So basically, economy runs you $40 less than a Harbour Air flight to and from the same destinations for 10x the crossing time.

I wonder how much it would be if two tugs just towed the $425,000 Queen of Burnaby back and forth?  $90 for adults maybe?

When I start my water tricycle business, I hope to offer a one-way package from Cattle Point to Vancouver.  I just need to negotiate overnight parking with Oak Bay for day-trippers.

 

For safety my trikes will have a little more tread on the front wheel.

For someone that has never done Active Pass, this if done right will be fine.  It's the doing it right that might be hard.  Certainly Victoria residents will be a tiny fraction of their passengers.  But that's somewhat true for Clipper too.

Harbour Air consistently has seat sales under $100. Weather permitting, it's a great way to go.

Your Mt. Tolmie/Mt. Doug zipline failed after numerous gruesome setbacks and several years later your solar apartment scheme is still tied up in insurance claims. Give it up; you are the worse than Trump's casinos.

What has the right of way in Active Pass? My trikes, or BCF?

And by one way package I mean some will not survive the trip.

And HA gets those fees because Government employees fill up a lot of the flights, and they pay those fares because they deem their time to be too valuable to take a ferry or less expensive method.

 

I don't see the market being big enough at these prices to make a go of a business outside of peak tourist season.

Because it's a long trip, over 3 hours, likely vodka lemon, to stave off scurvy.

If V2V really wanted to treat their passengers they'd have an on board "medical" marijuana dispensary. No license or prescription required! I mean it's a 3.5 hour trip; that's a long time to go between "treatments".

That is expensive! Pacific Coastal is 40 less and even with airport waits and transfers much faster.
