My wife and I are interested in visiting Victoria, including Butchard Gardens, and Friday Harbor using ferries and other public means of transportation. We will be departing from Seattle, and would like to end up in Vancouver probably via Bellingham or Tsawwassen. Travel will be in late July 2011, approximately 4 days, and we will not have a car.
There appear to be numerous ferries between these locations, and I have found reference to busses between Victoria, Butchard Gardens, and Sidney.
Any help on the most efficient route, which ferry between destinations, and whether there are busses or other means of land transportation available.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
