Great simple service to get you across the water to Canada. We booked in advance but on the day we arrived there were plenty of people paying there and then. Duty free opens halfway across. Spotted a couple of whales too!

No fuss no muss travel. Expensive! If traveling in summer, you must reserve in advance to assure a place IF traveling with a car.

We walked on the MV Coho with a family of 5 adults, it wasn't cheap, but a pleasant ride. Better to have a light jacket even in August. We were able to purchase tickets for Buchart Gardens on the boat with the shuttle to and...More
