take the Aquabus around False Creek for a nice little tour. You catch nice sights of Metro Vancouver and the mountains behind and you can disembark at any of the spots and keep going later on.

Really good and reasonably priced, but False Creek Ferries (the only competition up to my knowledge) will take you all the way to Kitsilano Beach. Aquabus doesn't go that far.

We used this water transport like a street bus to get around the city. It took us to many destinations. Helped that there was a stop just outside our hotel. Lots of fun and great views of the city from the water.

Ah, the Vancouver Aquabus! For the past 34 years, these little rainbow-coloured boats – which some have described as resembling a child’s bath toy – have been ferrying tourists, commuters and casual riders to various points of interest along the False Creek area. Instantly recognizable, these little vessels are cute, efficient and provide for a fun and scenic way to see Vancouver from a new vantage point. Indeed, if you’re strapped for time, the Aquabus allows you to see key sites in fairly short order and for a good rate (day pass is just $16). There are 8 stops in total: Hornby Street, Granville Island, David Lam Park, Stamps Landing, Spyglass Place, Yaletown, Plaza of Nations, and The Village. While all of these stops aren’t necessarily of interest for visitors (some are residential areas), I’d recommend: Hornby: Getting off here allows you easy access to downtown Vancouver. You’re also within walking distance of the popular English Bay and Stanley Park. Granville Island: This stop is pretty self-explanatory. In short, Granville Island is a major attraction, for both tourists and locals. Home to a plethora of shops and delightful eateries, the crown jewel here is the Public Market. It’s quite easy to spend the better part of a whole day exploring this area of Vancouver. Best of all, the Aquabus allows you to do it without having to worry about parking or spending a small fortune on a taxi. For more information about Granville Island, please see my earlier review on this site. Yaletown: One of Vancouver’s trendiest neighbourhoods. This area is known for its popular restaurants and heritage vibe. Plaza of Nations: This area has been around since Expo ’86. It’s a little quieter now that the Edgewater Casino closed in September 2017; however, it’s still a noteworthy stop in that you’ll be within striking distance of BC Place and lovely Chinatown. The Village: Arriving at Olympic Village Square, you can visit Science World; or wander towards historic Pacific Central Station and Thornton Park. For me, this stop represents a nice synthesis of the historic and progressive city. In short, the Vancouver Aquabus serves as a gateway and entry point to popular attractions. For me, though, a big part of the Aquabus experience is simply being able to tootle about False Creek and soak in all the sights from the water. There’s no traffic, there’s no honking horns – only calm.
