Vancouver Island Ferry Company is proud to introduce Hullo!

Hullo is a ferry service that connects people between downtown Vancouver and Nanaimo in a formerly impossible 70-minute trip. A new initiative of the Vancouver Island Ferry Company (VIFC), Hullo is fresh, bold, and exciting, while still staying rooted in established business practices and honoring age-old traditions.

Partnerships with Snuneymuxw First Nation

Hullo is honoured to have a long-term partnership with Snuneymuxw First Nation (SFN). The sacred Snuneymuxw waters have cared for the people of this land since the beginning of time. We honour this beautiful relationship with every breath and every step.

We are deeply grateful to the Salish Sea and give thanks to the Ancestors for nurturing this timeless relationship. We thank SFN for sharing their teachings on how we can nurture this bond together.

The Saarlequun Snuneymuxw Treaty of 1854 forever and always preserves and protects these sacred waters. The Ancestors were brilliant to enter into this Treaty, as it continues to stand as the strongest agreement available to Canada.

Crew Culture: Working at Hullo

We’re all about raising the bar. Our obsession with safety and delivering an unforgettable guest experience is only matched by our passion for constant improvement. We don’t settle for the ordinary – we encourage our Crew to think outside the box, innovate and make waves.

But don’t worry, it’s not all work and no play. We believe that having fun and being engaged are key ingredients for success. That’s why we strive to create a dynamic and enjoyable work environment where every team member has a say in shaping the future of the organization.
