As the first company to operate high-speed catamarans in North America, the sleek, striking state-of-the-art vessels have become our signature. Our fleet consists of two high-speed catamarans (the Victoria Clipper and the Victoria Clipper IV), which are used for passenger ferry service and travel between Seattle and Victoria, BC in a little less than three hours, and one catamaran (the San Juan Clipper) used for Seattle/San Juan service and whale watching excursions.

Onboard our vessels you will find comfortable, roomy seats, a selection of locally-sourced and freshly prepared meals as well a full range of beverage options available for purchase, duty-free items on international sailings and open deck space for getting a breath of fresh air or soaking in the sights. With scheduled departures year-round, the Clipper fleet carries thousands of passengers every year for business and vacation fun.
