About Us


For more than 30 years, our little ‘pickle’ boats and charismatic captains have been traversing Victoria harbour connecting locals and visitors to the city’s waterfront neighbourhoods, shopping districts, parks and trail networks. Our experienced captains are natural entertainers known for their love of the ocean, passion for storytelling, and unrivaled safety records. Recognized as one of the city’s most treasured attractions, we are proud of our privileged opportunity to share joy and local knowledge with our passengers, many who come to experience the splendor and intrigue of a harbour tour, and many more who simply come seeking a water taxi as a unique and scenic way to travel. 

We look forward to welcoming you on board. Thank you for your business. Have fun.

All vessels are equipped with life jackets and our captains and dock staff are well trained and follow strict health and safety procedures. Although provincial health restrictions pertaining to Covid have been lifted, we request that anyone who is presenting with symptoms or feeling unwell refrain from traveling. Full refunds will be provided.

Thank you for entrusting your care and your enjoyment with us.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard!

We offer gratitude to the Lekwungen speaking peoples on whose traditional lands we are working

Victoria Harbour Ferry respectfully acknowledges that we are on the homelands and waters of the Lekwungen speaking peoples, the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, who continue to be the keepers of this beautiful land and the stories connected to it.
