  • It’s the ferry. You must take it if you want to go to Victoria and return to Port Angeles. They know what they are doing and getting your car on and off is quite rapid. We had our dogs with us and the...  more »

  • Couldn’t believe how easy catching the ferry was! I reserved our spot on line months ahead of our visit. We arrived 1 hour early as suggested, got in the line to board, got to a window and told her ou...  more »

  • Great service, friendly staff. Clean and super convenient if you travel to Canada. Dog friendly ;) Loading & unloading process was simple and easy. We were able to reserve our space online, book a hotel & excursions all as one package. It give us peace & comfort to travel abroad. We enjoyed our trip to Canada, Thank you Black Ball Ferry Line.
  • My cousin and I took the Black Ball Ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, BC. It was about an hour and a half, and a really pleasant journey. There were lots of seating options throughout the ferry, and plenty of opportunities to take photos of the amazing views (this was our first trip to Canada). The staff were friendly and professional, and the facilities were well-maintained. The trip was very smooth and it was easy to embark/disembark. We decided to leave our car in Port Angeles and walk on board. You can also bring a vehicle onto the ferry, however you need to arrive earlier and pay the applicable fees.
  • My family and I took a day trip Port Angeles—>Victoria—>Port Angeles on Wednesday, 8/29/18. Sailed out at 12:45pm, returned at 7:30pm. This allowed ~4.5 hours or so to walk around many of central Victoria’s sights. The sailings were wonderful, and I even saw a (gray?) whale on the return trip! The ferry departed on time, *to the minute*, both times. The duration was 90 minutes, as described. Prompt boarding and de-boarding process. Very clean ferry with plenty of indoor and outdoor ocean view space for all who want it. A decent cafeteria is also on board. No complaints!
  • The boat was clean enough, the crew was efficient and polite. Plenty of spots to sit inside or step out on the deck to watch our progress through the Sound. I loved the jigsaw puzzles left out to work on. We didn't try the food, but were happy to see they had something just in case we forgot to eat. Since the point was to get us across the water, I wouldn't expect food on a ferry to be better priced or tastier than a gas station eatery.
  • Took black ball ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria BC 1 hour 30 min till arrival part of the fun for a 5 day get away. Prompt and efficient in getting cars and passengers aboard on time. They have beverages cold and hot foods, Ivars clam chowder was very tasty! Comfortable,and staff were friendly as courteous,I would recommend this ferry line.
