I'm from the Island, although I live in the far north now. I'm doing a trip down there myself in a couple of weeks.
Do yourself a big favour, either on the way there, or on the way back; rather than travelling through the Frazer valley out to the coast, take the 'back' road. The Duffy Lake road between Lilooett and Whistler. As a route through the mountains to the coast it cannot be beat, and you avoid all of the lower mainland traffic. Great views, very twisty, little traffic. The two times I've used it there wasn't a spec of sand or gravel on the ashphalt anywhere (probably rain washed) you can charge the corners without worry.
If you take that route, you'll use the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal and a bonus is the Sea to Sky highway, also beautiful.
