While I remember the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival very fondly from my
grad school days, I'm not sure how it connects to the vexed problem of
getting to Victoria without the State Ferries operating.

I was interested to see that although tulips were introduced to Europe
from Turkey during WS's lifetime, he never makes reference to them.
Probably they lacked the resonance that roses, daisies, dead-men's
fingers and such had.

PS: Do not confuse Hump Tulips with the Festival. A pleasant place but
quite in the wrong direction.

There's also a great old ferry out of Port Angeles (on the Olympic
Peninsula) that runs across the Straits of Juan de Fuca to Victoria
inner harbor. An interesting option for those who want to tour the
Olympics during their visit.

If you're going to Vancouver, I highly recommend the Sylvia Hotel.

http://www.sylviahotel.com/

It's right across the street from English Bay in the East End (the thick
of things), right next to Stanley Park, and is remarkably economical. It
is also funky, not quite bordering on seedy. But I know many, many
people (including my mother, something of a stickler) who stay there
without a qualm. If you can book a room with a water view (to the west
over the islands) it's spectacular, but it's great in any case. Check
into their deals on suites with kitchens.
