Take a Sunset Ride on the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay Ferry

Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal

The ferry from the mainland to Vancouver Island is always spectacular. But when you time it right so that you are sailing at sunset, it becomes exponentially more beautiful!  

You can walk on or take your car on the ferry. Either way gets you to the same views. Make sure you sit on the right side of the boat (and it sometimes turns around once leaving the dock). Set up on the upper deck, and prepare yourself for an unbelievable show. 

Make sure you check out the onboard Tripple O's Restaurant for some tasty burgers and fries!

Sunsets can are awesome on the ferry

Sunsets can be pretty great on the ferry, the only not so great part is having to pay for the ferry! haha
