These are good fun and the easy way to get to the island. Also their waterfront tour is inexpensive and give a good view of the False Creek area

Walk on little ferry boats that make getting to granville island a bit of fun. Easy on your feet but a bit pricey for the short hops. Gives a chance to see the city from the water
and thus is good tourist value

Okay, so I took the ferries to Granville twice. I think the pricing is a bit steep for the ride. $7 just seems a bit ridiculous when you could swim the distance, if you wanted. In a town where walking/biking is all the rage, it's too bad they haven't figured out a pedestrian bridge here. The operators are very nice though.

Also a good way to get to Granville Island (if you really must go there, which I don't recommend). Very inexpensive.

We were on bikes coming from the Seawall, and I thought we had to take the ferry to get to Granville Island. So, we paid the $ 10 fare for the two minute ride. What a rip-off! I soon learned that there are two bridges that make the area accessible by foot or bike. Oh well, live and learn, but do be advised that at least if you want to visit Granville Island, you do not need to use the aquabus.
