Re: Wanted - boat delivery (Seattle to Vancouver, BC)

Hi Brian.

I did that trip a few years ago.

Is the Canadian duty / GST / PST paid? You will have to arrange that.

We cleared customs/immigration at Steveston and did the paper work at the Vancouver Airport.

You might be able to clear at Sidney and do the paper work at Victoria Airport.

Our route

Saratoga Passage
Swinomish Channel
Rosario Strait
Georgia Strait
South Arm of the Fraser.

If going to Sidney/Victoria, I would go through the San Juan Islands via Thatcher Pass.
