Victoria Inner Harbour Sights
Inner Harbour Victoria BC
On the day I enjoyed the tour, it was a beautiful sunny summer day but the winds were quite high at the time, so our Captain made the decision not to venture too far out in the interest of safety. Once on board, you will cruise slowly in and around the harbour giving you a first- hand view of the harbour itself and the surrounding buildings including; the Parliament Buildings and the famous Fairmont Empress Hotel, a true historic landmark in the city.
Sea Planes in Downtown Victoria BC
As you make your way out of the harbour, you can enjoy the sights of the city on both sides of the boat, taking in all the busy activity in the harbour including; sea planes coming and going, beautiful yachts, water taxis, kayaks and so much more! You will also make your way past Fisherman’s Wharf, just minutes from the where you board the boat and a great place to enjoy fresh fish and chips on the dock!
The harbour is a buzz of activity in the summer months!
Cruise Ships, Passenger Ferries, Sea Planes, Whale Watching Boats and more!
When you reach the end of the harbour, some of you may be lucky enough to see cruise ships docked at Victoria Pier as we were on this day. It may be one yours if you have arrived in Victoria on a cruise.
A view of your ship from the water will make for great pictures!
