Description

Combine 2 popular local attractions into one and go on a whale watching safari from Vancouver to Victoria. Take an express cruiser boat through the Gulf Islands, keeping your eyes peeled for orca whales, and then spend the day exploring Victoria before catching a seaplane back to Vancouver.

After convenient pickup from your hotel or Vancouver residence, you journey to the docks to board Ocean Magic, a modern 62-foot (18.9-m) express cruiser. The vessel features outdoor viewing areas, heated passenger seating areas, onboard washrooms, and a small snack selection.

Cruise through the Gulf Islands as a trained naturalist explains the ecosystem. The waters between Vancouver and Victoria are teeming with wildlife and orcas, gray whales, porpoises, seals, and sea lions are often spotted. Observe bald eagles, blue herons, and a myriad of other shorebirds as you travel through the spectacular scenery en route to Victoria.

Once you've arrived at the harbor in Victoria, you are immediately greeted by views of the elegant Parliament Building and Empress Hotel. Then, take off into the sunset for a seaplane flight back to Vancouver.

Pleasant boat trip to Victoria. Guides were excellent and informative. Saw Orcas and humpbacks on the journey. Had adequate time to visit Victoria before returning by seaplane to Vancouver. The flight was quick but able to see beautiful scenery. Overall experience was great.
