BC FERRIES OFFERS DEEP DISCOUNTS ON INTER-ISLAND ROUTES
Save 75 per cent on select sailings


VICTORIA – Now that summer has finally arrived, BC Ferries is launching a promotion on select sailings on 11 of its inter-island routes from July 6 through September 1 for local residents and vacationers to soak up the savings. The promotion is designed to encourage customers to travel on less busy sailings by giving them a discount, freeing up space at more popular times. 

Customers with flexibility in their travel plans can save significantly on standard or overheight vehicle fares when they travel on select early morning or late evening sailings. The promotion applies to specific inter-island (non-bookable) routes where there is capacity available.

The 75 per cent discount off the standard rate will be applied at the terminal and is not available for purchase in advance. BC Ferries recommends customers arrive early to ensure they make it on the sailing of choice.

Regular fares will apply for driver and passengers, however, those travelling with an Experience™ Card can still access savings on applicable routes for driver and passengers. Learn more about the BC Ferries Experience ™ Card.

The following routes are included in the promotion:
  • Victoria (Swartz Bay) to Salt Spring Island (Fulford Harbour)
  • Crofton (Crofton) to Salt Spring Island (Vesuvius Bay)
