Tourists traveling for the first time from Seattle to Victoria can sometimes find it difficult to deal with this entire ferry system and find the fastest, most convenient or affordable option, since Seattle can only be reached from Victoria by private ferry.
Not only that, if you travel by your own car, you should know that you can get to Victoria from Seattle by ferry only without a car — fortunately, most of the city's attractions are located near the port, you can leave the car in Seattle. But if the availability of a car is important for you, or you planned to travel further by car, you will have to go to another city and get from there by another ferry that delivers passengers and cars.
In any case, Victoria on Vancouver Island is a great place for tourists! Victoria is considered the most “British” city in Canada in spirit, this reputation is promoted by a large number of British pensioners who have moved to this country's warmest climate city. There are red double-decker London buses in the city, and in the center there are several typically English shops and pubs. Victoria is known for its attractive, decorated with flowers embankment, on which the ancient Empress Hotel is located, where every day at five in the afternoon tourists are served traditional English tea with shortbread.
