The Tsawwassen ferry terminal, just south of Vancouver, is most convenient if you’re coming from Vancouver International Airport. That ferry takes just over 2 hours and arrives at Duke Point, a few minutes south of Nanaimo. The Horseshoe Bay terminal in West Vancouver, is closer to downtown Vancouver. That ferry takes just under 2 hours and arrives at Departure Bay in Nanaimo.
