App Description

The premier app for information about getting on and off Vancouver Island by sea and air.

Hello travellers! Have you ever been frustrated trying to figure out when the ferry is leaving from Vancouver to get to Victoria? Have you ever been in Seattle, heard about Victoria and wondered: “Well, just how do I get there?”

Dactyl Applications is proud to release our love letter to our hometown: Crossing the Pond. BC, Canadian, and world travellers will appreciate the ability to check travel and weather information about Vancouver Island, including:

•BC Ferries
•Washington Ferries
•HeliJet
•Airline Flights
•…and the latest weather forecast in your current location and in Victoria!

The beautiful background art for Crossing the Pond is the result of a collaboration between Dactyl Applications and Victoria artist Misha Smart of Misha Smart Artworks. Misha's unique and vibrant art has previously been featured on Victoria street banners - her West Coast-influenced aesthetic is a superb addition to Crossing the Pond's interface.

Victoria is a unique blend of old world charm and new world experiences. As an island destination, Victoria offers visitors an escape from the hurried world and beams with ambience. Boasting the mildest climate in Canada we are green and beautiful year-round. In fact, Vancouver Island, where Victoria is located, is rated the top island in the Continental US and Canada and one of the top ten islands in the world by the 2012 Travel+Leisure World's Best Awards.
