We crossed over into British Columbia by ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria using this ferry. It was great! Not a huge ferry, but certainly adequate when we visited. I understand there are long lines in the summer, but we encountered no problems. The ferry offers tickets at discounts to some attractions and we appreciated that opportunity to purchase in advance. Overall, a great way to travel.

Feeling like a mimi-cruise this is perhaps my favourite way off the island. Great selection of Duty Free on return. If conditions are clear then spectacular views of Mt. Baker and whole Strait.

This ferry is a nice way to get to Victoria, BC. Its a beautiful ride and the boat has reduced price tickets for many of the attractions in Victoria. The cafeteria is alos decent.

Great ferry boat ride over. Took first one early and last one back so we had the day in Victoria which was perfect. Went to Butchart Gardens - DON'T MISS IT ! ! Unbelievably beauty!! Skip the carriage rides - not worth it . .

Great way to do a day trip as a walk on passenger, and celebrate a birthday. Staff on the Coho are friendly and helpful, and the ferry has wifi access and comfortable seating. A no stress way to enjoy a day in Victorian or Port Angeles.
