I have posted in the Vancouver forum, but it was recommended I also post here.
We have planned a trip from Vancouver to Whistler to Victoria to Seattle to Portland to Whidbey Island then back to Vancouver. I have booked all our hotels but am now wondering if we need to pre-book all or some of our ferry crossings. I obviously know the days we need to cross but not the time, and would have to guesstimate crossing times based on driving times suggested by Google Maps.
The ferry crossings we will need are as follows -
Weds 27 Aug - Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo
Fri 29 Aug - Victoria to Port Angeles
Sat 30 Aug - Bainbridge Island to Seattle
Fri 5 Sept - Mukilteo to Clinton
We will need to take our rental car on each crossing.
I'm trying to establish -
If you think we need to pre-book?
How busy the crossings are at this time of year?
How frequent the crossings are?
The best website(s) to use to make bookings?
