Victoria Harbour Ferry's boats provide the best view of Victoria...From the ocean! Take a Harbour Tour, historic Gorge Waterway Cruise, or hop on an H2O Water Taxi as you explore inner harbour destinations. Visit us on the dock in front of the Empress Hotel. From there, a VHF Captain can take you to Victoria's best-kept secret: Fisherman's Wharf! Feed the seals, grab some lunch from Barb's Fish and Chips, check out the funky float homes, go for a whale-watching or kayak adventure with Eagle Wing or Kelp Reef, and pick up an ice cream cone from Jackson's on the way back into town! We have something for everyone...Including the Pickle Pub Crawl! Come down anytime to pick up a wristband, which you can use for four harbour ferry rides to "hop" from one harbour brewpub to another. Plus, groups of four or more get free appetizers at each location! So much to do, and so much to see...Victoria Harbour Ferry!

After walking around all day, we decided to take a harbour ferry from the wharf into town. It was easy, cheap, and a great way to see the harbour!

A nice, if not a bit expensive, way to get around Victoria. Should do at least once during your stay in Victoria.

We took the harbor ferry on our last night. I wish we had been doing it the whole time! This is a great transportation option and it is less expensive then a traditional cab and MUCH MORE beautiful.

Excellent for a tour or for transport to various points in the harbor. Took a one-way ride to the West Bay Marina and walked the marine path back to town.

Such a fun way to be able to check out Victoria and get around with out having to deal with the traffic. With so many stops throughout the city you are able to check out a lot of different areas.

An absolutely lovely way to spend ~1.5 hours. The small, open air ferry takes you on one of two routes (45 minute inner harbour tour or 75 minute Gorge tour) with the pilot pointing out interesting sights and history of the area. Fantastic way to...More

The water taxis were $6 per person for a one way trip, $11 for a round trip. There are more expensive rides if you want a longer tour of the harbor.

The closest ferry stop from Ogden Point (cruise ship terminal) is Fisherman's Wharf. It's about a 15 minute walk. Check out our website to take a look at a map of all of our ferry stops. Have a great trip to Victoria.
