You can catch a BC ferry for a trip of less than two hours to Vancouver Island. There are two terminals near Vancouver. One is at Horseshoe Bay and the other is at Tsawwassen. From Horseshoe Bay, the BC ferry will take you to Nanaimo (Departure Bay) on Vancouver Island. From Tsawwassen, the BC ferry will also take you to Nanaimo (Duke Point) as well as Swartz Bay which will put you close to Victoria. Vehicles are allowed on these BC ferries. The cost for a vehicle and driver is $44-$46 depending on the day of the week, and $10.25 per passenger. The ferries run once every hour or two hours depending on the day of the week. Check their web site for detailed schedule and fare information.
