The wifi is free, but it blocks you from YouTube or any site that streams data.
Free wifi in the terminal and big boats
The Salad Loop is a tasty buffet where you can stock up on all kinds of yummy salads and fixings! More nutritious than other ferry food.
try out the Coastal Celebration Ferry. it sure is pretty.
People complaining about the ferries are babies. Yes it's expensive but its your choice to commute or live on the island. It's over all a pretty reliable means of transportation off or on to the rock.
I'm on a boat!
The lounge has bottomless drinks and snacks + it's quiet. Well worth the $10!
I have been riding the BC Ferries since 1971. lost track of how many trips. the trip may be the same scenery, but I still find a quiet Zen peacefulness in the ride.
Avoid this time-vampire at all costs... unless you're a tourist. I have rode the ferry over 200 times. That's 300+ hours (more than 12 days) of my life. This privilege has cost me more than $10,000.
Protip: Don't forget you boarding pass.
You can catch a ferry here.Ask one of the attendants for more info and have fun!
Check in at Salt Speing Coffee and get a free drink. Nice one...
Be sure to check out the Gift Shop onboard - GREAT books with local flavour, selection of Canadian authors. Nice clothing and gift items too, but bit pricey.
Vending machines are ridiculously overpriced! Wait and get a drink a the cafeteria on the boat for a fraction the cost!
Bring food with you, save some skrilla and make a sandwich
Avoid the ferries at all costs.
When they call boarding return to your car DO IT - it is rude to hold up the ferry just so you can visit starbucks!
Love Saltspring Coffee as a new addition. Their healthy fiber muffin is delish.
Expect the ferry to be late every single time...
Waiting for the ferry is a great time to clean up the car and glove box :)
Check out the vending. Great products and well placed machines all over the terminal.
Remember to pay for parking. If you forget to pay then you can phone the terminal attendent and they will place an IOU envelope on your dash and you pay when you go back to your car.
Don't be late!!!!
If you're late, just drive up the ramp to the ferry without being directed to. It's really funny and everyone will see the humour. The ferry workers will give you high-fives as you pass them!
Bring your wallet and prepare to spend. $35 for two walk-ons to Saltspring
Berth 4 for walk on's does not have any seating.
Walk over to the Quay and get a delicious cup of Salt Spring Coffee!
Since you are waiting in the line up head over to freefromtheratrace.ca an explore your options!
Ice cream shop inside the market area has amazing flavours of Gelato!
Salt Spring Coffee mocha can't be beat
Unlike Washington State Ferries BC Ferries doesn't sell beer or wine on board!
Avoid the hard sell douche at the cel phone place. Guy's a barracuda.
I like to hang out in the seawest lounge when the ferry is busy. It's quiet, no crowd, and all the coffee, tea and snacks you want. It's $10 but worth it.
Arrive early make a reservation it's worth it in the long run @bcferries
Beautiful passage through Georgia Strait to Sydney, BC.
If you made a reservation, make sure you show up at least 30 minutes prior to departure, otherwise your reservation will not be honored.
Play some video games on the ferry
There is wifi on most ferries and power plug in the back of the ship up on the walls! ;) get your geek gear on!
Reservations are a joke and rip off. We arrived at 4:34 for a 5pm ferry and were denied our reservation. Thanks for nothing
There's bathrooms down the stairs near berth 3.
If you can curb your hunger for an hour or so, you won't have to stand in line for 20 at the cafe…
62 bucks if ur going in a car!! So expensive!
Total rip off. 50 for the car plus the per person cost. Sure wish I had other options.
Considering the wages paid and that most of the workers could be replaced with well trained monkeys (which would be cool)they are on par with Somali pirates.
It's great to have a buffet on the ferry to Victoria!! Breakfast!! Pretty good quality and yummo!!
