Clipper Vacation

Hello from the Victoria Clipper IV!

The Clipper is so cool! What a fun way to travel!

Interesting facts about the Clipper:

  • The Victoria Clippers are some of the world’s fastest catamarans.
  • The speed of the Clipper is about 35 miles per hour.
  • The 71-mile voyage between Seattle and Victoria takes about 2.5 – 3 hours.


For breakfast, I grabbed a quick egg and cheese sandwich on an English muffin. I didn’t snap a pic because we were in such a rush to make the Clipper on time. (We had a slow start this morning.) I also enjoyed a hot coffee with soy milk.


Can you tell that I am totally psyched for Victoria?!? Whee! I love vacation!


Mal spent the first 20 minutes of the ride talking to AT&T about possible international charges during our trip to Victoria.


To avoid international charges when using your iPhone, Mal was told to do the following:

  • Turn Airplane Mode ON
  • Turn Data Roaming OFF (under Settings –> General –> Network)

Even if you do these things, you will still be charged international rates for any sort of “data transfer” (i.e. phone calls, internet, email, and text message, etc.). However, you will not be charged for using applications already downloaded onto your iPhone.

I have a serious backlog of posts from my time in Seattle, but I will blog about them soon enough.

Stay tuned for more from Canada!!!


  1. Oooooo…you are so going to love Victoria! I hope that the weather is glorious for you! Yes, the Clippers are pretty cool and so fun!

  2. Too bad I’ve moved offices to the other side of the building, otherwise I could have watched from my desk to see when your ferry came into the harbour! Actually, now that I’ve said that, it kinda sounds creepy.

    Looks like the weather might be nice for your stay in Victoria 🙂
