About
Victoria Harbour Ferry's boats provide the best view of Victoria...From the ocean! Take a Harbour Tour, historic Gorge Waterway Cruise, or hop on an H2O Water Taxi as you explore inner Harbour destinations. Visit us on the dock in front of the Empress Hotel. From there, a VHF Captain can take you to Victoria's best-kept secret: Fisherman's Wharf! Feed the seals, grab some lunch from Barb's Fish and Chips, check out the funky float homes, go for a whale-watching or kayak adventure with Eagle Wing or Kelp Reef, and pick up an ice cream cone from Jackson's on the way back into town! So much to do, and so much to see...Victoria Harbour Ferry!
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Take the gorge harbor tour! We took a tour with John as our captain. He is a native of Victoria and showed us so much. His stories were entertaining. This tour is worth your time!!

We did a 75 minute Gorge Tour, ($50 CA, per adult. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He spoke about historic neighborhoods, working shipyards, and many fun and interesting facts. It was as beautiful day on the water and we enjoyed the tour.

For a family of four to go one stop on the Harbour Ferry it cost over $40 bucks. So, it was a pleasurable experience, but way too quick for the money. We were on the boat for 10 minutes or so. Our captain was nice enough, Yves, but for value, the Harbour Ferry is just too much!

Such a wonderful experience! We really enjoyed it! The night view of the harbour, music along the ride and hot chocolate at the fishermen’s warf! We love this Santa sleigh experience and hope to do it again next year!

Very nice tours with a lot of history to learn. Very knowledgeable nice driver guide Simon. Not so friendly staff thought at the counter to get tickets and information. I recommend to buy your ticket online and ask questions to the guide driver.

We decided to do the Gorge tour on the harbor ferry and we very much enjoyed the experience. When we first left the dock and were still in the main harbor area, I was regretting the Irish coffee I had with lunch as the wake from other boats was making our ferry rock pretty good. That only lasted a few minutes and when we turned up the gorge, the water was as smooth as could be. The ferry operator offered up many stories and a lot of history about the area we were looking at. The scenery was beautiful and we got to enjoy watching a young black playing with it's ball in the ocean. Next time we find ourselves in Victoria, we will be going again on the other tour offered by the harbor ferry.

What a great way to see all the inner harbor. We accidentally found the tour when we took the water taxi from fisherman’s wharf when we were out in a long walk. Lots of history, information and good jokes. Thank Christopher!

Chris, our guide (and former mayor of Oak Bay), was truly amazing. His welcoming smile, extensive knowledge of the area, and storytelling abilities combined for a wonderful tour. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Victoria. It is worth every penny. And I do believe the Johnson Street bridge looks like a doorstop.
