Great trip, but book through FRS directly.
Amanda_P, Mar 2024
The actual boarding and transit experience was fine. Crew was great, and the economy class was comfortable. Only downside was not knowing when the return trip information was and having to go get my tickets both time. If you actually book through FRS clipper you can select or upgrade your seats. Do be at the ferry terminal an hour prior to departure.
I would like to visit again and stay a little bit longer.

clipper ferry ride was a wonderful experience for the first time. we were able to go on the upper deck to see the view. being in Victoria to see the Buchart Garden was relaxing and enjoyable the touring the place and i am sure to go back to see the flowers in the month of June to July. i recommend to my family and friends to visit Buchart Garden. Just walking around town was lovely.
Not really a tour…
Lamar_T, Feb 2024
Not really a tour. Just a boat ride to Canada. I wish I knew that most of the attractions were closed for the season. Pretty much had to kill 4 hours on my own. The ship administration was decent, and the staff was friendly and efficient, except they kept assigning us seats apart. Wanted to go to Buchart Gardens, but this time of year, the shuttle doesn’t run. $60 dollars each way for an Uber, which doesn’t guarantee you return on time. I think a better description for winter is needed.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
The Clipper V provides ferry service between Seattle and Victoria BC. I'm sorry you were misled that this was a tour. The captain will point out sights along the way as well as whale sighting. Seats are assigned at the time of booking. If we are able to accommodate reassignment we will.
Amazing Day

We had an amazing time in this trip. Sterling, a crew member, was incredibly kind and gave us suggestions for things to do in Victoria. Our day was perfect!

Worthwhile Way to Victoria
Nikki_S, Nov 2023
Smooth boat ride with very accommodating and experienced staff. Food and excursions available for purchase on board. Recommend visiting Victoria in summer as gardens are less impressive (so we were told) in the winter. The hop on hop off bus does not run in November.
Fast and Efficient!
Victoria_G, Oct 2023
Very comfortable voyage, and friendly staff! Loved the views and the commentary from the captain on the different locations as we passed them.

Wonderful time in Victoria, BC. Cruise operators could have been more clear about timing for passengers to return to ship.
Great experience!

Unique Way To Travel
Jason_W, Oct 2023
The staff were extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend splurging for the comfort plus level. Wonderful views and amenities. Unique way to travel to Victoria.
Smooth ride and excellent crew!
Yuko_N, Oct 2023
My husband and I enjoyed a day trip to Victoria. It was plenty for us to walk around for about 5 hours.
Definitely a worthwhile...
Joseph_C, Sep 2023
Definitely a worthwhile trip and one that I would highly recommend. Every aspect of the trip was enjoyable, from the cruise to the shopping to the eateries. The scenary of Victoria BC is just breathtaking. We traveled around town ia th hop on/hop off tour, something I would highly recommend if you are only staying in Victoria BC for a day. We did upgrade our seats and was a little disappointed that the upgrade was not for the round trip but for only one way. Maybe that is something that should be explained upfront. All in all, the trip from registration, to parking to cruising etc, was hassle free. What a memorable trip!
Amazing experience!
Sweta_c, Sep 2023
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.
Trip from Seattle to Victoria
Lourdes_A, Sep 2023
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!
Rethea_W, Aug 2023
