The Ferry From Vancouver
A great leisurely way to travel is by ferry from Vancouver.
Taking a ferry can be a daytrip in itself because you can stand on the deck of the ship and just enjoy the beautiful natural scenery of Vancouver, BC as you sail the welcoming waters.
It’s a great way to relax and just enjoy the trip upon your own personal “yacht” and enjoy the cruise from Vancouver.
Victoria Ferry from Vancouver
The Victoria ferry is always a nice trip that leaves from the Tsawwassen (pronounced “tah-was-en”) terminal and arrives on Vancouver Island at the Swartz Bay terminal which is just a short drive to Victoria (downtown).
You can also take a bus to Victoria if you want to save money by not having to pay for a car on the ferry and board as a “walk-on” passenger.
The sailing time is usually about 1 hour 40 minutes to travel the 24 nautical miles across from Vancouver.
Ferry from Seattle to Vancouver
There used to be a ferry from Seattle to Vancouver but over time and with the events of September 11 as well as the aging US ferries, this service is no longer offered.
Though you can still take the ferry from several ports in Washington State to Victoria, Vancouver Island.
If you really wanted to, you could sail on the ferry from Washington to Victoria and then catch the ferry from Victoria to Vancouver and then catch the ferry back to Washington again or take an alternative route after you’ve seen all the sights.
These are some of the things to do in Vancouver before you catch a ferry from Vancouver to your next adventure!
