New ferry servicing Victoria’s Inner Harbour

The new service will work between the Steamship Terminal, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Ogden Point.

Victoria Harbour Ferry has launched a new marine shuttle service.

The new service, sailing as the James Bay Explorer, will provide tourists, cruise ship passengers, and locals with direct service between the Steamship Terminal, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Ogden Point.

The new service is an addition to the Victoria Harbour Ferry fleet of Harbour Tour boats, H2O Water Taxis, and Pickle Pub vessels.

The Lynda Mae 2, a 40-passenger, Canoe Cove-built vessel will sail on the hour from the Inner Harbour, directly in front of the newly restored Steamship Terminal building and right off the Lower Causeway.

The crew on the vessel will welcome aboard hometown and neighbourhood residents, cruise ship passengers, and tourists, many of whom will take the opportunity to visit downtown or the breakwater and Dallas Road.

The vessel will carry riders and their bikes, owners and their dogs, and families looking for a new experience travelling from Ogden Point to downtown.

It began service last Saturday.
