The boat ride was absolutely stunning because you get to see Victoria from the shoreline, many of the Gulf Islands, through English Bay, under the Lion’s Gate Bridge and into Coal Harbour where you see Vancouver’s skyline.
Good quality food and service. All the staff we encountered were happy, friendly and attentive.
We splurged on Royal class both ways although next time I would probably do it just one way as it’s pricey.
If you don’t need a car it’s a luxurious and beautiful cruise and it set the tone for a fabulous weekend in Vancouver.

The trip by V to V from Vancouver to Victoria was seamless. The trip began and ended on schedule. V to V is a far superior choice compared to the alternatives for those who don't need to go by automobile. It's much more relaxing than the hopping from bus to ferry and back to bus again when taking the BC ferry/bus Connector. The extra money is worth it.
The one option quicker than V to V, making the trip by seaplane via Harbour Air is much, much quicker but is far more costly both in terms of dollars and the environmental toll on Victoria Harbour from the air and noise pollution that the seaplanes generate.

This was one of the coolest ways to get to Victoria from Vancouver. This was such a beautiful way to travel and we got to see Orca whales. We were steps from our hotel in DT Victoria when we arrived. We didn't have to drive or take the bus for an hour each way from the Ferry was a bonus. The experience was well worth it and the staff was amazing.

We were walking in downtown Victoria, wondering how to to get to Vancouver 2 days later. Then we walked pass the V2V Empress, which was having an open house in 2 minutes. We went onboard and were instantly captivated by her luxurious setting and the friendly atmosphere. Before we know it we brought 7 tickets...

And we were not disappointed. The crew were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. The view was great. And unlike an airplane the Empress was so spacious that an A380 is prison by comparison.

And before we know it, the Lion Gate Bridge appeared outside the windows...

Couldn't be better. Great ferry. Comfortable. Good food! Breakfast croissant with fresh fruit salad and good coffee. I couldn't believe that there were fresh flowers on the tables. The staff is informed and friendly. I think it's the best way to get back and forth between the two cities. Highly recommend.
