Victoria is renowned for its wildlife viewing, especially in the nearby waters. Marine wildlife thrives in the surrounding ecological reserves like Discovery Island, Race Rocks and Sidney Spit. Orcas (killer whales) are most frequently sighted, but these marine parks also offer incredible views of elephant seals, harbour seals, Steller and California sea lions, seabirds and bald eagles.
Victoria's regional and provincial parks provide prime habitat and great viewing opportunities for many animal and bird species. Many tours leave right from downtown Victoria.
