To and Across Canada

Aboard the Hovercraft "Victoria Clipper 4"
From Seattle to Victoria

Copyright © 2003 by David E. Ross

The trip took approximately three hours. Because of fog at the north end of Puget Sound, the hovercraft could not maintain its top speed through the entire trip.

Because everyone rushed to board in Seattle, I was unable to get a photo there. At Victoria, everyone then rushed to clear Canadian customs and immigration, giving me a chance to take this picture of the "Victoria Clipper 4". Unlike our later trip from Victoria to Vancouver, this is a passenger-only ferry.
