What comes to mind when you think about cruising? Cocktails on the Lido deck, gourmet meals, shipboard entertainment and exotic destinations? Well, reimagine cruising and conjure up the image of a little engine that could chugging through the waters of False Creek. Now add a Canadian flag, a rainbow coloured exterior and voila – Aquabus. These ferries have been plying Vancouver’s waters since 1983, transporting passengers between stops located along the banks of False Creek. I decided it was time to discover my inner mariner and spend a day with Aquabus, a staycation so to speak.
