Vancouver Island Transport


Vancouver Island is easy to negotiate and there are several transportation options. Ferry services operate from both Vancouver and neighbouring Washington State in the USA, as well as between points on the island and the neighbouring Gulf Islands.

Scheduled flights by major airlines, as well as helicopter and floatplane services, are also available. There is a rail service between several island communities along the east coast, from Victoria to Courtenay, and the island's highway connects all major points. It also has loops to scenic marine-side highways.
