The V2V offers three classes of seating starting at $110 per passenger each way for the 3.5 hour trip, which includes complimentary Wi-Fi, USB plug-ins and international power connections at every seat. Passengers can also enjoy food and drinks onboard with menus inspired by B.C. created by the Truffles Group.

A concierge service is available onboard to help passengers make bookings for attractions at both destinations during the voyage. The vessel is also equipped with stabilizer systems to improve the voyage through rough sea conditions.

Late last year, V2V’s chief executive Hume K. Campbell announced the company was relocating its home port from Coal Harbour in Vancouver to Victoria’s Inner Harbour. Visit v2vvacations.com.
