A global travel publication has named BC Ferries one of the world’s “most scenic” ferry rides.

In a new ranking, Fodor’s Travel said the company’s vessels are “the best, and sometimes only, way to access the many ports of call connecting Vancouver and British Columbia’s west coast.”

In addition to the main connector routes between Vancouver and Vancouver Island, Fodor’s writes, “the company offers… several lengthier trips and vacation tours on specialized boats, which are the best way for visitors to get a feel for this watery wonderland and its many island paradises.”

Other ferry operations on the list include:
