Getting to South Island

The South Island is accessible a few different ways. For those coming from Vancouver, the Tsawassen to Swartz Bay ferry is extremely scenic and the fastest way to get from the Mainland to the South Island by car. For those already on Vancouver Island, you can access the South Island via the Malahat Highway (Hwy 1), or take the scenic route (Hwy 14) through Port Renfrew and Sooke.

By air, the Victoria International Airport (YYJ) welcomes guests from Westjet, Air Canada, Pacific Coastal, and Swoop, just to name a few. Short-haul floatplanes, operated by Harbour Air and Kenmore Air, connect the Victoria Harbour to Vancouver.
