The trip through the islands and across the Strait of Georgia took about two hours.
Unlike during the trip from Seattle to Victoria, the weather was clear all the way.
Because she is so susceptible to motion sickness, Evelyn was quite concerned about using watercraft for transportation from Seattle to Victoria and then on to Vancouver. She even used a scopolamine patch on the hovercraft to Victoria. However, that trip proved so smooth, she used no medication at all for motion sickness on the ferry. She enjoyed the trip very much, including standing out on the bow to watch the passing scenery.
I saw many shoals, rocks, and miniature islands marked with beacons and buoys.
Because the tides can create strong currents through the channels, passing boats give wide clearance. This ferry on its way from Vancouver to Victoria sounded its horn well before it came around a bend in the channel.
The ferry terminal is less than 10 miles from the U.S. border.
