Getting to and from Mayne Island in Vancouver BC

We just returned from a four day weekend on Mayne island. We were lucky enough to get on a BC ferry where ours was the first stop. It's been a long time since I have been on one of the BC ferries and I see now that they have terminals where you can insert your credit card and get your one-way ticket.  They will not actually sell you a return ticket to the Island which I found interesting.

Did you know they can limit the number of walk on passengers that they accept? 

We arrived rather late - it was getting dark - but the best think was the community taxi-shuttle (since there is no taxi service) that you could take. And while we were only a 15 minute walk we had enough booze, clothes and shoes to warrant this ride (which was by donation by the way).  Our driver was lovely and others on the shuttle were able to direct us to our place (which was on loan to us via a friend of a friend).

The only tricky part was keeping our luggage secure as Laura did very well.

Laura is hanging onto our luggage to make sure it didn't become a runaway mess!
There is something so very calming about being on water.
