5 1128 Reviews | Add your review

The capital of British Columbia is Victoria, a medium-size town of about 350,000 some 60 miles (100km) southwest of Vancouver. Best known for its lush gardens and ornate architecture, the city is an easy day trip from Vancouver.

Cruise to Vancouver Island for a full day guided tour. Spend the day exploring Victoria including world-famous Butchart Gardens and one of the city's several excellent museums. Covering 55 acres (22 hectares) in a former limestone quarry, the Butchart Gardens are one of the world's premier floral show gardens.

Take a scenic seaplane flight to the famous island for a leisurely day of sightseeing before returning to Vancouver by ferry. Enjoy panoramic views of the city and its surrounds as you get a birds eye view of from the sky. Splash down and spend the day exploring Victoria's quaint antique shops and cafes, as well as the historic alleys of the oldest China town in Canada.

You can fly from Vancouver to Victoria on a 35-minute flight by seaplane and search for orcas on a whale watching cruise on Haro Strait. Orcas frequent the waters of Haro Strait between March and October to feed on the salmon passing through on their migratory route. See these magnificent marine animals in their natural environment for an experience no aquarium can rival. The underwater kelp forests of the Pacific Northwest ocean ecosystem also provide a rich food source for other wildlife such as seals, seabirds and sea-otters, all of which may be spotted during your tour.
