If you are going to stay at a rental make sure you take at least 1 or 2 meals along with you - when u get off the ferry @5pm - you may not get to a groc store or restaurant that night. Also expect that groceries are going to be pricey. 2lt jug of milk is $7.00, most things were on average 10-15% higher than in northern bc. Canned soup was 2.89 per can. 10lb bag of potatoes -17.00$.
