Getting There

Victoria can be reached by air, sea or land. The Victoria Clipper runs from Seattle, Washington to Victoria's Inner Harbour, nearby Sidney and the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal (about a half hour from downtown). Visitors can also reach Victoria by airplane or seaplane, as well as motor coaches that run from both Seattle and Vancouver. Regardless of the way you decide to arrive in Victoria, don't forget to bring your passport - you now need it to enter Canada, even by land.
