V2V Vacations is a great experience and a viable alternative for travel between Vancouver and Victoria for visitors and residents alike.
Stewart Turnbull introduced Harbourside to V2v Vacations which is offering a viable alternative for travel between Victoria and Vancouver.  Operated by Riverside Marine in Australia, Stewart talked about how the company came to Canada, what their company values are and what services are offered.
V2V Vacations operates the Empress daily from the Steamship Building in Victoria to the Harbour Ferry docks in Vancouver.  The trip takes approximately 3.5 hours as it is almost 70 nautical miles of travel versus the 21 nautical miles that BC Ferries travels from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen.  With a capacity of 250 passengers in two levels of service, V2V offers exceptional service including food and drink, internet connections and luxury seating.   
The company believes in supporting local businesses and as such Truffles provides all the catering and the unique "orca" design on the ship was done by a local artist, Billy Cook.  In addition, partnerships have been developed with Harbour Ferries, Butchart Gardens and a number of other tourism services so that the visitor can experience all Victoria has to offer.
Stewart's 16 years with Celebrity Cruises has well equipped him to ensure every aspect of the trip is a seamless experience and all done with exceptional service.
