I hope you can help me decide the best way to get to the Nanoose Bay area. This summer, we'll be flying into/out of Vancouver for 2 days at beginning and end of a vacation, and in between we'll be spending a week near Nanoose Bay. I need to rent a car for our time on Vancouver Island. I think it might make sense to rent the car in Vancouver, and take the car on the ferry back/forth to/from Nanaimo-Duke Point and Vancouver - even though we'd have to pay for the car also. Do you have any recommendations or ideas to help us plan? Thank you for your input!.
