Question Victoria to Seattle for Disney flight

Good morning fellow Disney lovers. My family and I are heading to Disney in January 2013 (Can't Wait!) Our issue is my son who lives in Victoria B.C. will be flying out of Seattle. My question for all is does anyone have an idea of the most economical way to get from Victoria to Seattle. I have researched till I'm dizzy and there is no clear answer. Thank you in advance for any and all tips.

I drive from Vancouver and overnight at a hotel near Southcenter Mall that has park & fly rates, and airport shuttle.
If driving isn't an option, I know from YVR there is a shuttle bus that will take you to SeaTac. And I believe there is a bus from YVR & Victoria.
Other then this, I don't know.

Looks like everybody is stumped, or else they're watching football.

There's a passenger/vehicle ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles. Will your son have a car? If not, he could take a bus to SeaTac. The website is www.cohoferry.com and mentions www.olympicbuslines.com.

Don't know how economical this is but it's the only option I know of besides Greyhound and flying.

I'm thinking the ferry to Port Angeles will be the most economic and the easiest. Thank you so much for your quick reply. Will probably get more replies when football is over.

Have you considered the Victoria Clipper? It is passenger only but leaves from Downtown Victoria. Here is a link to their website which shows the terminal locations includes a link to directions to SEATAC.

Depending on your son's location this might be the most convenient. I believe the Port Angeles ferry leaves from Sidney.

According to their websites, both leave from Victoria's inner harbour on Belleville Street. The ferries leaving from Sidney are the provincial ones heading to Tswwassen and the Gulf Islands.

I think both the Clipper and the Coho are possibilities for the OP's son.

There are a few options

From Swartz Bay (North of Sidney) to Vancover and then drive down to Seattle. Must drive over the border. B C Ferries.

From Sidney to Port Angeles need to drive to Seattle from ferry.

From Downtown Victoria (Inner harbour) Coho again will need a car to get to Seattle.

From Victoria to Seattle on the Clipper. Probably the fastest method. Passenger only. Can get ground transpotation from Port of Seattle to Airport.

problem solved!!

Thank you everyone for your time and info. We now have things figured out. My son and daughter in law will be taking the clipper to Seatle from there it is a short 2 block walk to a shuttle that will take them directly to Seatle Airport and the price is an amazing $3 per person. Thought I would update you all and leave the info for anyone else with similar plans in the future. 5 weeks to go and so excited
