V2V Vacations delays launch of Victoria-to-Vancouver passenger ferry service
Published April 27, 2017
Just days ahead of its May 1st launch a Victoria-to-Vancouver passenger ferry operator has cancelled bookings and pushed back its first sailing to an undisclosed date, Citified has learned.
In a statement released on April 26th to early ticket purchasers, V2V Vacations confirmed it will provide travellers with the option of a full refund or an opportunity to switch their sailing date and receive a complimentary ticket upgrade.
Citing crew training as the reason for the delay, the company stated that it plans to begin services within a “few” weeks while it works to solidify "crew training and to ensure that [it] can deliver the best and safest possible experience."
V2V Vacations is operated by Australia-based Riverside Marine which will operate a once-daily sailing between Victoria’s Inner Harbour and Vancouver’s Coal Harbour. One-way fares start at $120 for a roughly 3.5-hour crossing. C
