Which Ferry from Victoria to Vancouver?

We will be traveling by car from Victoria to Vancouver, which ferry should we take? Early August travel time. Thank you!

Well... the closest terminal to Victoria is Swartz Bay. It goes to Tsawwassen (just south of Vancouver). It has some scenic areas as it goes through some islands. But, you will be going through some traffic-y areas up into the city.

If you drive up to Nanaimo from Victoria (maybe an hour and a half?), you could take the Departure Bay ferry into Horseshoe Bay (north Vancouver shore). That is pretty much a straight shot across, although same length, but Horseshoe Bay is pretty and an easy drive across to Vancouver.

I'd do Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen. Much more scenic. especially active pass.
