Victoria-to-Vancouver ferry operator V2V Vacations cancels fall and winter sailings
CITIFIED.CA STAFF
Passenger ferry operator V2V Vacations is curtailing all sailings between mid-October and mid-March, Citified has learned.
 
The company’s downtown Victoria-to-downtown Vancouver catamaran service will make its final voyages for the year on October 15th, departing Vancouver’s Coal Harbour at 8AM and starting its return leg from Victoria’s Inner Harbour at 4PM.
 
Sailings will resume on March 15, 2019 with a sailing from Vancouver at 8AM and a return trip from Victoria at 2PM.
 
A company representative cited the potential for turbulent weather conditions throughout the fall and winter months along V2V's route – which could lead to service delays or sailing cancellations – as a driving factor behind the scheduling changes.
 
V2V launched its four hour downtown-to-downtown cruise ship-style sailings in the late spring of 2017, missing its May 1st launch which itself was pushed back from an initially anticipated mid-2016 inaugural sailing. By September V2V's single vessel, the V2V Empress, was moored at Victoria’s Point Hope Shipyards where it underwent major engine repairs that saw it sidelined until January of 2018. Since then V2V has operated daily sailings between BC’s two largest centres with one-way adult fares starting at $120. C
