Great way to travel between Victoria and Port Angeles. Relaxing trip (1.5 hours) Get to the terminal early, best to make a reservation (very reasonable cost) Customs process on Canada side is a bit cumbersome - better on US side coming back to Canada.

The COHO is an amazing ferry. It is a 90 minute crossing from Victoria to Port Angeles. The only reason we gave it a four is because they could work on not putting the cars so close together that it makes it very hard to...More

We took the 8:15 ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria. The boarding process with a passenger car was easy and efficient. It's a tight squeeze getting out of your car once on the ship, but the seating up on top was comfortable. There was a...More

If you are traveling between Victoria and Port Angeles, this ferry offers fast, problem free service. But you need reservations because this route is very popular. We arrive 1.5 hours early as requested on website and we were one of the last cars on the...More

Drive your car on and park it. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view. A short while later you're on Vancouver Island and in your car for a quick check at customs and gone. You absolutely need reservations as the boats fill up often. Walk...More

It’s alaways a thrill to cross The Straits of Juan de Fuca! It’s quite a journey of only 90 minutes. Your crossing into another country as well as is a treat. I always feel safe that the crew is doing their job!
