We had a party of six - what a personalized comfortable experience. Dillan was awesome. He explained all the sites and history of the area in a fun and relaxed manner. Answered all of our questions not only about the lakes and sound, but, Seattle in general. He was bartender, navigator, and tour guide all in one! We highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in a nice relaxing narrated ride around Seattle.
Very enjoyable and straightforward trip. It was easy when both boarding and also disembarking with excellent service from very helpful and friendly staff whilst on board. Recommend travelling this way if deciding to visit two excellent places!
Despite the rain we had a very enjoyable cruise on Lakes Union and Washington. Most of the reservations were cancelled due to the weather so we had the boat almost to ourselves,except for 5 other passengers. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly. They have a cash bar onboard so my husband and I enjoyed an Irish coffee.It took the chill off in a fun way.
Doing what: Lake Union Cruise from Seattle
We were very fortunate that Dylan was able to accommodate our last minute booking. We celebrated my mother-in-law's 60th birthday, and the whole evening was perfect! Dylan answered all of our questions and told great stories. Don't wait til the last minute, book now!
2 hrs 45 min trip to Victoria, BC from Seattle. This is an awesome way to go! Super comfortable seats with tables and food available!
Captain Dylan was super knowledgeable and showed us a great time on the lakes. The boat is truly magnificent. Highly recommend it!
Great trip which was timely and very pleasant.
I noted that the price for a round trip ticket, direct with Victoria Clipper was 176, whereas I got a better deal with Viator RT. The service was delightful all around, and highly recommended, from the Port of Seattle, on Pier 69, to the heart of beautiful downtown Victoria, in the Inner Harbour. I did the round trip all in one day, as I was only in Seattle for a short trip. They give you approximately 7 hrs in Victoria, from when you actually get off the boat, and when you disembark again. Be certain to allow sufficient time for the customs on both ends, going and coming, as they do allow only 200 USA to be carried into the US, when your stay is only 48 hrs or under, duty free. If you exceed this, your entire purchase is taxable, with no exemption. There is a duty free store on board the ship, food and beverage services, comfy seats, 2 decks, and all is cash free on board, so be prepared. They also offer tours, if you so decide to do that, while in Victoria. I did the truly magnificent Butchart Gardens tour, which ran about 4 hrs total. If you love flowers, it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth! And Canadians are very friendly and funny too. A truly GREAT day out, I made the sacrifice of early rising, as we departed at 8am, and weren't back until a little past 9pm, with customs still ahead...BUT SO WORTH IT!
Great, friendly service. Great way to travel !
Arrive early, get your coffee on the ferry! Getting to the ferry terminal for the one way crossing from Seattle, Washington to Victoria, British Columbia was a cinch by cab. However, don't even think about buying your coffee as you wait for the early morning crossing. The line is super long and so slow. Instead, get onboard and run a tab at the coffee concession booth. You'll get free refills and prime seating. Just head there as soon as you board. With Viator we were the first to board and it felt great. The crossing itself was easy, smooth and a great introduction to Victoria. Plus the ferry was clean, had plenty of restrooms, and a great gift shop. Terrific trip.
Ease of travel between to fabulous cities, including a comfortable bus, scenic ferry, helpful and amusing driver. The ferry was a highlight of the tour, sailing between islands and offering food and vistas of a beautiful country. We gladly tipped our driver who transported us so helpfully and lifted all our heavy bags. I highly recommend this mode of transportation.
Pleasant and easy trip to Victoria
A variety of seats are available, some at tables. Super service. The staff even gave us a newspaper to read about the visit of Will and Kate which coincided with our arrival in Victoria harbor
We had the most amazing tour of Lake Union, Lake Washington and listening Dylan tell us information about the area. His story of how he began his journey was quite interesting - I highly recommend this Cruise!!!!!!
We had such a beautiful day and a fantastic cruise on the lake. Dylan was a great host with lots of information and we have already recommended this trip to friends.
First, I did not go to Seattle, because I live there. This trip is the return half of a round trip Seattle TO Victoria. The trip itself was very nice.
The day we sailed to Victoria, B.C., there were large swells in the open waters. The staff gave us all anti-seasick pills and informed us we would be taking an alternate route through the islands. We were worried it would be a very wild ride, but it ended up being very smooth and we had beautiful scenery the whole way. It did add an extra hour to our trip but it was not a problem. No one was seasick when we arrived sand we had a lovely time. Thank you.
