I am taking the clipper to Victoria from Seattle on Saturday May 24th. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about the deboarding process in Victoria. Does it take a long time to get through customs and show your passport? Is there a good spot to try to sit on the ferry to minimize the time? I am going on a tour directly from arriving in Victoria and do not want to miss it.
Also, how far in advance should I plan on being at the ferry station in Seattle and Victoria?
