I feel badly as you helpful people are probably answering the same question over and over - so I apologize for this question.
I was in Victoria years ago - we stayed near the Empress Hotel - is this downtown area? I want to go from Vancouver to that area and enjoy a day in that adorable area. The time we were there, there were colorful bears all around - cute little shops and restaurants. We watched fireworks from the shore. I read on one of the many responses here on the forum that many people don't realize how big Victoria is - and I want to be sure the ferry from Vancouver drops us at this port. Last time I visited, we came from Seattle so I'm not sure. I don't want to take another bus from where the ferry lets out.
So I'm respectfully asking for a clear idea of which ferry goes from downtown Vancouver directly to the part of Victoria I want to visit - or if this isn't possible.
Thank you so much for your time.
