When? The WA State ferry is not now operating to Victoria.

You probably want to Google BC Ferries and Coho (Blackball) Ferry, two very separate departure terminals.




I assume you have passports.

you may want to read on top right 'trips to Vanc and Victoria. Getting to Victoria with a rental car is a long process. You can take the Victoria Clipper from downtown Seattle as a passenger. Nothing you will want to visit in Victoria requires a rental car. That is the easiest. The best transport is across the border on BC Ferries. You take the Tswassen to Swartz Bay route and in summer the ferries run hourly and take about 90 minutes. Do a little studying but question wether you really need the rental car is your just seeing Victoira?

The Washington State Ferry from Anacortes to Victoria, BC does not start its seasonal service until March 24th and there's one ferry a day then at 8:30 am.

The BC Ferry from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay (just north of Victoria) runs all year and currently has several ferries a day; see bcferries.com/schedules/…tssw-current.php.

The Coho Ferry from Port Angeles is only a morning ferry at this time of year. Starting March 1 there is also an afternoon ferry as well.

As David mentioned above is your interest is just downtown Victoria, using the Clipper would be the easiest from Seattle. Tjhey have packages including hotels: http://www.clippervacations.com/victoria/.
