    I presume you are concerned about the expense. The page to look at is bcferries.com/fares/vanisle-... and depending on the height of your vehicle you want to either look at Passenger Vehicle and Trailer or Oversize Passenger Vehicle and Trailer. Either way it is going to cost you a fair amount of money.

    Don't forget you also have to pay for the driver and passenger(s) (price shown does not include them). And gas is now over1.00 a liter (your US gallon is about 3.78 liters) and I'm presuming you're not going to get great gas mileage. Finally - and this may be the deciding factor - May 23rd is Victoria day and a holiday in BC - the ferries will be very busy. Not only will you have to pay a lot but you may be looking at long waits.

    How long are you going to be in Victoria - if it's more than a few days then maybe it would be worth it, otherwise I'd leave it in Vancouver.
