Why Others are Staying a Little Longer

We hiked coastal trails, saw whales and basked in the Island lifestyle. My memories of our family trip to Victoria stick out more than any others because it had a different pace and was ultimately a place we could all relax and explore together.

Victoria is still as beautiful as ever, but it also feels energized. We made some great memories during our short stay — walking through the colourful neighbourhood of floating homes, shops and restos that make up Fisherman’s Wharf was def one of them! Have you been to Victoria?

Like walking on another planet. Mesmerized by the beauty of the tidal pools at Botanical Beach.
