stop over in maritimes

by Muffyrabbit

Can anyone advise me on the cheapest way to stop over and visit the maritimes for a week or two on the way back from visiting relatives in Vancouver late August September? Looking at multitrips with Air Canada is coming out at £1656.00!!!!!!
If I fly London to Vancouver and break the return journey in Toronto it is only £665.00! Can you help with the best internal flights or other travel that will be cheaper and also would it be best to get to Halifax or St John's or any where else? Any travel advice much appreciated. We love to visit Canada and have been to BC several times but have never ventured into Eastern Canada

Don't forget the distance you are flying - you are going back and forth across the entire country. You are also travelling at high season. That being said, the Air Canada price looks way too high, but it won't be cheap. There are no direct flights - you are looking at flying from Vancouver to Toronto (5-1/2 hours) and then off to say Halifax (1-1/2 hours) and if you want to get to St John Nfld, another 1-1/2 hours past Halifax.

Try some of the discounters (Expedia.com and that ilk) for prices and check out WestJet. Air Canada and WestJet are really your only options.

Perhaps one other thing to consider is getting an "open jaws" ticket - where you fly into one city and out of the other and redo your schedule to be UK - Vancouver - Halifax - UK. There are direct flights from Halifax to the UK.

You already have good advice up there. People seem to forget that travelling across Canada is as long as travelling overseas from the Northeast.

The openjaw ticket is a good solution and you may also want to look into Porter airlines which cover the Northeast (www.flyporter.com).

The Maritimes will be beautiful at that time of the year and make sure you stop by Quebec City along the way if you have the time.

Re: stop over in maritimes

by GrumpyDiver

I agree Porter could be an option out of Toronto, but it is not all that attractive. Air Canada and WestJet fly out of Pearson Airport, while Porter flys out of the Toronto Island Airport. It can be done, but you have the issue of having to get between the two airports. The Island Airport is more sensitive to weather delays than Pearson and I have experienced a much higher percentage of delays and cancellations out of that airport than Pearson.

Porter flights are all on Dash 8's as well, so a much smaller, turboprop plane versus the larger aircraft flown by WestJet and Air Canada.

Another alternative would be to look at doing connections out of Ottawa or Montreal. Both WestJet and Air Canada have Vancouver and Halifax connections out of both cities.

As for stop overs - Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal are all great places to visit. Quebec City is nice too, but a bit of a sidetrip. Out of Toronto, Niagara Falls is only 90 km away.

Many thanks for wise advice guys, I think I will have a look at the open jaw option. Had expected to find Air Canada flights expensive - friends seem to fly to Australia and New Zealand for less than we can get flights to Canada - but I know where I would rather go!!!! I am just at the first stages of planning this holiday so when I have got past this hurdle of convenient flights at a reasonable price I will be looking for more local advice on good itineries in the Maritimes.

Travel Tips for Vancouver

Elvis has left the building!

by nigelw6443

You will find dotted around the city a number of Orcas or Killer Whales. They are painted with some wonderful designs. This one in particular caught my attention outside the Virgin Mega store on Robson.

If you sail, the Gulf Islands...

by jetsam

If you sail, the Gulf Islands to the west (just off Vancouver Island) are stunning. Though conditions are shifty, and you may log some engine time out there. There are good marinas throughout the islands, and a great pub and restaurant in Ganges on Saltspring Island. Whistler is Whistler and we all know about that, but in the summer Whistler is busy with all sorts of activities from golf to paragliding and hikes for all. Between Whistler and Vancouver is Squamish, which is calling itself the Outdoor Adventure Capital of the World, with legitimate claim. Rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, windsurfing and dozens of other sports to do, I think they're even making up new ones there. The area also has some great scuba diving, if you can stand the water and the 8mm wet suit. Mr Coustou himself ranked it number two in the world for sea life.

Lord Stanley's Park is...

by Higgie

Lord Stanley's Park is wonderful. The city itself is a great walking town. Gastown area is worth a visit.
The Mile Stone was a nice Bar and resturant I enjoyed. Granville Island is great So many restaurants great Salmon
everywhere. I went to Grouse mountain in the evening just in time to see the local participate in a event called the grind the raced
straight up the mountain I belive it is a 1000 meters up. It was a party on top of the mountain.

Addresses in Vancouver

by rmdw

Many visitors to the City of Vancouver get very confused about finding an address. Here's a quick guide:

- Avenues run East-West, with each new block representing 100 more in the address
- The divide between East and West occurs at Ontario Street; 1 blk west would be the West 100 block and 1 blk east would be the East 100 block
- Streets run North-South
- For some historical reason, the cross avenue does not match the numbering scheme of the street. For example, if you have to go to 4500 Granville, you wouldn't go to 45th Avenue. Instead, you divide the address by 100 and then subtract 15 to figure out what Avenue to look for. Thus, 4500 Granville would be at 30th Avenue (ie. 45 - 15 = 30). Another key thing to remember is that to find North just look to the mountains!

The Vancouver Aquarium Marine...

by lucyguajardo

The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre is great, and is in the Stanley Park.
You can observe Bjossa and Whitewings swim against a backdrop of natural rocks from Mayne Island. For those with an interest in fish, The Aquarium has a number of tanks displaying sea life found in the Tropics and along The West Coast. I really love the Sea Otters and the most strange was some blue frogs..check it!!!!
