Vancouver to Victoria?

I'm usually a good "trip planner" but I seem to be bogged down on this one. Maybe someone can help - BUDGET is a big issue. Flying in and out of Seattle but want to visit Vancouver and Victoria - in eight days. Any thoughts? Thanks so much!!

Hi LInda ~

All is written in the Top Questions of the Seattle Forum

You can take Amtrak Cascades for 4 hours from Seattle to Vancouver, 2 trains a day.

Next you can take 1) Pacific Coach Lines from downtown Vancouver to downtown Victoria, 4 hours, includes the ferry ride or 2) take public transit to the Tsawwassen ferry terminal (1 hour), walk on the ferry, walk off the ferry in Swartz Bay, take public transit for an hour down to Victoria.

Next you can take the pax only Victoria Clipper catamaran for 3 hours from downtown Victoria to downtown Seattle.




You say 8 days, I think in nights, so maybe 7 nights, maybe 8. I consider that nights anchor you, the days are for visiting or travelling.

2 nights Seattle

2-3 nights Vancouver

2 nights Seattle

1 night Seattle before your flight out.

2-3 nights Vancouver

2 nights Victoria

1 night Seattle.

You can also do this trip in reverse. If you go to Vancouver forum to top questions there's an article about it.
