V2V Invites Australians to Sail Canada’s Beautiful British Columbia Coast in Style in 2019
V2V Vacations, the new Australian owned and operated premium catamaran experience that connects downtown Vancouver and downtown Victoria, has invited Australians to join it cruising the beautiful coast of British Columbia, Canada in 2019. The unique service navigates the stunning regional coastline between the two city centre harbours, while travelling in style on the V2V Empress catamaran – a quintessential experience not to be missed by Australians visiting Western Canada in 2019.
Linking the cosmopolitan city life of Vancouver with Victoria’s historic-yet-hip allure, the scenic voyage aboard the 242-passenger high-speed V2V Empress sails daily from March 15 to October 31, 2019. The journey of less than three hours and thirty minutes is the only boat service that transports passengers directly from the heart of Vancouver city right into Victoria’s historic Inner Harbour, offering a more time-efficient and comfortable alternative to the car ferry that operates from outside both cities. During high-season, between April 16 and September, the journey through Active Pass and the Georgia Strait to Vancouver is a sunset cruise that captures the city’s perfect skyline and summer activity along the city’s famous Stanley Park Seawall.
“The waters of southwestern British Columbia are some of the most spectacular in the world, so it’s high time for Australians visiting the region to be offered this opportunity to voyage while enjoying the rare scenic beauty, learning about the region’s rich culture, and tasting local cuisine,” says Julian Wright, the Australian General Manager of V2V Vacations. “At V2V, we make travel convenient without the usual lengthy transfers to outlying ferry terminals, so you truly relax and prepare for exciting day trips or extended stays in two of Canada’s most scenic city destinations – vibrant and bustling Vancouver, and quaint, charming Victoria.”
From aboard the V2V Empress, guests can enjoy a choice of two stylish seating classes, an impressive selection of local BC cuisine, wine and crafts beer, complimentary Wi-Fi, and access to the sundeck for a spectacular 360-degree view perfect for wildlife watching. Ergonomic leather seating wired with individual USB ports and power outlets means the trip can be as productive as pleasurable. A concierge service allows guests to make bookings from an exclusively curated list of cultural and authentic attractions at both destinations.
Vancouver’s varied shopping, stylish hotels, inventive dining and hopping cultural scene thrive in a chic but laid-back metro setting where mountains, forests and ocean meet.Victoria charms visitors with its British bent, with pubs, candy shops, tea houses and specialty stores to explore, and impresses with its culturally rich museums, surprising mews, lush gardens and many important institutions as British Columbia’s provincial Capital.
V2V Vacations is owned by Riverside Marine Group, one of Australia’s leading marine companies operating a number of diverse divisions since 1926. The concept for V2V was envisioned by Riverside Marine’s CEO Hume Campbell and his wife Rowan. Being lovers of the sea, they longed for an easily accessible way to get directly to Victoria from Vancouver without sacrificing the ocean experience.
