How to Get to Victoria From Seattle
1. Take a Ferry
Taking a high speed passenger ferry from Seattle to Victoria is one of the most fun options that you get for this route. It will take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to do the trip while you relax on board of a beautiful boat while looking out the window as if you were cruising. There are two round-trip services from Seattle to Victoria every day.
Prices range from $115 – $160 USD
2. Seaplane from Seattle to Victoria
How about a non-traditional flight onboard a seaplane? This might be a bit of a splurge at around $160 per person, but it sure is fun to sit in the cockpit of a small plane and enjoy the views from above for around 45 minutes.
There are, of course, regular commercial flights that might be a chapter, but I don’t think that they are as fun.

3. Car – Mixed Road trip
This is probably my favorite route, but you need at least six hours to do the 140-mile drive that will take you along gorgeous roads and trams at moments. It will be quite an adventure!
As you can see, with the first two options, you can easily plan a long weekend trip. Now the road trip requires more time but might also be the best choice for those looking to do some in-depth exploration.
So, what do you think? Will you be doing the trip between Seattle and Vancouver or vice-versa any time soon? What do you think will be your preferred way of transportation?
Tip: Remember that regardless of the option you pick, you will need a valid passport to get from one side to the other.
