What I am wondering, since I have a brother that lives in the city of Vancouver, is there another ferry I can catch further up north so I would not have to go back to Washington to get to the city of Vancouver? I know I could probably look this up but thought you might be able to provide a quick answer for me.
You'll be taking the Coho, or the Clipper? Either way, you'll be coming in to the Inner Harbor, which is about six blocks from where I live.
To get to Vancouver, you want to go to the BC Ferries in Sydney (a small town just north of Victoria). Those will take you to Vancouver. The ferry ride is about 1.5 hours, but there's usually a 1-2 hour wait to get on the ferry if you are driving. Walk-ons are easier, and there are buses from Victoria that go directly to the ferries. It's a beautiful trip, and you'll go by lots of little islands. Tip: the higher up you go on the ferry levels, the better the food.http://www.bcferries.com/
Maybe we could meet up? PM me if you want. Either way, have a great trip. And bring a warm jacket for the evenings!
