Victoria and the Butchard Gardens tour

Set out for adventure in the Salish Sea to visit the sights of Vancouver Island, including the breathtakingly beautiful Butchart Gardens and Victoria, the most romantic city in Canada. On the 90-minute cruise you can relax and admire the forested shores of the Gulf Islands while your guide explains all. On a good day you might catch a glimpse of bald eagles soaring far overhead, or of mighty whales such as orcas, humpbacks and minkes travelling through the peaceful inlets. See why they call the Strait of Georgia a marine wonderland as you explore this pristine habitat. Drop anchor at Vancouver Island and then be transported at the captivating Butchart Gardens. This National Historic site of Canada features fifty-five acres of stunning floral show gardens, which will take your breath away no matter the time of year. The gardens are particularly known for the colours that shift throughout the year, from autumn’s umber tones of aspens and maples to the riotous shades of spring. Stroll around the hundred year old estate and admire the Tsartlip and Tsawout First Nations totem poles, the quiet tinkling streams in the Japanese garden and the scent of roses, honeysuckle and jasmine. After you have had ample time to soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Butchart Gardens, head to the beautiful Inner Harbour area in the city of Victoria. You’re free to explore the beautiful harbour and grand parliament buildings, or treat yourself to high tea at the Empress Hotel. Or discover the amazing story of the beautiful Pacific Northwest with exclusive reduced entrance fees to the Royal British Columbia Museum. Wherever you wander, you’re sure of a day to remember.
