BC has a ferry called the "Tofu"?

...of course, we have only made the crossing one time, and I hope the locals get a break, but that ferry crossing from Coupville to Port Townsend was one one of the highlights of our return trip from Chilliwack. I highly recommend it and call it a bargain for the value of the adventure!

So...$450.00 round trip?. Your math may be wrong gbaglo.

We like taking that ferry over to visit Olympic National Park!

One of the costs for getting to live on the Island!

We have started taking the trailer to Vancouver when we visit my Mom, in a senior's residence there, and stealth camping adjacent to the community park beside her residence. $102 extra each way for the trailer ($192 total). Way cheaper - and more convenient for us - than hotel.

We're traveling to US soon, and I compared three ways of getting off the Island -- BC Ferries $192Cdn, MV Coho Victoria to Port Angeles $177US/~$238Cdn, WashDot Sidney to Anacortes $179US/~$241Cdn (all three are comparable-length trips, although the Coho is very spartan compared to BC Ferries. On that basis, BC Ferries is a bargain.
