There aren't many options crossing between the Olympic Peninsula and Victoria, but fortunately Black Ball has good connections.

Took the ferry to Victoria, BC. It was a very smooth sail, really enjoyed the scenery and the pricing one way was fair. The latte machine was broken, otherwise I would have given this Ferry 5 stars instead of 4.

Wow, never used a ferry before but the process was super easy and fast. Easy on, easy off, reasonably priced.

There are numerous tour buses leaving from several locations close to where you depart from the ferry but whether or not they allow dogs I do not know. I suggest that you contact Victoria tourism to get a better answer.
