(Victoria Clipper)

In our opinion, it’s always a good time to visit Seattle!

But especially now, as we head into spring and warmer months, what better way to shake those post-holiday blues than with an incredible trip for two to one of the Pacific Northwest’s best destinations.

If you’re looking to get off of the rock for a couple of days, look no further than Clipper Vacations and the chance to win two round-trip Clipper ferry tickets to one of the most lively and exciting American cities there is.

Not only is Seattle just a quick trip from Victoria’s harbour – making it easier than ever to get away – it’s also home to some of the west coast’s most talked-about restaurants, shopping and a lively nightlife. With all of the charm to keep you coming back for more, the vibrant city is always a top choice for vacationers!

Without further ado, here are 6 reasons why you need to sail away to Seattle:

1. The newer, bigger Victoria Clipper V makes travel easy

The high-speed Victoria Clipper V catamaran is a big, stable ferry that cruises at 36 knots and takes you from downtown Victoria to downtown Seattle in less than 3 hours.

Enjoy some of the tasty locally-sourced and freshly prepared meals and beverages from the on-board menu, all while taking in the Pacific Northwest’s most scenic views of the Salish Sea – you may even spot a pod of Orcas en route!

Also, with Clipper’s latest Spring Sale including huge discounts on overnight Seattle packages, you’ve got a deal that’s hard to beat – or you could win yourself a pair of round-trip tickets here!

2. Visit the iconic Pike Place Market!

Did you know that Pike Place Market is just a 15 minute walk from Clipper’s Seattle terminal? With tons of fresh produce, vibrant floral arrangements, tucked away watering holes, and storefronts for local favorites like Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt, it’s the perfect place to spend a Seattle afternoon!


3. Get your groove on with Wilco at Paramount Theatre

In Seattle for two days only, March 18th and 19th, this is one show you’re not going to want to miss!

Wilco’s Ode To Joy Tour will be touching down at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre featuring Young Fresh Fellows, one of their first few dates in the recently announced international tour.

Wilco is an American alternative rock band based in Chicago, Illinois, and was formed in 1994 by the remaining members of alternative country group Uncle Tupelo following singer Jay Farrar’s departure.
