Highlights / General details

Located on Vancouver Island, this full-day, narrated tour allows you to enjoy both the journey and the destination. Begin and end your day with a cruise between the mainland and Vancouver Island, past the scattering of picturesque Gulf Islands and on to Victoria. Rich with art, history and architecture there is plenty to see and do in Victoria. Its mild climate, where flowers are in bloom year round, helped to earn its moniker “The Garden City”.
