Our media tends to focus only on the negative stories around our lifeline to the mainland so it is so refreshing to be reminded of this amazing experience that we often take for granted. Enjoy!

Firstly, I want to thank the BC Ferries Vacation consultants. They always responded promptly and I was very pleased with the pricing. With the Fall Vacations special, it was more economical to book our Victoria trip through BC Ferries Vacations than on our own.
We had a wonderful family vacation in Victoria. We stayed at the Chateau Victoria which is centrally located. The hotel pool was warm and the staff were friendly. The room was clean and the beds were comfy. We did a walking tour of downtown Victoria and visited the Parliament Building. Victoria is a family-friendly place to visit.
The best part of our trip was seeing a pod of orca whales on our ferry ride back to Vancouver. The captain came on the PA system and kindly drew our attention to their location. All the travellers on board were delighted by the sight of these beautiful whales. My children were so thrilled that they wrote about it in their diary!
Thank you for a wonderful family getaway!
