Cruise smoothly across the breathtaking Strait of Georgia and visit Vancouver Island, including the beautiful Butchart Gardens and Victoria, the most romantic city in Canada. On the 90-minute cruise you can relax and admire the forested shores of the Gulf Islands while your guide explains all. On a good day you might catch a glimpse of bald eagles far overhead, or of huge whales such as orcas, humpbacks and minkes travelling through the glassy inlets. See why they call the Strait of Georgia a marine wonderland as you explore this pristine habitat.
Drop anchor at Vancouver Island and then be transported at the captivating Butchart Gardens. This National Historic site of Canada features fifty-five acres of stunning floral show gardens, which will take your breath away no matter the time of year. The gardens are particularly known for the colours that shift throughout the year, from autumn’s umber tones of aspens and maples to the riotous shades of spring.
After you have had ample time to soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Butchart Gardens, head to the stately city of Victoria, where you can enjoy a city tour. See the grand waterfront Parliament buildings and the picturesque Empress Hotel, and visit Beacon Hill Park where wildlife flourishes alongside the city.
