Vancouver – Victoria – Vancouver
Today we’re going to start a lovely exploration of British Columbia’s capital Victoria!
We will depart for an exciting flight over the Gulf Islands to the beautiful Victoria by seaplane from Vancouver Harbour. From there we will start a two-decker coach tour to the famous Butchart Gardens, filled with a variety of beautiful flowers. You will then have plenty of free time to explore Victoria on your own, just steps away with plenty of shops, museums, and other attractions.
In the afternoon you are free to return on a scheduled flight of your choice to downtown Vancouver.
The Westin Bayshore Hotel in Downtown Vancouver hosts this full-day whale-watching excursion from Vancouver to Victoria. Check-ins begin early in the morning, and check-outs follow shortly after. Since the tour does not wait for late passengers, please arrive on time. To begin, board a boat and sail out into the Salish Sea.
Your guide will inform you about the whales and other marine life that can be found in the region. You could see whales, sea birds, and other animals if you keep your eyes open for the hours you’re out on the water. After that, set aside some time to wander around Downtown Victoria.
You have complete freedom of how you spend your time. You will visit several shops and restaurants in Victoria. Then it’s time to board your seaplane for the return flight to Vancouver. View the area’s scenic sights from above, including the Gulf Islands. The Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre is where your flight lands and departs from.
