Victoria Island is located in Canada's high arctic so I'll presume that you're referring to Vancouver Island where the city of Victoria is located. The best ferry for you to catch would be from Nanaimo to the Horshoe Bay terminal in Vancouver which will put you right at the south end of the highway to Whistler. If you are travelling in the summer, I would highly suggest a reservation. The link to BC Ferries is below, you are looking for the Departure Bay to Horseshoe Bay transit.

This map on the BC Ferries website shows the routes and all the cities you mention, so it should answer your questions.

It depends on when you coming and what day of the week it is, or if you will be here on one of our long weekends. When are you coming?

Here is the website for the ferry from Port Angeles, in Washington state, to Vancouver Island. It docks in downtown Victoria in the Inner Harbour -

Best post on the Seattle forum about the advisability of reservations. However, the folks on that forum will need to know the same info that Mufti has asked to respond to your question about reservations on BC Ferries.
