We’ve all been there: you’re planning a quick weekend getaway to Vancouver, but the prospect of hopping in the car, sitting in a ferry lineup, and competing with other passengers for a single wall outlet to charge your phone makes it all feel like a big drag.
Luckily, there are better options out there, which is why now’s the time to book a sailing with V2V Vacations aboard their twin-hulled catamaran, the V2V Empress.
This daily luxury cruise service links downtown Vancouver and downtown Victoria, making for a relaxing and enjoyable trip without the hassle of dealing with other travel services.
Here are four reasons to book a sailing with V2V Vacations:
It’s no secret that sailing around the Island offers some spectacular views, and travelling on the V2V Empress is no exception. Departing from Victoria, you’ll meander through beautiful islands, exit through Active Pass and then sail across the Salish Sea, straight into downtown Vancouver Harbour. Start to finish, you’ll be treated to a uniquely beautiful display of ocean scenery.
The V2V Empress departs from Victoria once a day at 9 a.m. from the Steamship Terminal building at 470 Belleville Street — just a short distance away from the Hotel Grand Pacific, Fairmont Empress, and other accommodations. Upon arriving in Vancouver, you’ll have convenient access within walking distance to all the major visitor amenities in the downtown core, including five-star upscale accommodation at the Fairmont Pacific Rim and the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel.

Of course, the scenery would be nothing without the comfort and convenience on offer aboard the V2V Empress itself. The vessel offers a personalized and authentic luxury experience, including two stylish onboard seating classes, free-on-board Wi-Fi, a selection of local cuisine, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage service.
At $120 per adult ticket for premium seating ($60 for children), a trip aboard the Empress was already a solid proposition. But right now, V2V Vacations is offering a Buy One Get One promotion until May 27th, 2018.
It’s the perfect opportunity to take advantage of V2V’s Royal Class ticket, which includes panoramic views from leather seats, a welcome beverage, delicious local food coupled with locally brewed beverages, and concierge services—all for $180.
Talk about a sweet deal!
