Looks like fun but the worst part about car ferries is you have to hand the keys to some joker that looks like the parking garage attendant on Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Luckily not here. You get in the queue, drive on and when it docks drive off. Taking my Jay Feather x213 to Vancouver Island in August which means I'll be stuck on the bottom deck with all the big rigs. Always looks tight but if a semi can do it then no worries.

The crew guides you on and tucks everyone in tight. What you have to watch is your rear overhang, the entry/exit angles can be steep depending on tide or lake levels. We have done the Vancouver Island Ferries several times with our 213, they usually have more room than the interior lake ferries. Vancouver Island ferry is starting to get pretty pricey, we paid about $260 one way last time. Click image for larger version

Been to Vancouver Island many times but this is the first time towing a big trailer. I just worked out the price on their website and it will be $243 each way. Ugh.

How's the cost on the interior ferries?

They are free . Last time I used the island ferry they brought out their little wheel and measured our unit before they tallied up the fare. Ouch!
