We used this to hop on-hop off at Granville Island, Mahoneys Bar at Stamps Landing Dock (cold craft beers and wonderful views from their upper deck) and the Chinatown and the Dr Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Gardens from the Village Dock. The only thing to note...More

We always make a point of going to Granville Island via the Aquabus. The service is frequent, and the locations to catch one are well located.

There is a stop on the trolley for this attraction. Good way to get to Granville Island via False Bay. Price is affordable

So handy! Never met a captain that wasn't friendly and helpful. Good locations around the city for drop off and pick up - never had to wait for long before one bobbed into sight.

We had a boat all to ourselves so we were able to get a private tour by the captain who was very entertaining. Highly recommend taking the Aquabus.

Good way to have a look around False Bay., especially if it's not raining. Cheap as chips and very little waiting.

The Aquabus can be accessed from many areas including points along False Creek. It's really easy to find an Aquabus station. You can go from False Creek to Granville Island and then sail back in just a few minutes.

My family loved being able to walk to the Aquabus from the hotel and spend the day on the island. The staff was friendly and the taxi came very quickly and promptly.

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
