Boating & Sailing
The Islands are surrounded by water, so what better way to get around them than by boat? The archipelago of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands provides boaters and sailors with some of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. A network of marinas and marine parks make getting ashore easy. Bring your own boat, rent from numerous charter companies or take a guided cruise. Getting out on the water is recommended to visitors to truly experience life in Victoria and on Vancouver Island.
If you'll be operating a power-driven boat while in Victoria or the surrounding area, don't forget, you will need your boating license! If you don't already have one, it can be obtained online from here.
