BC Ferries has multiple sailings per day from the mainland (in and around Vancouver, BC from different locations) and persons travelling either by foot or with their vehicles from the US state of Washington also have multiple choices. During the summer, reservations are recommended as travellers flock to the island to take in world-renown natural beauty. Schedules and appropriate fares/costs are accessed via there individual websites below.
