Transportation options for Vancouver to Victoria to Seattle

Jump to last reply

We will arrive in Vancouver mid June from an Alaska cruise but want to spend several days in Victoria and Vancouver. Our flight home is out of Seattle. I have reserved a rental car in Victoria for the 3 days on the island with plans to return it there and then take a ferry to Seattle.
My question concerns the desirability of renting the car in Vancouver and returning it to
Vancouver. I don't like to back track and that is what we would be doing from Victoria to get to Vancouver to secure ground transportation to Seattle. Also, the cost of putting the rental car on the ferry to and from Victoria seems unnecessary. The downside to all this is the schlepping bags from the ship to the Vancouver hotel to the bus to the ferry to the Victoria hotel etc.
It seems like the bus/ferry from Vancouver to Victoria where we can rent the car makes the most financial sense. Then taking the ferry from Victoria to Seattle. Am I missing something?
Is there a better way to make that trip?
