If your intent is to go sightseeing on the water, the Aquabus doesn't serve that purpose. I was disappointed. The one we took on Saturday, May 6th didn't have open windows (they have a plastic cover all around it). I wanted to feel the breeze...More

I love the aqua bus experience. You will get the BEST views of the city and one of our best bridges from the boat and it is affordable and a great novelty. As a local, I do not always use it as it is cheaper...More

A fabulous way to see Vancouver from the water. Take a grand tour of False Creek, inexpensive & pleasant, OR just use the Aquabus to back & forth from Granville Island.

This is cool! It's a clean, restful and easy experience. Glad we did it. Lots of seating, a good amount of walking to disembark, but so what, it was worth it.

We have visited Vancouver several times but never on The Aquabus on Falsecreek. I was initially disappointed about the all day price for seniors so we only took the 40 minute ferry ride. Other competition at the dock had nicer looking boats without all the...More

We were staying at a downtown hotel and wanted to go to Granville Island. We walked to the pick up site at the Plaza of Nations and in a few minutes the Aquabus arrived. The driver was very helpful in telling us about Granville Island...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
