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
