to and from the Gulf Islands requires a trip on the BC
Ferries. These ferries run 7 days a week from both Vancouver and
Vancouver Island. The most frequent sailings to the 5 major Gulf
Islands are from Tsawwassen, south of Vancouver,
and from Swartz Bay, near Victoria.
Vehicle reservations for BC Ferries are available or travellers can also
simply walk or ride their bikes on. Ferry sailings are increased
during the summer months and long weekends but vehicle line-ups can be
common during these peak times. While on the ferry be sure to walk
around the outside balcony as the views are nothing short of spectacular
(especially if you are lucky enough to see whales!)
