I believe that a vesicle is just a cavity, whereas organelles carry out functions. For example, a vesicle is just a holder for stuff, but there are many organelles (like a mitochondrion, or a ribosome).

Kiekyon, are you looking for differences like under a microscope?

Hi,

Vesicles and Organelles are structures found inside an cell. Vesicle store, transport, or digest cellular products and wastes. Organelle is one of several structures with specialized functions, suspended in the cytoplasm.

Thanks!
