SAIL THE SALISH SEA

Travel Direct in Style from Vancouver to Victoria

Seasonal Service: March 15 – October 27


Sail in style on a ferry to Victoria from downtown Vancouver with V2V Vacations. Experience our breathtaking 3.5-hour cruise through the Southern Gulf Islands and Active Pass in the scenic Pacific Northwest. Convenient and efficient, our ferries do not require bus transfers or lengthy cab rides.

With seasonal daily departures between the cities, we provide a uniquely beautiful, comfortable, and convenient journey for travelers seeking a highly personalized and authentic experience.

Our Vancouver to Victoria ferry on the V2V Empress departs directly across from the Vancouver Convention Centre and arrives in the heart of downtown Victoria, just a block away from the Legislative Assembly Building of British Columbia. With convenient ferry schedules from Vancouver to Victoria, you have the ability to explore this lively corner of British Columbia at your leisure.

On our cruises aboard the V2V Empress, you have the option between two luxurious travel classes; Royal Class and Premium Class. Both of these options include ergonomic leather seating, complimentary WiFi, and individual USB and international charging ports at each seat. Additionally, all cruises have access to an outdoor sundeck, authentic British Columbian cuisine, beer, wine, and cider for purchase.

We welcome you aboard the V2V family. Take advantage of direct, passenger-only service between downtown Vancouver and Victoria’s inner harbor. Book with us today!
