The Duke Point Tsawwassen ferry connection
The Duke Point Ferry Terminal is 12 km south of downtown Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. It provides a ferry service across the Strait of Georgia to Tsawwassen. The Tsawwassen ferry terminal is about 30 minutes away from the city centre of Vancouver. A big competitor of this route is the route from Departure Bay to the north of Vancouver.
The duration of the ferry ride from Duke Point to Tsawwassen is approximately 2 hours. Once you’re on board, you can enjoy food and drinks but keep in mind that they are pretty pricey, it might even be better to bring your own food along. For this connection, the main takeaway based on my own experiences is to be on time. Don't be late at the terminal if you are traveling in a car.

The park’s trail offers access to unspoiled beaches with breathtaking views of the Nanaimo River estuary, downtown Nanaimo, Protection Island and Gabriola Island. It is a popular spot for observing wildlife; bald eagles, sea-lions, seals and even harbour porpoises can be seen from the park. Jack Point is an incredible location to witness the sunset.
