It's such a pleasure to get around False Creek and stop at different venues while exploring Vancouver. From Granville Island to the Olympic Village with lots to do and see at stops in between as well, it's a great little West Coast experience.

We took a trip across to Granville Island and it was a great inexpensive way to see Vancouver from a different angle.

Regular bus service to Granville Island, a pleasant way to travel across from town to the island and explore the market and restaurants

Great way to get from North Vancouver to downtown quickly and affordably. Great service, no line ups. A true pleasure and a great way to see some great scenery along the way.

The aquabus is certainly the most interesting way to go to Granville Island market. From a number of points along False Creek, the aquabus ill take you to Granville Island market of to the Maritime museum. Relaxing, scenic and cheap, a greatt eay to relax for a while in the heart of Vancouver. Lots of yachts and boats to see... More

Cute little boats scurry you across False Creek and stop at a few places. You can go from the market to the west end and end up at a restaurant for dinner.

so fun and quicker than the bridge! I highly recommend!~ You can either pay cash or card 2.50 per person. we only took one way so may be cheaper for round trip!

Granville Island can unfortunately be a bit awkward to get to by bus, I lived in Vancouver for years and never took the seabus, but recently on a rainy day when I was in Yaletown I decided to hop on. The drivers are lovely, trip is easy, and its a nice added treat when you're going to/from Granville Island

Four of us were visiting Vancouver for the weekend and decided to make a trip to Granville Island! We took the Aquabus. Not only was the boat fun but the view of the city was terrific. It is a bit pricey but it is worth the splurge. Highly recommend!

Staying in Granville Island & Fairview

Neighbourhood Profile
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 wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
