Very cool travelling on the ferry that has been operating since 1959 (I believe) and never missed a scheduled run! Wasn't overly impressed with the wait through customs but it's to be expected.

Having never road a ferry of this size it was an interesting experience. The crew was nice and got us on and off efficiently.

Efficient service between Victoria and Port Angeles. Smooth ride. If you don't have a reservation try to get early. The boarding was fast. It looks like the guys there know their job.

A great and direct way to get into Victoria, BC. The process was easy and we boarded smoothly with friendly staff assisting all passengers in vehicles and on foot. The facilities on board the ferry were good, all clean and had comfortable chairs. Only issue was the wifi as it was not a strong connection and really didn't work. Would highly recommend this service :)

Everyone should take a ferry once in a lifetime , however once is enough ! Like I said in the title , people with barking dogs , people with luggage , sleeping stretched out across a entire bench seat built for 4 people , dirty restroom's , employees who would rather be anyplace else than where they were , that being said , it was the quickest way to get from Port Angeles to Victoria BC , I'm glad we went , We did have a great time in Victoria once we were there , I had to laugh, , , , they are STILL using an OLD Bing Crosby singing commercial from the 1940's to promote the Ferry Line , I guess they just about got their money's worth out of that piece of history.
