This tour was amazing!
Easy to book. Everything as stated. Due to a "Funrun" in Vancouver many roads were closed and it was slow going. Just a long time on the bus. However if I needed to get to Victoria from Vancouver I would do it again.
Excellent, Friendly informed staff.
It was all good. No complaints, pleasant surprise actually. Only silly thing is that in most of your communications with me, including this one, you refer to my trip TO Victoria or my stay in Victoria. In fact I was traveling FROM Victoria and had no occasion to stay in that fair city.
Earlier on with this I had to go to the trouble to follow up to make sure you had my reservation down correctly as I did not want to be told at the gate that my booking was for the opposite direction. This needs sorting otherwise all was well.
Wonderful round trip. Very helpful the way they recommend seasickness pills before the trip starts. We had a smooth ride. The crew were very pleasant and helpful. It was easy to find the piers for the ship both in Seattle and in Victoria. Boarding both ways went very smoothly.
When trying to work out how we could travel from Victoria to Seattle as quickly and smoothly as possible I was so excited to find the solution on line when I typed in transport from Victoria to Seattle on my PC. Living in far away Australia the task of planning our recent trip to Vancouver and then down the USA West Coast to San Diego was an interesting one. I'm very pleased to say that discovering the Victoria Clipper and our subsequent trip on it was just fantastic - a huge planning success and a trip we will always remember well.
Booking with VIATOR was easy and efficient. I'm definitely telling my travel agent friend about it so she can recommend this company.
We were lucky that our 6pm departure from Victoria was rescheduled to leave at 5pm. Travelling in mid October, this allowed us more daylight time so we could appreciate the beautiful scenery during the first part of the trip. Facilities on the ferry were excellent and the staff were very professional and attentive.
Disembarking in Seattle went smoothly and we were soon on our way to our hotel.
Book the Victoria Clipper for your next trip to Seattle or Victoria. You'll love it.
on time any very good service
The trip was great and we had a wonderful, busy time. The Hotel (Grand Pacific) was beautiful and the accommodations were perfect. The only thing that we had concern about was a "Pending Charge" on our credit card. There was nothing owing when we checked out, but this charge (about $28.xx) showed up on our credit card statement. It was ultimately removed.
Thanks for a great time.
A great experience!
Easy boarding process with suitcases checked. Comfortable seating area. Basic food available was tasty and reasonably priced.
we loved it. we will return
Comfortable ride. Decent value. Wish there was more narration during the passage but, then again, half of the journey was well after sunset.
One suggestion to make: need to provide free WiFi DURING the ride to pass the time.
Considering we had ten foot swells on our return trip to Seattle, the crew was very attentive and assisted passengers as their needs arose. Would I take the ferry again ? You bet Ya. The sea captain kept us abreast of the weather and course while doing his best to navigate higher than normal seas.
Every aspect was very good
Easy way to travel - comfortable seats, easy to walk around, and it was quick!
The ferry cruise to Victoria was nothing but smooth and pleasant. We even enjoyed a brief glimpse of a whale! For someone from the middle of the country, it was fun to fantasize about commuting by ferry from home to work. Much more pleasant than being stuck in a car on the freeway.
This tour was amazing!
Great way to travel from Victoria to Seattle. On board commentary would have been good and a better system to retrieve luggage on arrival in Seattle would be good. Immigration staff at Seattle were not very welcoming, but really recommend the ferry as a way to travel

The trip was good. Fast service to Canada for sure. Worst thing, and this is happening everywhere, was a possible credit card issue when booking online. Yes, another hacking situation. I was offered a year a free credit monitoring though, which I thought was a good offer from the company. Yes, I would use this company again!!
Very enjoyable and relaxing before a 5 hour drive to our Inn
Boat ride was nice on way there, way back a little rough, nothing anyone can do about that. My girlfriend mentioned you need to change the way the bathrooms are as no one knows if they are occupied or not and people keep knocking. I also thought the breakfast that was offered was not great at all taking into account the cost of the trip of $135. each, muffin, some cookies, etc., not very appealing. Staff was very nice, boat was clean and boarding and departing all went very smoothly - very professional. Hope to do again one day, Thanks, Dale
The boat ride to and from Victoria was kind of boring, and the food items weren't that great. The seats were comfortable though. Victoria is a nice city but we couldn't find much to do there after walking all over. The architecture was very nice, and the highlight of our trip was actually visiting the Victoria Bug Zoo, where my daughter got to hold arachnids and bugs of all types. There was an option to go to the gardens via tour bus, and maybe that would have been a better choice than what we did. Overall, it was okay, and some parts were fun.
This tour was very enjoyable. We saw a lot of interesting marine life including several pods of Orcas. The information provided by the marine life expert was also very informative. The crew did an excellent job of communicating with others in the area to determine the best locations to find the Orcas.
WILDLIFE WAS AMAZING..SURROUNDED BY POD OF ORCA
