Clipper Vacations

Clipper Vacations operate the Victoria Clipper passenger ferry service that connects Seattle and Victoria with year round daily departures as well as operating seasonal crossings between Seattle and Friday Harbor on San Juan Island.

The Clipper Vacations Seattle Victoria crossing gets you between the state of Washington and British Columbia in comfort and style aboard one of the high speed passenger only Victoria Clipper ferries. The three hour crossing sails through Puget Sound and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the way to Victoria’s Inner Harbour, located right in the heart of downtown Victoria.

For the ferry crossing between Seattle and the San Juan Island port of Friday Harbor you’ll board the Victoria Clipper ferry at Pier 69 in downtown Seattle before setting off for the three and a half hour scenic journey via Deception Pass to Friday Harbor! This service generally operates from May to September.

Onboard the ferries for both routes you’ll find comfortable seats with ample leg room so you’ll have space to stretch out and relax. You can enjoy a meal basket or a refreshing beverage served right at your seat or if you want to stretch your legs then step out on deck and observe the wonderful view.

With you can find Clipper Vacations timetables, fares and book Clipper Vacations ferry tickets. Where applicable we’ll also compare Clipper Vacations with alternative ferry companies.

Clipper Vacations Customer Reviews

  • "Fast easy trip"

    The overall trip was good, once on board the service was excellent, the journey was smooth and on time. The boarding at Victoria was a bit chaotic, with a distinct lack of information about how queuing and boarding happens. Seating was haphazard with poor signage and the staff did not always use the loud speakers when making announcements, this lead to passengers being in the wrong place and the blocking of aisles stopping other passengers from getting through.

  • "A great way to travel!"

    WE went from Victoria to Seattle. The journey was much nicer than flying. The check in was relaxed, the boat was superb. Seats had good legroom. The view of the wake was awesome. And the arrival was slick. Thanks!
