Navigating The Gulf Islands


We took a quick 24-hour trip to Victoria, British Columbia this week, and on our way back to the States, took a different ferry than the one we usually use.

This ferry, rather than taking us to Port Angeles, Washington, leaves from Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, snakes through the Gulf Islands, and winds up at the Seaspan Tilbury Island terminal in Delta, British Columbia.

We were parked on the front of the ferry, on the deck open to the elements, which allowed us to sit in the cab of the truck, giving us an unobstructed view during the trip. The scenery of British Columbia is always majestic, and on this day, although it was shrouded in mist since it was overcast and a little drizzly, it was still beautiful. We even saw a group of sea lions sprawled on the shore, nestled beneath a small red-and-white-striped lighthouse - we heard their barking as we sailed by. 

This ferry crossing was longer than the other one, but I liked being on the open deck and seeing the scenery. It's definitely something I look forward to doing again.
