It was an amazing experience! The clipper was clean and the seating was very comfortable. It departed at the right time and brought us home at the right time. The experience was really exhilarating and the crew people were all very kind. Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable.

Great experience to and from Victoria. I suggest a one or two night stay in Victoria. The only drawback was that the attendants onboard were too slow serving food! I recommend to bring your own!

Victoria island is clean. It was a sunny day. I took the hop on and hop off tour. It was very nice. I enjoyed a meal and cocktail close to the ferry. I’m glad I went
Beautiful Victoria
Maria_P, Jun 2023
Victoria is beautiful, the weather was wonderful and we enjoyed walking seeing the gorgeous flowers and greenery. The only negative is that it’s too long a trip for a few hours in Victoria.
Victoria BC day trip

The seating was good and comfortable. Service was good and very interactive. The waves were very choppy but the crew kept us updated.

Buyer beware! We had a horrible experience with Viator. We booked a round-trip Victoria Clipper ferry ride from Seattle to Victoria in May. When we returned to the ferry for our return trip to Seattle, the ferry service told us we were only on their list for a one-way from Seattle to Victoria, not on the passenger list to return. We had emails confirming a round trip was ordered and paid for, but since it was booked through a third party (Viator), they had no recourse. We were forced to stay overnight in Victoria (hotel and meals costs), take a sea plane back to Seattle the next day (flight costs), rebook our missed return-home flight (add'l flight and meal costs), stuck in DFW due to mechanical problems (costs covered by airline), and finally home 24 hours late (add'l airport parking and pet care costs). We have written to Viator requesting refund and compensation, but have received no response. You should book directly with the ferry company, NOT VIATOR!
Easy trip

No Wi-Fi on board For a technology city it was terrible Couldn’t even watch a movie to pass the 3 hours
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi, sorry to hear you were disappointed with your trip. Unfortunately there is a bit of a black hole for Wi-Fi during our crossing of the Salish Sea and thus the service is not provided. Nonetheless, guests do have service for the majority of our journey via any major carrier. We also like to encourage putting technology away to enjoy the scenic journey and take a tech detox.

Day trip to Victoria Canada
Bonnie_V, Nov 2019
We had a wonderful time. Make sure to park where the ticket tells you to as the boat will give you validation for free parking. Also upgrade to comfort class for only $10 for a much better view, seat and tables.

Very nice trip - great for a full day of fun
Cathy_L, Nov 2019
My husband and I booked this trip since he has never been to Canada and I wanted him to see Victoria. I am on a cane, so the staff in the port - especially on the arrival to Canada - were awesome and took me to the head of the line and looked after me. The trip was pleasant, staff was great and we had fun - thank you to everyone - I am a southern girl and you showed us the south is not the only place with hospitality - Thank you !!!!!

When I made the reservation I was not offered option of comfort and vista class seating. When we upgraded in Victoria they were having difficulty. They said that there are always issues when they try to upgrade a Viator reservation.
