This is a great ferry ride between Victoria and Washington. On Oct 21, 2017 the morning ferry left promptly at 8:20. The process to board, as a foot passenger, was easy, safe and efficient. The employees were nice, helpful and made the experience worry free....More

This ferry does the job of getting you from Victoria to Port Angeles (or reverse). The sailing are limited. Since you have to be at the terminal ahead of time, I recommend reserving. We were even able to prepay our return portion.

We enjoyed our trip across on the Black Ball Ferry. I only wish we could have gone both ways, but didn't get a reservation early enough. Food availability is limited and I wish fares were in Canadian dollars or I would have rated higher. Outside...More

Great ferry. Customs was easy to move through. Able to see whales from deck, food was good, friendly staff members.

I have used this ferry twice, bike and motorcycle. Most enjoyable is the time spent on the outdoor deck. Amenities are just right, nothing over the top. Can’t wait for the next crossing.

Very cool travelling on the ferry that has been operating since 1959 (I believe) and never missed a scheduled run! Wasn't overly impressed with the wait through customs but it's to be expected.

Having never road a ferry of this size it was an interesting experience. The crew was nice and got us on and off efficiently.

Efficient service between Victoria and Port Angeles. Smooth ride. If you don't have a reservation try to get early. The boarding was fast. It looks like the guys there know their job.
