V2V Vacations

V2V is a Canadian ferry operator providing a premium cruise service between downtown Vancouver and downtown Victoria in British Columbia. Covering a distance of 74 nautical miles, the scenic journey takes just over three hours of meandering through the Southern Gulf Islands, allowing you to admire the pristine waters of the nation’s westernmost province.

The vessel, the V2V Empress, is a -242-seat passenger-only catamaran with a choice of two classes. ‘Premium’ offers family style seating, a selection of local refreshments for purchase and access to the sundeck, while the more luxurious ‘Royal’ option includes priority boarding, a dedicated host to cater to your needs, concierge services, a welcome beverage, a freshly prepared 3-course light meal served to your seat, and unlimited non-alcoholic beverages throughout the journey.

Offering a uniquely beautiful, comfortable and convenient sailing experience, passengers have the option of a personalised concierge service on board using a list of local attractions designed by the company themselves. Customers can also make use of complimentary Wi-Fi and international USB power outlets located at each seat to make the journey even more enjoyable.

V2V Vacations was incorporated in 2015 by Riverside Marine, one of Australia’s leading Marine companies, making it the youngest subsidiary business and the first one outside of Australia.

V2V Vacations Customer Reviews

  • "A pleasant way to travel"

    Booked well in advance and decided to travel in the comfort cabin. All paperwork said get to the dock at least an hour before sailing - we got there at about 90 minutes ahead of the sailing time. There was no sign of life whatsoever, eventually at about 45 minutes before sailing somebody appeared to set up the check-in area and when we said about the times he looked bemused and said no half an hour was fine. Anyway as we were so early we were first on board and able to get seats at the front of the cabin which meant we had a good view of everything as we left Vancouver. Drinks and snacks were plentiful on board with complimentary hot beverages etc. Staff were a bit rushed off their feet but remained pleasant at all times. Crossing was calm with no problems of swel so a very enjoyable trip
