What better way to spend a day than whale watching off the coast of Vancouver and exploring the city of Victoria? Enjoy these two incredible experiences on this excursion, plus choose between returning by sea plane or by speedboat!
Victoria & Whale Watching Cruise Itinerary
On the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Vancouver. From there, you'll head to the city's port, where you'll board a comfortable whale-watching boat for the cruise over to Victoria, a city located at the south of Vancouver Island.
During the boat trip, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy one of Canada's most popular activities, seeing if you can spot the incredible marine mammals that live in the waters around the Pacific coast of the country. Thanks to the presence of salmon here, whales are very common in this region!
As well as whales, you'll hopefully be able to spot orcas, dolphins, sea lions and even bald eagles soaring majestically overhead! After around a four-hour boat cruise, you'll arrive in Victoria, where you'll have free time to explore the most emblematic monuments of the city at your own pace, like the Butchart Gardens.
At around 5 pm, you'll meet back up to climb aboard a sea plane that will take you speedily back to Vancouver in just 30 minutes. The perfect end to an incredible day!
Motorboat or sea plane?
When making your reservation, you'll have the choice between two ways to make the journey back to Vancouver. Pick from travelling back by motorboat, the more economical option, or choose the unique experience of gliding back by seaplane!
