The CPR ran harbour to harbour before BC Ferries came along, but these smaller boats that are trying to make a go of it are not feasible in the lumpy gravy weather during the winter.

The crossing is too long and there ain't too much to do, so most folks would rather travel on a ship with more amenities.

It was also an era when harbour to harbour flying was not available.   

 

CP and Union Steamship provided a lot of services up and down the coast till the late 50s because it was the only way to get a lot of places.  With more roads and more cars, the nature of ferry travel changed.

For anyone who wants to give them a go, they're re-launching service with a 50% discount on Premium (the most basic) fares until the end of April

I am still puzzled as to why V2V doesn't lower its fares overall in order to attract more customers. The current model doesn't seem to be filling many seats.

I just tried to book with them, I've been on before when they had the first season intro rate - it isn't a bad way to travel but I'd like a window seat.

 

I understand they are relaunching (or re-re-relaunching) with their 3rd staff roster in 2 years (+ sales exec #6).  I am guessing they are going cheap because all guests will be part of their "trial runs" and training.  I'll pass. Not in the mood to be a part of some on board fire and safety drills!

 

Consistently inconsistent should be the motto.
