A Seattle Ferries to Victoria service is a maritime vessel used to carry passengers and goods over long distances.
Washington State Ferries operate 24 hours a day and sail from downtown Seattle to VICTORIA, BC. The ride takes about 3 hours and the fare for an adult ticket is $8 one way or $16 roundtrip.
Seattle is one of the largest cities in the Pacific Northwest region of North America and is the seat of King County, Washington.
It was founded in 1851 and incorporated as a city in 1869. It became the first major American city built on an entirely new seabed, as opposed to a coastal settlement.
Seattle's economy has been historically based on various industries, most notably logging, mining and maritime trade. The Seattle area first developed as a commercial center in 1856 around coal mining activities while urban development gradually followed suit with people living close to resources like timber and water. Today, Seattle's economy is driven by technology companies such as Amazon headquartered in nearby Bellevue and Microsoft Corporation headquartered just south of Seattle in Redmond.
Seattle's ferry system also has free parking available at the Bell Street Pier and it is only 10 minutes away from downtown Seattle near Pike Place Market and other attractions.
The boats themselves take you back in time with the retro vibe that they offer on board - the vintage photos on the walls, echoing sound of jazz music playing in the background, wooden benches with those old-fashioned fabric cushions and so much more.
