As Victoria is on an island, the only way to visit in your car is via one of the ferries … either a BC Ferry from the mainland (Vancouver) or a ferry from the U.S.A – either Port Angeles, WA, Anacortes, WA, or Seattle, WA.  There is NO bridge or tunnel!

So it can sometimes take a bit of planning to come over!  You’ll need to make sure when the ferries are sailing and if they’re full/delayed etc.  A good idea if you know when you’ll be coming is to make a reservation on the sailing you intend to catch.

Please see the post on getting here by water for more info and details on various ferries and their schedules.
