Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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!

I live here in Victoria .... and have only realized how beautiful the City really is ..... being on a Harbour Ferry ( in the Inner Harbour and/or up The Gorge) gives a whole new view and dimension to my City.

If you are a resident of Victoria give this a try AND if you are a Visitor consider doing The Combo Tour - which can be done on different days if desired.

Thank you Skipper

Hop on one of the little put-put tour boats which take you on a guided tour of the Harbor. You can choose between two different tours. Very interesting and lots of fun.

The kids thought this was pretty cool. We were at Fisherman's Wharf and wanted to head back to the inner harbor so we took this instead of walking. It's a fun, quick way to get back to town.

Thank you for your review; we think our little boats are pretty cool too. Hopefully you and your family saw the resident harbour seals at Fisherman's Wharf as well!

We had an enjoyable dinner in downtown and did not want to walk back to our condo, so we thought the Harbour Ferry from the Inner harbour to Fishermans Wharf. Our timing was perfect to catch the ferry and it was a mild,calm evening. The cost was minimal & we were the only two people on the vessel at that time. Highly recommend to all, try at least once!
