HELP from those who know Metro options/walking etc.

Want to go from waterfront station (is there a place to buy tickets?) to Yaletown Roadhouse then get to Yaletown ferry to go to Granville Island.

Is this the best option coming to and from the Delta Hotels on Hastings???

We just stayed there. 2 block walk to Waterfront Station. Get a Compass Pass. Very useful. Waterfront station is always busy.

Enjoy

Yaletown Roundhouse to the ferry to Granville Island

You can also take the #50 False Creek South bus in front of Waterfront Station to the Island also.

I love using the little ferry to get to Granville Island! You can get some nice views when you are crossing over as well. Have your camera ready! Cash only though.

20 minute walk, but if you take Canada Line (2 stops) and choose to forego a Compass Card, you can tap a Visa/Mastercard.

No one has mentioned that the two ferry systems that ply False Creek are both private companies so you will need to pay their fares separately from any Compass Card or pass or ticket you have purchased for the transit system.

Aqua Bus, False Creek Ferries. Share some docks, have others on their own, do slightly different routes. Either will get you to Granville Island and do nice tours of False Cteek.

Good point T47.These are private services, but its a really nice ride. Both services are good, so just pick one and go with it. Here's the two sites that show the maps of where the docks are.

Thank you traveller47 and Vancouverite. I mentioned cash only, but should have given more information.

Re: Aquabus. I take it regularly to Granville Island. At that stop (only) there is a credit card machine for arriving and departing passengers' use. On a fine weather day, it's worth purchasing a "day pass" for the Aquabus, and taking the mini cruise around False Creek, exploring at the various stops.

The least costly, least complicated way to get from the hotel to Granville Island will be to take the #50 bus from Waterfront Station right to Granville Island. Tap on with your touchless credit card, or coin fare ($2.95 for adults, $1.90 for seniors/youth with ID; driver will not be fussed if you round up to the next dollar). No change is given on the bus.
