Direct sailings between Victoria and Seattle are slated to resume next month.
FRS Clipper says the Victoria Clipper high-speed catamaran ferry will resume daily sailings between downtown Victoria and downtown Seattle starting on April 15.
Daily sailings between April 15-18 will depart Seattle at 8 a.m. and arrive in Victoria at 10:45 a.m. They will depart Victoria at 5 p.m. and arrive in Seattle at 7:45 p.m.
Between April 22-Oct. 9, sailings will depart Seattle at 7:30 a.m. and arrive in Victoria at 10:30 a.m. Daily departures from Victoria during that time are scheduled for 5 p.m., arriving in Seattle at 7:45 p.m.
Victoria Clipper sailings have been halted since October. Sailings had resumed only a few weeks earlier when the company decided to halt operations due to low ridership and coronavirus restrictions. Prior to that, sailings had been suspended since mid-March 2020 due to the global spread of COVID-19.
