Dolphin & Whale Watching, Victoria

4.5
Hit the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean on a whale- and dolphin-watching tour from Victoria. With expert naturalists to provide interesting facts about the local wildlife, you'll cruise Juan de Fuca, Georgia, or Haro Straits, while keeping your eyes peeled for big marine creatures and playful seals and sea lions. A covered two-story boat guarantees a comfortable trip, but a fast-moving, inflatable Zodiac boat ensures an opportunity to get closer to the whales. Half- (5-hour) and full-day (10-hour) combo excursions can include a visit to Butchart Gardens and its blooming flowerbeds, wine-tasting tours of Saanich Peninsula, or sightseeing in Victoria. Shorter tours last 3 hours.

Where to stay in Victoria

The curling waterfront Wharf Street, which becomes Store Street, offers the best selection of lodgings in the city center, although you can expect to pay extra for the trademark views. Many travelers opt to stay in the neighborhood of James Bay, where Belleville Street and surrounds provide comfortable and even luxurious options. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, look south to the expansive Beacon Hill Park.
