Whale WatchingMajestic mammals and marine wildlife abound in the waters surrounding Victoria, including the orca, or killer whale, and gray, humpback, and minke whales. Other aquatic neighbours include sea lions, seals, porpoise and many marine birds. Cruise with local certified naturalists and experts for a guided marine adventure to discover, observe and learn about these enchanting creatures up-close. Most voyages include a trip to Race Rocks Ecological Reserve, the southernmost part of Vancouver Island (and Canada) on the Pacific coast. The reserve is Canada’s first Marine Protected Area and home to an abundance of rare marine life.

How to Experience Victoria by Bike and on FootVictoria is incredibly bikeable and walkable – just ask the many locals who opt for two wheels instead of four. With so many attractions and amenities so close together, it only makes sense to park the car, and put on your walking shoes or strap on your helmet.
