I have used this service many times from fairview slopes to Granville island or from either of those points over to Urban Fare in Yaletown. Apparently the water of false creek is dirty though so don't dip fingers in.....

This is a great way to bounce around the False Creek area. You can hop on and off to visit sites, restaurants or shopping. It is a nice way to stay out of the crazy traffic and see some of downtown for a different perspective.

We only made a short trip to visit Granville island and would repeat the 5 minute experience. These are only rowing boat sized however and not for the hesitant of step. If you are old - like me - and have to take care stepping...More

The staff are very helpful and friendly. It's a great way to get around False Creek and over to Granville Island from downtown. It likes a mini-vacation

We took the aquabus to get from Granville Island to Science World. It was great seeing the bridges and buildings while aboard this vessel.

Granville Island & Fairview
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

Hi Ellen. Thanks for your review of the Aquabus. We will be staying at 111 Robson Street, downtown Vancouver in 4 weeks and would like to go to Grandville Island for supper at the the Sandbar. Do you know how late the Aquabus runs and what age qualifies for a senior? Our group is 56, 56, 56 and 58. Do you need to purchase tickets ahead? Thanks for your help, Deb

I think all of your questions can be answered at their website. You can also email them.
Can you hop on from any of the stops, or do you have to get on at the first stop? Thank you

I thought the Aquabus was just for the False Creek area.....Does it go to N. Van and Lonsdale Quay?....or it that the SeaBus (Ferry)?
