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!

if you are using public transportation to go to or from the North Shore...then the Seabus is the right option...

Always reliable for me as far as schedule goes; every 15 minutes daily and makes travel around much easier.

Usual use is routine. Go into town on business. Should be more frequent. Say 15 min from open to close. Doesn't match well with early YVR flights. Bathroom facilities at both ends have been out of service for quite some time.

Part of the Vancouver rapid transit system, the Seabus connects North Vancouver's, Lonsdale Quay to downtown Vancouver. If you are visiting the city consider staying or parking in the much less expensive North Vancouver area and visiting downtown using this quick inexpensive option.

Joan Thornley was not working today but did acquaint with Asian clerk named Diane. Very friendly and well acquainted with Joan. Told her I met Joan fifty years ago when she was a Christmas helper at the post office.

A great way for tourists to get to the North Shore while having a mini Harbour cruise. Clean, efficient and regular service.

Translink's Seabus system, which is primarily a downtown-to-North Vancouver commuter link, is also a "don't miss" budget harbour tour! On midday crossings of Vancouver harbour – which take around 10 - 15 minutes – it's commonplace to see tourists up a against the windows and snapping photos of the Vancouver skyline and North Shore mountains.
