Ferry entering Snug Cove (Picture BC photo)
Water-based transportation has many fringe benefits: you get an unlimited supply of fresh air, a deck-side view of breathtaking scenery not accessible by land and a high probability of spotting marine wildlife.
BC Ferries is the primary provider of ferry service in the province. They offer scheduled passenger and vehicle service to almost 50 ports of call along BC's coastline. Smaller regional ferry operators service remote local and lakeside communities and are quick and economical.
Popular marine crossings occur between the mainland and Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, as well as the Sunshine Coast, an inlet-studded stretch of coastal mainland not accesible by road. In Northern BC, ferry service includes the Inside Passage, which links Vancouver Island and the region, and to Haida Gwaii, an isolated archipelago of islands.
The Discovery Coast Connector links small communities on BC's mid-coast, in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region. Connecting service to other regions via the Inside Passage ferry, is available.
