Queen of Cowichan - Ferry To The Mainland

The day came to leave Vancouver Island and this time we would not give in to the temptation to save a few dollars.  Car and coach combined, we measure a whopping 64 feet in length ringing up a $340 ferry expense trip from Nanaimo to Vancouver. It saved the cost of divorce however.

We arrived at Departure Bay about an hour before sailing time and enjoyed a nice lunch in the coach while we waited in line.

Once we loaded the ferry with Lexie and Ozzie safely secured in their window seats on board the coach, we went topside to enjoy the sunshine, cool air and scenery. I returned to the coach to check on them twice and they seemed comfortable and unafraid.  That was good as I feared the worst.

Since we took quite a few photos during the 90 minute crossing to Horseshoe Bay, I've added them as a slideshow in case you don't want to scroll through a bunch of water pictures.

Our plan today upon disembarking the ferry is to travel the "Sea To Sky" highway north to Squamish, British Columbia from where we'll take a day trip into Whistler, British Columbia.  We arrived right on time and departed the Queen of Cowichan without incident.

Glad you joined us for the ferry crossing.  Hope you enjoyed it.
