We love taking the Aquabus when we visit Science World or Granville Island with the kids. It's a great way to explore the area and the kids love being able to view the city from the water.

Great way to get around and see Vancouver from the water. Hop off at Granville Island for lunch and unique shopping.

Took the Aquabus from Vancouver to Granville Island on one of these bibly bobbly boats. A very fast trip and a good view of False Creek Harbour. Fun and efficient and much better than a bus or driving

Who can beat the fare for an inexpensive tour of false creek. Excellent way to get to Granville Island and back for tourists and locals.

The Aquabus service is similar to False Creek Ferry. Aquabus has pick-up at the bottom of Davie street which is easily accessbile to the Canada Line

not that expensive and a wonderful way to enjoy the Riverview of Vancouver City. It is just a couple of minutes to get to 8 different places. Nice hints from the crew where to go next and what is interesting to see

It's a speedy little trip across the waterway and was very pleasant. It was $3.50 one way or $6.00 for a round-trip. Keep your ticket for the return trip handy.

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
