About this Trip

Indulge in the quintessential Victorian tradition with tea at the Fairmont Empress. Relax in the stunning, newly renovated Lobby Lounge and choose from a selection of 21 of the finest loose leaf teas. Pair your tea with a range of phenomenal treats, including warm scones smothered in rich, homemade clotted cream. A rite of passage in the Pacific Northwest, this is an experience not to be missed!

Hop aboard our high-speed Victoria Clipper catamaran in the morning for a scenic ride from downtown Seattle’s Pier 69 to the heart of downtown Victoria. Take a short stroll to the stately Fairmont Empress and cozy up in the beautiful Lobby Lounge for afternoon tea. Sip on a comforting cup of tea and feast on a lineup of mouth-watering treats. Use the rest of the day to explore the historic city of Victoria before catching the evening departure for a relaxing ride back to Seattle.
