If you want to treat yourselves to something spectacular, I’d suggest you consider flying one way. It is incredible to see Vancouver from a Helijet. It sounds fancy but it isn’t that expensive if you book well in advance or book on sale and it saves so much time. You could fly one way and take the ferry the other.
