Victoria Clipper now offers a higher level of luxury aboard newest vessel


After the launch of their latest and greatest vessel the Victoria Clipper V, Clipper Vacations has steadily been elevating the ferry trip from Victoria to Seattle (and back again!) to new heights – this time introducing a new tier of travel called the ‘Vista Class’.

The Vista Class is meant to serve as the Victoria Clipper V’s middle class of service between Economy and Comfort Class, offering an affordable option when you’re looking to upgrade to a little something more.

The brand new Vista Class has only just been announced, and atop the upper deck of the vessel it offers spacious leather seats, panoramic views as well as ample table seating for small groups. If taking in the scenery from the outdoors is for you, the Vista Class has easy access to the vessel’s outside deck so you can enjoy a breath of fresh air and soak up the journey between Seattle and Victoria.

The vessel also has a gift and duty-free shop with locally sourced goods, as well as a full galley and on-board menu featuring regional food and beverage options along with Clipper’s trademark in-seat attendant service from onboard staff.

The bigger, smoother vessel the Clipper V is fairly new itself in that it only launched into service last March. Since then, it has enabled Clipper Vacations to have 232 less sailings in the past year without reducing capacity needs for their passengers, helping lessen vessel traffic in the Salish Sea.

The new Vista Class is only a $10 upgrade on top of your economy ticket (per way), and booking for the sailing upgrade will be available beyond May 1st – suddenly that summer trip to Seattle is looking sweeter than ever!

You can book your next trip with Clipper Vacations online, where they have everything from ferry tickets to overnight packages including hotel stays!
