RE: Bowen Island/Gulf Islands - help please?
Two days ago, on April 1st, BC Ferries raised its fares for all routes. I posted detailed information in a Sunshine Coast post found here. I recommend reading that post before continuing. Here are the new Bowen Island fares and those going back to April 1, 2013. They apply to a standard vehicle carrying two adult passenger.

But, there is something missing. Do you know that nowhere on any route fare schedule page is there any mention of taxes? To determine what taxes will be added to those fares, you need to visit BC Ferries’ “Frequently Asked Questions” section of its website. It just so happens that as for every other “service”, you will pay the 5% GST. So let’s revisit those fares above and tack on the GST.

I have to admit I had no idea that the fares would be this high for Bowen Island since it is appears so close to the Horseshoe Bay terminal.

Information about the Experience Card and the Reservation system is contained in that Sunshine Coast post, too.
