Outings to British Columbia

Set Sail for British Columbia Aboard the M.V. Coho

When you stay with Red Lion Port Angeles, you'll not only have convenient access to exciting activities in Port Angeles, but the surrounding area as well. With a terminal in Port Angeles, Black Ball Ferry Line is prepared to carry you from Washington State to Victoria, British Columbia via its flagship M.V. Coho.

The only daily, year-round passenger and vehicle ferry service between downtown Victoria and Port Angeles, the M.V. Coho has transported more than 22 million passengers and six million vehicles over the past fifty-plus years. Originally carrying freight trucks, in addition to passengers between Seattle, Port Angeles, Port Townsend and Victoria, the M.V. Coho has focused specifically on the Port Angeles to Victoria passenger and vehicle route since 1973 and has developed an unparalleled record of reliability over the decades.

The M.V. Coho was named after the silver salmon found in waters of British Columbia and Washington State crosses the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Victoria's Inner Harbour and Port Angeles. In addition to a gift shop and cafeteria serving a variety of hot and cold food and beverage items, the ferry boasts close-up views of the Olympic Peninsula and natural wildlife via floor-to-ceiling windows, outside decks and a covered solarium.

Be sure to check out the M.V. Coho's current schedule and view upcoming events to better plan your trip.
