Please Help! Driving Bellingham, WA to Tsawwassen, BC

First trip to BC and very exciting!!!

I'm flying to Bellingham, WA and will rent a car at the airport.

First 2 nights staying at Victoria and 5nights staying @ downtown Vancouver. Since we will have a rental car I should make a reservation for the ferry.

I'll arrive @ Bellingham last week of August at 12:15pm on tuesday. What time should I make a reservation for a ferry. How long is the driving from Bellingham to Tsawwassen?

the great unknown is the border. I'm not sure I would make a reservation on a weekday. There is a ferry every hr so I would just show up. If it were a friday or saturday different recommendation but when you make a reservation you have to arrive 30 minutes prior or its cancelled. You could also take a psgr ferry from Bellingham to Victoria. Parking will be a lot in Van couver so be prepared.

i agree, i wouldn't bother with a reservation on a tuesday. too many unknowns involved since you're flying in that day and have to cross the border.

Thank you both of you. So I wouldn't make a reservation for a ferry.
