Victoria's Oswego Hotel Package Includes Roundtrip Passage on MV Coho

MV Coho arrives in Victoria's Inner Harbour.
My two favorite ways to travel to Victoria on Vancouver Island are via Kenmore Air and the Black Ball Ferry Line. If you don't have a lot of time, Kenmore Air is a fast and scenic way to go. It's about a 30-minute flight from Seattle's Lake Union to Victoria's Inner Harbour. The Black Ball's MV Coho is a 90-minute sailing through the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Port Angeles, WA and Victoria's Inner Harbour. But it's such a cool ship and a fun way to travel -- and you might even see a pod of orca like I did on a trip last summer. 
The Oswego Hotel is in a quiet residential neighborhood near the Inner Harbour.
The Oswego Hotel is offering a dandy package called Sip, Savour and Save. The package includes: 
  • Round-trip ferry fare on the MV Coho
  • Overnight in a one-bedroom suite
  • Two (2) passes to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria
  • BC wine or locally brewed craft beer 
  • House-made caramel truffles
  • Complimentary parking 
Package rates start at $108 per person/double occupancy for walk-ons and $152 per person/double occupancy for drive-ons. Click on the Black Ball link to book online.
A stroll along the Inner Harbour from The Oswego Hotel brings you to Fisherman's Wharf.
