Victoria’s location at the southern tip of Vancouver Island makes travel from Washington State or from Vancouver, BC a pleasant and easy journey by ferry or by air. The British Columbia Ferry schedules up to 16 crossings daily between Tsawwassen, near Vancouver, and Swartz Bay, just 30 minutes north of Victoria. We recommend that you make a reservation for any ferry travel you need, especially for weekends and over the summer. Check the ferry websites for details.
Many travellers to Vancouver Island use the Coho Ferry from Port Angeles, the Clipper, which is a passenger-only ferry, or the scenic and leisurely Washington State Ferries ship from Anacortes.
If flying is more your style, try Kenmore Air’s harbour to harbour float plane service from Seattle, or connect with Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air to Victoria International Airport. Horizon Air now flies direct, non-stop daily from SanFrancisco to Victoria. Coming from Calgary, Toronto or other Canadian points? Compare fares with Air Canada and West Jet for direct flights into Victoria International Airport.
