Looking for Things To Do in Victoria? Here’s a tip, hop aboard a Victoria Harbour Ferry and set sail for an unforgettable marine adventure around Victoria’s waterfront. Victoria Harbour Ferry Captains will chart a course that’s filled with fun for every member of your family.

A Victoria Harbour Ferry is definitely not like a BC Ferry or any other Victoria ferries. Those other Victoria ferries are BIG and they carry cars, trucks and busses. Victoria Harbour Ferries are small and cute ‘tiny tugs’ that do only 5 knots on the water and they carry only people!

The Victoria Harbour Ferry Company was founded in 1990 with just two ferryboats. Today they own and operate a fleet of 14 small passenger ferries that sail the waters around Victoria, B.C.’s Inner Harbour and the neighbouring Selkirk and Gorge Waterways.

All but one of their ferry boats were built on Vancouver Island, can travel at speeds of up to 7 knots (12.5 Kilometers per hour or 8 Miles per hour) and can carry up to 12 passengers plus the Skipper. Several of their little ferry boats have traveled a distance the equivalent of one and half times around the equator.

A trip aboard a Victoria Harbour Ferry is a fun-filled maritime adventure when visiting Victoria, British Columbia, at any time of the year; it’s one of Vancouver Island’s “must-do” tourism activities.
