Open houses planned for next few weekends on Victoria’s Inner Harbour

Wondering about what it might be like to sail from harbour to harbour aboard the V2V Empress catamaran?

V2V Vacations wants to give Greater Victoria residents a sense of that and is opening the ship up for a series of open houses and ship’s tours over the next few weekends.

Between 6 and 8 p.m. this Friday and Saturday (March 16 and 17), as well as March 23 and 24 and April 6, guests will be welcomed on board for guided tours with the ship’s captain and crew, complimentary refreshments and light snacks provided by the catering team. Visitors will also have an opportunity to test out the different seating configurations and learn about the various classes available for booking.

Interested parties are asked to stop by the Steamship Building at 470 Belleville St. to check in.

The Empress runs one three-and-a-half hour sailing daily from Victoria to Vancouver at 9 a.m., with the return trip at 1:30 p.m.
