drive over to American customs office on Wellesly Island here take the left just before you head down to the booths. Go around back of the building and park, go in and take a number. I/we (depending on if I have a chick for the summer yet or not ) usually spend about an hour. Some of the stuff you see in there is priceless, cause when people don't get past the officer at the booth, that's where they take them to sort it out...Originally Posted by cuposterchild
no equivelent in Ca. As a boater you can call the CAN PASS number from your cell, from the dock. Just stay on the dock next to the boat or better yet in your boat. If you by lottery get chosen to be "seen" and your wandering around the docks when they arrive...you're off to a bad start!
Once your in the system, they know you. Alot of time I'll call and I just give 'em my name and location and they'll say "you're aboard Imager today Randy?...is (plug in girls name here) with you today? Then ask the 3 questions (which is of course when you tell them about the .45, the case of JD, and the big bag of weed you have aboard ) give me a number and wish me a nice day.
Hint: have your cell carrier enable "international call allow" save you big money using your cell over there! I have it on and using my phone over there is just like using my phone locally. Our carriers have agreements with thier towers to service us, but the feature has to be on your number to not pay roaming, intnl. call prices ect.ect. It costs me NOTHING with Cingular.
Don't forget NO OPEN ALCHOHOL IN YOUR BOAT WHILE UNDERWAY IN CANADIAN WATERS. Is the law. They may be somewhat lenient on Americans but don't risk it. They hit there own HARD for this, I know it for fact. Not only dump your beers but fine like $250 PER PERSON.
