In this video, I take you along as I cross from Vancouver to Vancouver Island aboard the BC Ferry. Coastal Renaissance
Overall Length: 160 metres (525′)

We depart the Tsawwassen ferry terminal headed for Duke Point in Nanaimo. A roughly 2-hour sailing.
I give an overview of the Tsawwassen terminal, some footage on the boat and the views along the way, plus docking at Duke Point Terminal. You’ll see several of the different size ferries in the fleet, and here the horns blow!
It was a foggy start but the skies cleared about halfway along making for a kind of eery then beautifully bright sunny sailing.
Seen the video on Youtube last night, Really brought back memories of when I took a ferry from Seattle (visiting aunt, uncle and cousin when was 14 y.o.) to Victoria and then to Vancouver and back. One of the best trips I ever made except for Central America with the Army. Thanks for the video, Really enjoyed it
