Service Information

A 10 passenger charter van is the most practical option if you are looking for a private transfer for a larger group.

These vans can accommodate 10 passengers and their luggage, in addition to 2 ski/snowboard bags or 2 sets of golf clubs. Please note that this vehicle cannot accommodate bikes, but be sure to check out our larger vehicle options in the Alternative Vehicles menu below if you need room for bikes or any other additional luggage.

What is Walk-On Service?

Our walk-on ferry service is by far the most affordable way to charter private transportation to or from Vancouver Island aboard BC Ferries.

  1. A friendly driver picks you up and delivers you to the BC Ferries terminal.
  2. Your driver will assist with your luggage as you check-in and you will board the ferry as a foot passenger (fare not included). Your luggage can be checked so that you are free to move about the ferry, enjoy the dining facilities and the beautiful BC scenery.
  3. Once you arrive at the destinatuion terminal you collect your luggage and proceed to the arrivals area (its just like arriving at the airport on a flight).
  4. Another vehicle will be waiting to whisk you off to your final destination.

Why Choose a Walk-On Service?

Eliminating the cost associated with having a vehicle and driver sitting in the ferry line-up, as well as the ferry fare for driver and vehicle in both directions, allows us to provide an exceptionally affordable cross-water charter service.

Using our walk-on service and boarding the ferry as a foot passenger you will save several hundred dollars each way without having to compromise on convenience.

Can I book a one-way trip only?

Yes, if you are using our online booking system, select 'One Way' and you will not be asked for your return trip date.

Can I pay cash?

No. We only accept payment by credit card (Visa, Mastercard or Amex). Full payment is required to secure your reservation at the time of booking.

Do I have to book in advance?

We can often find something for you within that time but our services can sell out - especially during busy periods (school breaks, holidays, game days, etc), so book early to avoid disappointment. If you are booking within 72 hours of travel always call us to check availability before you book - payment does not guarantee availability.

Do I need to tip the driver?

Bookings for bus and shuttle services do not include gratuity. 15% gratuity is standard in north America. Please do consider tipping for good service. For private charter services, gratuity is paid at the time of booking. We choose our partners very carefully and incidents or poor service are extremely rare. However, if an incident of poor service were to occur then we will gladly issue a gratuity refund and take up the matter with our transportation partner

Does the ferry Walk-On service include ferry ticket?

The Walk-On service fare does not include your "foot passenger" ticket. These are purchased upon arriva at the ferry terminal.

How much luggage can I bring?

The passenger capacity for each of the vehicles on this site are based on one large bag and a carry-on bag per passenger. Please take this into consideration when choosing the size of vehicle for your group. If you know that you will have a lot of luggage, please consider booking a larger vehicle. Contact us if you have questions regarding luggage capacity.

Is my booking guaranteed once I have made payment?

No, your booking is not guaranteed until you receive your confirmation email. This is a separate email from your payment receipt. This is because some bookings have special requests that must be manually reviewed before the booking can be confirmed.

What happens if you do not have any seats/vehicles available for the trip I have booked?

We will always strive to honour every booking made with us. On the rare occasion that we can find no availability however, this is not possible. Rest assured that if we are not able to confirm your trip then you will be refunded in full - though this may take 3 - 5 working days to be processed by the bank.

What if I need to change my booking?

Contact us if you need to make changes to your booking. Changes made within 72 hours of travel are subject to availability. Additional fees may apply to adding passengers, sports equipment and other services
