Your journey to Victoria, British Columbia is just the beginning...
There are several routes and modes of transportation to get to Vancouver Island and Victoria, whether you are coming from coastal BC, Washington State or beyond.
The most popular travel route is aboard the BC
Ferries, which offers spectacular scenery of the magnificent Gulf Islands. Keep your camera out you may even see a whale. This 1 ½ hour ferry ride connects the British Columbia Mainland to Victoria and the rest of Vancouver Island.
Other ferry options to consider are: Washington
State ferries, from Anacortes and the CoHo
from Port Angeles. Traveling on foot. Take the Victoria
Clipper from Seattle, the Victoria
Express Cruise Ship from Port Angeles and Friday Harbour or the Victoria/San Juan Cruise Ship from the San Juan Islands.
Want something a little faster. Why not fly harbour to harbour on a seaplane
Air. You won't believe the view from up there. Coming from Seattle. Travel in style with
Helijet. For over 18 years their fleet of Helicopters and turbo aircrafts have been flying over the natural beauty of the coasts of South Western BC's and the Pacific Northwest. Air travelers can also fly into
International Airport, a half hour drive north of the "Garden City". The Airporter Shuttle, services all hotels and car rentals services. As well,
taxi's are available at the Airport.
On a budget. We recommend you consider Pacific
Coach Lines for getting from Vancouver or from Northern points of Vancouver Island to Victoria. They offer reasonable rates and frequent service to Victoria with several pick-up locations. The coaches from Vancouver travel abroad on the BC ferries giving you the added pleasure of the "cruise" experience.
