The Ultimate Day Tour

Highlights / General details Our 62' covered cruiser, the Ocean Magic, takes a breathtakingly beautiful route across Georgia Strait and through the Gulf Islands on an expedition to find marine mammals, from little Harbour Seals to the magnificent Killer Whales and Humpbacks that roam our waters. The whale watching tour concludes in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, where you will have time to explore the city and discover our neat shops, attractions and restaurants. Shuttle buses will depart from downtown Victoria throughout the afternoon, to deliver you up to the world famous Butchart Gardens for a couple of hours of leisurely strolling and a chance to stop and smell the roses. That evening you will re-board the Ocean Magic at The Garden’s private dock, for a two hour sunset cruise back to beautiful Coal Harbour in Vancouver, just in time for dinner! Do note that many people are so enchanted by the beauty of Victoria that they want to spend the night and return to Vancouver with us the next day. We are happy to recommend our partner hotels if you would like to make this a multi-day tour, so just ask our friendly agents about what kind of plans they can make for you.
