Overview
See Victoria, British Columbia on a full-day trip from Seattle aboard the Victoria Clipper, a passenger-only ferry that follows a scenic route through the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands. In taking to water, you avoid the long drive to Canada and have time to explore Victoria’s historic downtown, harbor, and gardens before the return trip to Seattle, traveling on a boat with comfortable seats, a cafe, and duty-free shops.
What to Expect

Make your way to Seattle’s Pier 69 for an early morning departure, bringing your US passport, passport card, enhanced driver’s license, or enhanced ID card for arrival in Canada.

Settle into a comfortable seat, and enjoy views of the Puget Sound as you cruise to Vancouver Island, watching for whales, seals, and birds along the way. There’s a duty-free shop on board, as well as cafes and outdoor viewing decks. Upon arrival in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, set out for a day of exploring the historic city, the capital of British Columbia, on your own.

You might browse downtown shops, visit the Empress Hotel for high tea, or make your way to the sprawling Butchart Gardens just outside of town.

At the end of the day, return to the Inner Harbour for the trip back to Seattle, enjoying late evening light as you retrace a path through the San Juan Islands.

We arrived at 7:30 and were able to find two seats together. If you have a bigger party then I would advise you to arrive earlier.
