    Vancouverbound and J de Fuca ferry options

    Canada beckons once snow cleared June?

    I know Montreal well and find my way around GTA
    Hamilton ok

    First visit to
    Vancouver for a few days stop over before ferry Victoria to Port Angles and Sequim, Mt St helens permitting

    Is it necessary to rent a car to get around like LA? No objection to take local metro/bus or cab but in some places like Bangkok Dubai the cab is a no brainer.
    I avoid nightime public tramsport in US as its an asylum but Canada feels safer I guess they export the deranged here or south of the 49
    Can I take a Canadian rental on the cross straits ferries or simpler rent each end?

    Will try avoid WISDOT in summer recess

    Anyone used Sidney to Friday Harbour service?

    Thank you in advance
    I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn’t find any.

    Yes book now as far ahead as possible and use the same agents as airlines. I have found priceline to be good. You should be able to get a nice car like a Toyota Altis for less than 25 dollars a day. But arrange your own Damage collision as you wont be covered. I am not and use a company out of the UK. You absolutely have to have a car in LA. Make sure you have google maps or a GPS as well... Enjoy.

    Wow, you are so lucky going to Vancouver! I've been wanting to go to BC and AB, but haven't made it yet.
    The only advice I can give you from many friends that have lived there is that it is expensive!
    It is by far the most expensive place to live in Canada. You can take a taxi around the city. Check here for the fares. https://www.numbeo.com/taxi-fare/in/Vancouver

    I don't know much about the ferry, but this may help you.
    BC Ferries Schedules: Vancouver - Victoria<br />(Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay)

    Take pics and I hope you enjoy it! Vancouver is a very beautiful city, and you'll see lots of Asians. It is also referred to as Hongouver or Little Asia.
