Victoria Harbour Ferries

This Tuesday, I had a meeting at the CRD building downtown. A very quick hop on the #6 bus takes me right downtown so this is my usual mode of travel to these meetings. However, there is a new option for Esquimalt commuters (and any other locals)...the Victoria Harbour Ferry!

After the meeting I went for a walk and found the Victoria Harbour Ferries office at 1234 Wharf. It is right on the water (and you can see the ferries parked there when you cross the blue bridge). For just $65 dollars I purchased an Ambassador Pass which allows me to travel for the season. There are a few exceptions to note:

The pass is valid for harbour hops to and from all stops excluding Bamfield Park and Tillicum Landing. Ambassadors can hop on any day of the week in April, May, June, September and October. In July and August travel is limited Monday through Thursday .

It also offers some discounts at local businesses. For more info check out their website:

See you on the ferry!
