The natural beauty of this 1hr45min crossing winding through multiple islands and sometimes seeing whales is unmistakeable.
However its quite expensive, fares and food. Mostly modern ships with good seating inside and out.
Vancouver island is worth seeing with possibly going from vancouver to Sidney one way then return to vancouver from Nanaimo to horseshoe bay in north vancouver.
Gives you a 2hr drive from Victoria to Nanaimo allowing you to see the beauty of Vancouver island. Stay one night in Victoria spend the next day driving to Nanaimo stopping along the way.
Return to Vancouver on an evening sailing to Horseshoe Bay Vancouver.
