Google maps is your friend when it comes to getting around.
You can walk 15 minutes to David Lam Park and take the ferry from there.
Or you can walk 15 minutes to the Aquatic Centre ferry dock and take the ferry to Granville Island.
Buses between your origin and the ferry docks really don't save a lot of time.
Set google maps to transit or walking to see different routes.
If you specifically want The Aquabus to GI, the dock is at the foot of Hornby. The False Creek Ferries use the dock at the Aquatic Center, foot of Thurlow. In the map linked here, follow the respective dotted lines across False Creek to GI. The cost from either of those docks to GI will be for just "one hop."
There is a bus #50 I think that takes you across the bridge and down there. Google Maps says 14mins including the walking portion. Also the bus is cheaper than the boat, but the boat is obviously more fun than the bus.
Google maps isn’t accepting the Hornby St dock as a valid departure. It will reroute you to David Lam or Aquatic Centre stops. The dock seems to be in operation just fine so no idea why this glitch.
In my first post zip tried the Hornby Dock and gmaps totally refused it as access.
The bus in post 3 is another option. You then walk onto the “ island” from the south side.
For the Aquabus dock at the foot of Hornby, you have to enter the exact words that I entered in the map destinations. Not much help to anybody really and it took me some time to find out the exact words to use.
"Aquabus Ferries - Hornby Street Ferry"
The circle with the label in the map I linked is where the ferry dock is. Zooming in is helpful.Edited: 1 year ago
You folks are truly helpful. Thanks.
Bob you probably know this, but since you used the word “transit”, the ferries on False Creek are not part of the transit system. They are private operations.
Oh, I see what you mean trav47 when I complete the map. https://goo.gl/maps/5ua4CwUzYgBCk9va6
That solid blue line from the Aquatic Centre to GI is in fact the False Creek Ferry route.
Well, the Aquabus dock is there at the foot of Hornby and the ferry will take pax over to their GI dock in 5 minutes along the respective dotted line.
You’re only about 5-6 blocks from false creek. Just walk down Granville St. or west a block and down Hornby St. No car required.
