Ferry Service to Vancouver Island

We are spending time on Vancouver Island after a brief stop in Seattle. We may have a car rented. Should we passenger Ferry to the island and rent a car there or is there an affordable vehicle ferry that operates early October between Seattle or Vancouver to Vancouver Island?

Where are you planning to go on Vancouver Island? If just to Victoria, then you don't really need a car.

Also check with the car rental company about out-of-country travel.

Hi

If you are planning on bring a rental car into Canada, check that the insurance etc. is valid outside the US.

Thank you everyone for your input. We are staying in Nanoose Bay while we are on the island. We are okay to rent there or in Seattle and drive up. I appreciate your comments about checking with the rental companies, I will do that. Any other input you have I would love to hear.

Thanks!
