Transportation from Vancouver to Seattle Airport
 
We are trying to find a way to get from the ship in Vancouver to the Seattle Airport in a resonable amt of time. There are 4 of us. Carnival offers a bus but I was looking for other options. All advice would be appreciated.

Check out quickcoach.com. It's a coach shuttle service that specializes in just that. However, the schedule for next summer isn't available yet, but you can get the idea.

I most always drive, but did take Quick Shuttle once, no complaints. One way rentals are available, National, Avis, Hertz, Budget, Alamo. I have rented from them all except Hertz- going with the cheapest at the time.

You want DOWNTOWN Vancouver and not the airport. Easy to walk and sometimes is much faster than waiting for shuttles. There are some offices at Canada Place as well.

But allow 4 hours for the drive and if you are flying out of Seattle that day, don't plan a flight before 3pm if you haven't been there before. It is slow stop and go city driving out of Vancouver- have a good map and Seatac is 12 miles south of Seattle, can be VERY congested traffic. Gas is right outside the airport.

There is also Amtrak once per day leaving Vancouver around 6pm. Rest of schedule is bus. Add $25+++ for a cab from downtown Seattle to Seatac.
