"BC Ferries" Province of British Columbia Transportation Tip by amambaw

  Arrival in Horseshoe Bay
by amambaw

If you want to visit any of the many islands that dot BC's coast, you really only have two options: flying (in a tiny little plane with no ocean view) or taking a ferry! The BC Ferry service is decent, and it will take you not only to Vancouver Island, but to the Gulf Islands and also the Queen Charlottes and BC's North Coast!

The ferries range in size depending on where they service. The largest ferries run between Vancouver and Victoria/Nanaimo, while smaller ferries deliver cars and supplies to the Gulf Islands.

If you plan to visit Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands or the North Coast, check schedules and fares on the BC Ferries website. Some of the routes only run a few times a week, so if you plan to take them, book well in advance to guarentee a spot. This is especially true for North Coast and Queen Charlotte routes.
