- The Queen of Oak Bay operates on the regular scheduled sailings between Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay (Nanaimo).
- The almost-identical sister ship of the Queen of Oak Bay is the Queen of Surrey. They are both C-class ships and are basically the same as the Queen of Cowichan and the Queen of Coquitlam. The Queen of Oak Bay and Queen of Surrey have a larger passenger deck and the bridges are closer to the ends of the vessel to make docking easier.
