Business notes: Get from Mill Bay to Victoria airport by water with Bay to Bay Charters

As well as the airport, Arsenault can transport folks to North Saanich, BC Ferries and other points

Earlier this month, Bay to Bay Charters began offering a water taxi service from Mill Bay to Victoria International Airport via Deep Cove Marina with drop off or pick up service from dock to door in less than 30 minutes.

The comfortable service is provided by Capt. Miles Arsenault and his vessel K de K.

“She was built in 1985 for a tug operation and lived her life on the Fraser River,” explains Arsenault of the eight-passenger boat.

“She was built really strong, really nice and I look forward to being of service to the Island. She is the perfect vessel for these waters.”

As well as service to the airport, Arsenault can transport commuters to North Saanich, BC Ferries and other points in the area.

There is also service available from Cowichan Bay, Genoa Bay, Crofton and Chemainus.
