BC Slideshow: Trains, Planes & Ferry Boats

A fun car-free getaway took me by train from Seattle to Vancouver, BC (Amtrak); by float plane from Vancouver to the Sunshine Coast (Tofino Air); by bus and ferry from Vancouver to Victoria on Vancouver Island (Pacific Coach Lines via BC Ferries); by train to Victoria-Courtenay-Victoria (Via Rail Canada); and back to Seattle by float plane (Kenmore Air). Here are links to where I stayed along the way:

How long did it take to get through immigration when you entered Canada? I'm thinking of going to Vancouver via train to get my work permit, didn't know if that would work (wouldn't want the train to leave without me)

Well, it was easy for me, as I had a US passport. So I'm not sure what will happen to you since you want to get your work permit ... I think you should check with the Canadian authorities before going the train route. Either Google it or go to the Canadian Immigration website. Good Luck!

Thanks, I have a US Pasport and have all the paperwork ready. I'll check with the Border Services.
