Canadian Ports: Brentwood Bay, BC
Located on the Saanich Peninsula, and only minutes from the BC Ferry Swartz Bay terminal, the Brentwood Bay ferry connects to Mill Bay in the South Central region of Vancouver Island.
It is in Brentwood that the world famous Butchart Gardens are located. Absolutely do not miss visiting "The Gardens" - they are spectacular!
Visitors headed up-Island from the Swartz Bay ferry terminal will find the 25 minute Brentwood - Mill Bay ferry ride a relaxing and time saving short-cut which eliminates about an hr off the up Island drive.
Be sure to arrive early because the ferry only takes about 20-25 cars and the line-up is often quite long.
NOTE: the Mill Bay - Brentwood ferry is a cash only service & does not accept reservations.
