I'm genuinely surprised at how positive the reviews on here are for BC ferries. My guess is that it is mainly tourists who enjoyed the nice scenery the ferry trip offered. As someone who is forced to travel from the lower mainland to Vancouver Island...More

When you have your own car this ferry system is convenient and efficient. The ferry is clean and so much fun traveling through the islands to get from Vancouver to Victoria.

We arrive at Vancouver airport on 4 June, and head to Victoria the very next day for 2 overnights. Can anyone suggest a suitable, clean hotel to stay in on the night of the 4th that would be close to the ferry terminal that we might leave early the next morning? Is there one that might offer shuttle service to the ferry?
