Erik’s Ferry Ride.

After we left Hope during our British Columbia, Canada 2019 trip, we took a ferry from Tsawwassen, Vancouver to Swartz Bay, Victoria.  The trip takes about one and a half hours, the ferry sails through the Gulf islands and our car goes on the ferry.

There wasn’t a line up at the gate.

The Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal has washrooms, restaurants, shops, free Wi-Fi, etc.

The weather was lovely.

The ferry has a pet station with kennels, but Erik was fine in the truck.
Hubby checked up on him a few times and took him for a walk.
