Travel and Transportation

Getting to Victoria

If flying, the simplest is usually a connecting flight to Victoria, often through Vancouver. Several airlines, like Air Canada and WestJet, fly there (generally less than a half an hour!)

 

If you’re interested in a more scenic way in, you can consider the ferry. Ferries will add time to your trip (about 1.5 hours for the ferry itself plus getting to the ferry terminal). The Tsawwassen ferry terminal is 30 km from the Vancouver airport, and likewise the ferry terminal in Victoria (Swartz Bay) is 30 km from the downtown core. http://www.bcferries.com/. Locals say if the weather is nice, the ferry can be a beautiful way to come into the city.

 

The foot passenger ‘Clipper’ ferry from Seattle, WA is quite convenient and goes right to downtown Victoria http://www.clippervacations.com/seattle-victoria-ferry/ but please be advised there is only 1 sailing per day each way. There is also the ‘Coho’ car passenger ferry from Port Angeles, WA to Victoria. https://www.cohoferry.com/.
