Clipper ferry service between Seattle and Victoria, B.C. will resume on Sept. 17 for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
FRS Clipper announced Tuesday that it plans to operate a four-day schedule over weekends and also add extra sailing around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons. Bookings for the resumed service will begin on Sept. 6. Masks are still required on the vessels per the state's new indoor mask mandate, but can only be removed when guests are eating, drinking or outside on the viewing deck.
"The pandemic has had a devastating impact on our company like so many others, but I'm incredibly proud of the support from the Victoria community and my staff's resiliency and determination to return to our core international operations once again," said David Gudgel, CEO of FRS Clipper in a news release. "We could not be more excited to reinstate our safe, trusted fast ferry service and to provide the core connection between Victoria and Seattle that so many have relied upon for travel over the past 35 years."
