The Victoria Clipper is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this July and they will have special promotions to celebrate. One of those promotions is for those who have a birthday in July – you’ll get $25 off your overnight package  which includes a round trip on the Victoria Clipper and at least one night of a hotel stay.  This is valid on adult packages only. You must book by June 30th & travel between July 1st – 31st.

The Victoria Clipper also has a special Summer promotion happening thru May 26th.  If you book a package with a trip on the Victoria Clipper & a hotel stay in Victoria thru Thursday May 26th, you can get rates as low as $99/person (depending on which hotel you choose) for travel on the Victoria Clipper thru July 7th.  Kids travel free with each paying adult. This is a significant discount from the rates later in the summer for the vacation package (rates start at $249 for 1 person, when I just checked online for August).

You can stay up to date on the Victoria Clipper specials by becoming a fan of the Victoria Clipper Facebook page or follow Clipper Vacations on Twitter.
