Looking for another passenger ferry to take you to your destination, while also offering scenic views along the way?

Clipper Vacations is launching a new ferry service connecting Victoria’s Inner Harbour to downtown Vancouver.

Clipper Vacations currently operates a Seattle to Victoria ferry and also a Seattle to San Juans ferry.

While the cost of tickets hasn’t been released yet, the new ferry service will provide passengers with more options for traveling to and from the Island.

This is the second announcement of a new passenger ferry connecting the two regions.

V2V vacations said they will launch their luxury ferry service this May.
