  • Your travel dates don’t need to be on the same day as your whale watching excursion.

The Bus & Ferry (from Vancouver)

Are you coming from Vancouver? SpringTide staff can arrange your ferry tickets and organize your bus pickup to make your round-trip package easy.

Our staff will arrange for a shuttle bus to pick you up at one of the many downtown Vancouver hotels, or at the Vancouver International Airport. Shuttles are not available on all departure times, so please just ask us for more information. You’ll be shuttled to the ferry and then to the downtown Victoria Bus Depot – a short walk from our office. After that, it’s full-on delight as we head off to the open Ocean in search of Whales & other Wildlife! Once all the excitement has wound down,  you jump back onto the bus which will whisk you back to the ferry in time for one of the evening sailings.  For our bus and ferry package, your ticket is open-ended in case you’d like to stay in Victoria for an extra day or two.
