A lovely way to explore the many highlights of Victoria. Fisherman’s Wharf, China Town and Parliament buildings. To name a few. The Boat was comfortable and the Captain, informative and funny. Frequent taxis so no waiting

Cute little tugs. Buy a round trip fare as it is a little less.The children thought it was great to take the boat like a taxi. It is a great way to see the city from the water side.

Get a different perspective of this beautiful city by doing a hop off and hop on tour with a harbour ferry. We love to go around the inner harbour and make a stop for FIsh and Chips at Fishermans Wharf.

We enjoyed the ride and would recommend taking the ride if it is your first visit to Victoria. After that, send your guests on without you.

you can see the sea planes landing and taking off right beside you! Take the ferry to where the house boats are, enjoy some treats and walk among the house boats. Quite neat!
