Clipper ferries set to ply Victoria waters come mid-April

Tickets available now for sailings between Seattle and Victoria

A Victoria and Seattle connector ferry is set to sail this spring after pandemic impacts halted trips last fall.

FRS Clipper is accepting bookings online only for its sailings between Seattle and Victoria starting April 15, and April 29 for its Seattle and Friday Harbor route.

Vaccinated travellers no longer need a COVID-19 test to enter Canada as of April 1. However, Health Canada requires that anyone arriving from outside the country wear a mask in public for two weeks.

The international fast ferry service between Seattle and Victoria suspended services in October 2021, less than a month after returning to local waters due to a lack of ridership. The familiar red, white and blue catamarans had returned to the Inner Harbour on Sept. 17, 2021 after 18 months idle.
