We had a Compass pass so the Seabus was a quick way to cross the bay from Canada Place to Lonsdale Quay in north Vancouver and then the return journey. From there we took a bus to explore north Vancouver.

For a touristic town like Vancouver B.C. it's not attractive enough Turkish seabus is a better example

Taking the Seabus between Vancouver's downtown and the North Shore is a routine matter for many commuters, but it's a nice novelty for anyone who wants to be freely on foot downtown.

They don't muck around.....on time ferry service, quick trip (less than 15 min) service to and from N. Van. Highly recommend this transport. Compaq pass is the easiest way to travel but day passes or per trip passes also available.

This is a good quick way to get across the bay from Canada place to Lonsdale quay in north Vancouver. Just use a compass day pass card for this. It was easy to get on and off. It was clean and only took 15 mins to cross the bay. You had to sit down all the way across. Could get... More

Easy way to get to Lonsdale, good views of Vancouver Skyline, interesting Market. The new Compass Passes make it so easy to ride all the Transit Systems with a day pass.

Used when visiting lonsdale quay in February 2015 one am. For $2.50 we used took the Canada line to waterfront and caught the seabus. Very smooth ride and seemed to carry many passengers, but not overly full that day. Probably more so in summertime. Then we took the seabus to return back to downtown Vancouver on the same ticket since... More

My daughter lives in North Vancouver and we were heading into the city. A walk down the hill brought us to the Seabus........What a fantastic, quick, cheap, efficient way to travel. The Seabus caters for everyone including our four legged friends. A must do when in Vancouver!!!!

It's a ferry that runs back and forth from the mainland to the north shore. Hard to review but if you are looking to kill some time this will work. Kids will love it and it comes every 15 minutes most times of the day.

A better option than traditional transit. Gets me from downtown to North Van in a snap. Runs every 15 minutes during the day. Nothing fancy but definitely convenient!
