As a resident of Vancouver Island, I am only of those who complain about the cost of travel. But, when sitting next to a visitor, I am reminded of the beauty of the trip. It is the best way to get from the Mainland to Vancouver Island, or any of the Gulf Islands. The scenery is wonderful, and you can sometimes see whales passing by, or eagles flying overhead. Seats are fairly comfortable, food tolerable, on-board shopping is kitchy and touristy.
