We could tell the Clipper has been in business a long time. They have every detail perfected. If you buy your tickets through Viator, you get on in the first group. It was nice to be able to choose where we sit. The boat was very full on the ride over on Saturday morning, but not as much on Saturday pm because many people stay for the weekend. Seats were comfortable. There is not much to see along the way so bring something to do...cards, book, movie, etc. Minimal food is available for purchase by credit card only, but what they have is good. You can bring your own snacks/drinks if you want. Allow some extra time for disembarking as it is don't in groups. Overall, a great way to get to Victoria for the a day or two.
What a great way to travel from Seattle to Victoria BC. Roomy seats and great staff made for a nice adventure. We were fortunate to see Orca Whales on the trip to Victoria BC. Loading and unloading was organized and orderly. Would highly recommend taking this day trip.
The day trip from Seattle to Victoria on Victoria Clipper was amazing. For those who have motion sickness - the boat is so fast and powerful that you feel no motion, and they also offer free dramamine, so my husband who is usually reluctant to travel by sea felt great. The crew is fantastic, bringing you food and beverages, answering questions about Victoria, young, polite, knowledgeable people. It takes 2 hr 45 min, which doesn't feel too long. The only thing is that you need to get to the pier by 6:30 in the morning, and our tickets didn't say that we must be there one hour before departure. It's a good thing we went to check out the location of Pier 69 the night before and asked if showing up at 7:20 am is OK (the departure is 7:30). The guy at the booth said that their boarding ends at 7:15 and the tickets are non-refundable. We were lucky to go there and ask!
Interesting experience. Well run and managed trip. Fascinating boat — very fast and very smooth. Didn’t seem to take the two and a half hours or so that it did. Very comfortable and attentive service and information in board. Staff very accommodating. One of the fastest boats of its size in Western Hemisphere! Highly recommended mode of travel to and from Victoria. Oh, make reservations early to get early seating group and suggest you arrive 45 minutes or so early to get in queue.
The overall experience was very good. The clipper was clean and the staff very helpful. It is cashless, so be prepared to use your credit card for all purchases. The only downside was the ac on full blast, making for a chilly ride back. Take a sweater. I recommend an overnight stay, as the one day trip only gave enough time for one or two sights in the city.
