“Fun way to view the city”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We took the Aquabus one sunny day from Granville Island to Yaletown. It's a beautiful way to see the city from another perspective and an enjoyable way to get around. Also fun to see people kayaking and sailing.

“Ferry to North Vancouver”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

It is a normal ferry and it's safe, clean. Avoid the rush hours because it is used by commuters. Very inexpensive way to get across the water.

“They overcharge...if they feel they can get away with it. Tourists BEWARE!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

They're are a cute asset to Vancouver and False Creek, but be aware that they do not publish their fares on the ferry or stops, and do try to overcharge if they feel they can get away with it. Tourists BEWARE!

“short and sweet”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a nice quick efficient way of getting back and forth between beach area of Vancouver over to Granville Island. Inexpensive way to get a view fron the water for tourists and locals alike. The trips are very short and sweet, but time can be spent on Granville Island.

“Novel way to cross the water”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

These little aquabuses are quite novel. They seat about 12 people and chug along slowly across to various parts of Vancouver. We only had one other family, so plenty of room. Very affordable and we would use them again. We went from Granville Island back to downtown. Nice little trip.
