Hello Vancity Girlfriends,
During the winter, it's promotion time at BC Ferries! From November 16th - December 19th you can get 50% off standard vehicles for sailings from Monday-Thursday and Saturday which makes it $27.70 per vehicle per sailing instead of $55. I know it's atrocious to think that inflation has brought travelling to the Vancouver Island to be such a luxery. Or more likely it's bad budgeting of BC Ferries which may be increasing the fares. I still remember the good old days when I first moved to Vancouver 15 years ago when I would travel back and forth at least once a month.
Even though it's cold, rainy, and windy, BC Ferries are strong and can sail through the stormy seas and at half the cost, it's worth it to travel especially if you have family or work on the island. If you travel on the first sailing, you can watch the blue horizons as the sun rises. Sailing the seas on BC Ferries is quite scenic no matter what the weather is.
