There is only one type of travel pass, issued by the Venice transport authority, ACTV, and available for different lengths of time. You have a choice of a 72-hour pass or a 7-day (actually 168 hour) pass. Given the small difference in price, take the 7-day pass which will cover your entire visit.

The Travel Card ACTV entitles you to unlimited use of the waterbuses (vaporetti) serving Venice and the islands of the lagoon, and to unlimited use of ACTV Mestre land bus service to and from Venice and in Mestre itself—and land buses on Lido.

ACTV Tourist Travel Cards, which can be purchased either on line, at the airport, in Mestre, or in Venice, are a tremendous bargain that will pay for themselves many times over during your visit to Venice. Although the on line discount is no longer available, the links below will provide information about cost and card selection, regardless of where you plan to make your purchase.

ACTV buses taken from the airport now cost €6—or €4 if purchased with the ACTV Tourist Travel Card.

So the answer is yes the pass is worth it. Even if you only get a12 hour pass for 18 euro, in 3 rides the pass pays for itself. But going down the Grand Canal is one of the joys of Venice so it might be worth getting a pass for longer than that.
