Lots of vehicles! the views were beautiful, we came across as the sun was setting. organized boarding of cars and other large vehicles. Lots of seating.
I think this is the only ferry company that will take you from Victoria to mainland Vancouver. It is a much bigger ferry than Black Ball going to Victoria from Port Angeles. I suffer from motion sickness and do not usually get much effected on this ferry route. People will tell you to go through the big buffet or get... More
Dear Valued Customer, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our services. You are right, BC Ferries is currently the only ferry company which travels between Victoria and Vancouver. I am glad to hear that you had a pleasant experience while sailing with us. Reservations are definitely a great way to avoid sailing waits, especially during weekends... More
over priced monopoly ,it is not an attraction more of a toll highway extension that is the only link for islanders to the mainland
A wonderful trip between Tswassen an Swartz Bay (just north of Vicoria). The food is not bad, but the scenery is fantastic. There are games for the kids, A great buffet awaits if you are really hungry. The seats are comfortable and the gift shop is surprisingly good. All in all it is a very pleasant way to spend the...

The BC Ferry route between Tswassen and Victoria is a gem. Passing through the southern Gulf Islands there is beauty all around. From eagles in the trees to occasional orcas outside Active Pass the route is one of the most scenic ways of getting to Vancouver Island.
Dear Valued Customer, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our services. We are definitely very fortunate to operate in such beautiful waters as the ones in British Columbia. We always try to announce overhead when orcas are near by so that everyone has the opportunity to see them! We look forward to welcoming you aboard again... More
BC ferries has a modern, clean fleet of ships with several amenities on board. We travelled from Vancouver via the Tswassen terminal to Schwartz Bay near Victoria. The trip from the mainland to Vancouver Island takes about an hour and a half, but you need to get to the ferry landing well in advance to ensure that you can get... More

BC Ferries are not your traditional idea of a ferry. They are spotlessly clean, comfortable, accessible to people with handicaps. The crew are pleasant and helpful. There are usually several dining options, desks for those using laptops or tablets, and play areas for children. Don't miss the gift shops, they have a wonderful inventory of attractive, good quality merchandise at... More

Looking at it from a first time traveller it is a good experience. The views are awesome. The food not so much. If you must eat on the ferry I would say go for the buffet it's a little expensive especially if you are not a big eater but the food is better. I would also say you should get... More
Dear Valued Customer, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our services. You are definitely right; checking our Current Conditions online is a great way to see how traffic is looking at the terminal. Reservations are also a good way to avoid sailing waits. We look forward to welcoming you aboard again soon! Kind regards, Amy –... More
I travel BC Ferries a lot from Victoria to Vancouver. Always a beautiful trip but recently we were treated to seeing a couple of pods of Killer Whales breeching beside the ship. What an amazing sight! Have done this trip for years but only had this opportunity on 3 occasions and usually only one pod. The gift shop on the... More

At least once you should take the trip between Vancouver and Victoria .... its a beautiful 1 1/2 our ride on some of the largest ferries in the world. Travelling thru the Gulf islands is spectacular scenery .Done it many times and have even seen whales on occasion!
