Kick off your Victoria sightseeing adventure from Canada Place in downtown Vancouver. Choose your departure time based on operating hours, meet your pilot and board the seaplane for an exciting water take-off.
Leave behind Vancouver’s busy harbor for the dramatic beauty of the Gulf Islands. You’ll have 35 minutes to soak up great panoramic views of the city, island passageways and snow-capped mountains before landing in Victoria. From there, design your own sightseeing itinerary. Perhaps you’ll indulge in some shopping at the island’s unique boutiques and antique shop, or tour atmospheric neighborhoods like Chinatown and Oak Bay. Don’t miss top attractions like the Butchart Gardens and the Empress Hotel, known for its fabulous traditional English tea service.
After your self-guided tour, head to the coach station for a ride to the ferry. Flash your ticket and grab a comfortable seat on the ship for the scenic ride through Active Pass and the Gulf Islands to Vancouver. Note: Total return trip time is 4.5 hours.
