The ferry is not only a beautiful way to see the coast between Vancouver and Victoria but the staff are super and crew friendly. The scenery is wonderful and the trip is far more comfortable compared to the alternative ferry options. Would recommend to anyone!

This is a great way to see the waterways between Vancouver and Victoria. It's a calm, comfortable experience that offers a different perspective from the sea planes and ferries. Good food and great staff. Gregory was terrific.
