see the sights & get around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

No visit to Vancouver is complete without a trip on the aquabus across to Granville island, or round & about.
Captains are always very friendly & cheerful.
The boats are so cute, we always hum the "Captain Pugwash" theme tune when we are on board!.
Every city should have these little gems.
