We were heading to Granville Is and this service which was cheap was so easy and on the way back we just missed one ferry but they were back in less than 10 mins.

Really nice and pleasant way of getting to some of the not so easy areas to reach ie Granville Island.

The service is advertised as coming every 10minutes. They sell you a ticket, herd you towards the water like cattle, and I have been standing here for over 35 minutes. All other lines have moved multiple times. Girl is apologetic, but seriously wish I had...More

We used Aquabus for a harbour tour and whilst it was a pleasant enough ride it would have been improved with a commentary of some kind. Maybe there should have been but the crew were too busy talking to one another to worry too much.

Runs every 5 or so minutes between different dropoff points. Cost is reasonable but most of all its fun!

A nice way to get to points around the false Creek area and not just to the island and back. Does not take much time and while pretty utilitarian it is a boat and thus more fun than a bus.

I was a little hesitant to take my 7 month old on the ferry with his stroller. The drivers made me feel relaxed and helped by lifting my son's stroller on board. He loved the ride and so did my friend from out of town!

This is not an attraction. It's a useful, utilitarian way to get around the False Creek area. If you need to get somewhere and this ferry is going your way, it's easy and painless. There's no reason to go out of your way to ride...More

A great way to get around. It is cute and fun. Buy the day pass and stay on the boat for a tour of the whole harbour. You can even take bikes on the big boats.

This summer biking around Vancouver from one side of the city to another is amazing and safe...but if you stop at Granville Island for a bite on your way back from Jericho Beach and you don't feel like taking Burrard bridge, take the Aquabus, It...More

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

Hi not really sure as I lived in the area and don't drive. You can get free street parking if you move out of the downtown area. Not sure what they charge at the skytrain stations, but great advice from the Australian that... More
