About Victoria Harbour Ferry
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!

Tired from our long walk downtown we decided to take this ferry for the last haul from Songees Landing to West Bay Marina. Made a quick call ahead and the ferry was there in no time. Friendly captain and a nice fun ride.

A great way to see the harbor scenery from the water. The Captains are always ready with trivia about the Victoria Inner, Middle and Outer Harbors. They also go out of their way to help seniors embark and disembark safely. Have used the harbor to...More

These little ferries cross the harbour all day with lots of different stops along the way. We crossed from Fishermans wharf to the Empress. The driver gives a running commentary of each stop

Took the trip to the upper harbour and gorge area. Very informative narrative and pleasant and relaxing trip. Offer a discount if you do both the inner and upper harbour. On a Sunday during the main tourist season, the harbour taxis perform a ballet in...More

One of the best ways to see Victoria gives you a much better overview than walking in town, well informed operators and not expensive.
