Great transportation system for us between Vancouver Island and Port Angeles. We have good friends living on the island and formerly, we did also. The trip is about an hour and half and views crossing are beautiful. On board, there is literature to read, puzzles on table which bring others around and fun to visit with for the short ride....

Excellent crew, beautiful views and a scenic passage to Victoria B.C. The best gift store with an excellent book section. Enjoy!

Taking the black Ball Ferry to Victoria from Port Angeles, is a really nice way to get to BC. Once there you can get around Victoria easily by foot or bus. If you do take your car, it is easy to drive on and off the ferry. The staff is very good at getting the vehicles settled.

We found that the Black Ball ferry was a great way to get to Vancouver Island without a lot of hassles. Making reservations online ahead of time saved us the headache of not knowing if there would be enough room to get on the ferry. The ferry is clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. Definitely will take the ferry... More

This was a fun way to get over to Victoria and all that Vancouver Island has to offer. The ship was very clean and comfortable. A variety of facilities were available on board. They even had advertising brochures for various activities at each end of the trip.

The water passage between Vancouver, BC and Port Angeles works efficiently and offers beautiful scenery - such a relaxing ferry ride. Everything you might need is already on-board and very user friendly. Bring your car. Hop aboard and enjoy the sail.

Can not fault the Coho in any way, shape or form! It is spotless, pristine, ageless and timely. Their web site works well. Unfortunate that their terminals in both Port Angeles and Victoria, B.C. are in despite need of attention. Besides all that, you can set your watch by their sailings!

Only problem was getting up all the stairs and back down again as I could not find an elevator. Passengers are not allowed on the car deck while crossing.

This was an excellent ferry ride. We were taking a 43' RV across and they easily accommodated us. The ferry itself is not as nice as a BC ferry but the length of ride and cost was similar to going from Tsawwassan to Victoria. This ferry takes you to right downtown Victoria, which is great if you are walking or... More
