Love going to Granville on the aqua bus. Nice chilled way to travel in Vancouver. Loved to see the city with a new point of view, perspective.

Took the aqua bus round trip from Hornby to Granville with our 2 young kids. Didn’t have to wait more than a few minutes for the aqua bus to arrive. The operators were so friendly, helped us load and unload our baby strollers. Yes can pay on their website or they take cash and credit on board.

Great Way to Get Around

This is my favorite public transit in town and we used it to go to many places on the waterfront. Quick and efficient and a great way to observe the skyline.

We had the pleasure of being escorted by Captain Eric on his Aqua Bus Vessel. Although our Friday night was cut short, Erique remained professional throughout; refusing our drinks and other offers. He was knowledgeable, polite, and just the right height.

Overall, great endeavor, and will definitely be returning for the Captain Air-ic Crusade.

When your feet hurt...

take the Aquabus around False Creek for a nice little tour. You catch nice sights of Metro Vancouver and the mountains behind and you can disembark at any of the spots and keep going later on.

Excellent minus one detail

Really good and reasonably priced, but False Creek Ferries (the only competition up to my knowledge) will take you all the way to Kitsilano Beach. Aquabus doesn't go that far.

Excellent Way to Get Around
Feb. 2020
We used this water transport like a street bus to get around the city. It took us to many destinations. Helped that there was a stop just outside our hotel. Lots of fun and great views of the city from the water.
