Vancouver Transfer: Vancouver Cruise Port to Victoria

Ferry Between Victoria and Vancouver

Getting from the Port of Vancouver cruise terminal to Victoria can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. This convenient port-to-city transfer option takes all the hassle out of renting a car or paying for a taxi after a flight.

Just enter your details when you book, and your shared transfer is confirmed instantly. When you land, show your voucher to the driver and hop inside the coach. Relax on the transfer to Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, and then hop aboard the BC Ferry to cruise to Swartz Bay. From there, it’s back on a coach to the Victoria bus depot, near the Empress Hotel. The service is available seven days a week, so it doesn’t matter what day your cruise ship docks.

Well organized. We got off our cruise ship and they were waiting for us. Walked off the ship and onto the bus. We were dropped off only a block away from our hotel...wonderful!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Excellent transfer. Coach met us on time when we left cruise ship and transfer to Victoria was quick. Coach had priority spot on ferry and was first off at Vancouver Island. WiFi on board and helpful commentary from driver. Would recommend this transfer Bill


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This was an all-included trip from Victoria, BC to Vancouver, BC to meet our cruise ship. The bus station was near our hotel, and the whole trip was so convenient, as the bus actually boarded the ferry and we didn't have to transfer on either end. The ferry was huge and amazing, including a full dining area, arcade, and restrooms. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable, and we felt comfortable with his handling our luggage and delivering us to the cruise terminal. Overall, a great way to go!

A seamless way to get off a cruise and get to Victoria! I never would have navigated it easily on my own, as I had no idea how far from each other the cruise ship terminal and ferry terminal in Vancouver are and how far the ferry terminal in Victoria is to downtown Victoria. It was great not to have to haul luggage on and off various forms of transportation, too. The ferry ride was also very enjoyable.

It worked out extremely well for us. We were picked up at the cruise terminal in Vancouver, ferried to Vancouver Island and bussed to Victoria. The terminal was five minutes from our hotel. A quick cab trip got us to our destination with little effort on our part. Thank you.
