If you have bikes and want to connect with the mainland from the likes of Granville Island you can buy a single for $3.50 or a day pass for a little more. Really awesome way to view either side of the creek.

We are visiting Vancouver and wanted to get to Granville Island without a vehicle. It was an easy walk from downton through Yale Town to David Lam Park. The Aquabus was easy to navigate. We bought tickets on the water bus.

I have been riding these for 35 years and it never gets old. You get out on the water and can thrill young and old alike for $3.00 how do you go wrong?

Expensive to cross the water but very convenient and fast. If you are staying downtown, walk down to one of the terminals - I took the one near the Burrard Bridge. Just a couple of minutes and you are at Granville Island. Lots of Departure...More

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
