    Traveling during peak hours? Get a reservation--you'll be glad you did.

    You can buy your tickets in the self service machines or at the counter. Seats inside, very little space to wait, a coffee shop, vending machines, washrooms, etc. Works pretty much as an airport.

    Foot passengers: unload via deck 2 to get first dibs on the 620 bus to downtown Vancouver!

    Closer to an airport than a dock. Careful in the long term parking. Lots of bikes/peds with mediocre signage

    The sitka cafe is the best place to sit if you're travelling solo! Gentle hum of elderly talking... Hot coffee right here.

    Service here is horrible but they don't care because unless you want to fly to the islands there is no there way to get there. Ticket staff like to chat instead of sell tickets sometimes. Frustrating

    Announcements in the shop area are way to quiet. Need to increase the volume, as tons of people miss the announcements and end up running for the ferry lines when loading has already begun.

    Don't worry about being bored if you get here early... there's a market, lots of food outlets, and free Wi-Fi!
  • British Columbia Visitor Centre @ Peace Arch
    Make sure you make reservations on long weekends and in summer! You can purchase your tickets here at the visitor centre! The ferry terminal is about 35 minutes from the border.

    Come early, otherwise you'll have to wait another 2 hours for the next ferry!

    Enjoy the trip, but if you need to get there quicker try the seaplane.

    If you made a reservation, make sure you show up at least 30 minutes prior to departure, otherwise your reservation will not be honored.

    When they call boarding return to your car DO IT - it is rude to hold up the ferry just so you can visit starbucks!

    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.

    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!

    Reservations are a joke and rip off. We arrived at 4:34 for a 5pm ferry and were denied our reservation. Thanks for nothing

    You can buy a "thru-fare" pass to Salt Spring through Swartz Bay-Fulford if the Southern Gulf sailing is full.
