Experience the world's best location to view whales in the wild on a 3-hour watching tour from Victoria, British Columbia. Immerse yourself in the majestic beauty of the Pacific Ocean and its migrating orca whales. The Juan de Fuca and Haro Strait are renowned for their ample wildlife, including animals such as resident and transient killer whales, humpback whales, minke whales, seals, sea lions, as well as many marine birds. With this this 8-hour package you'll also hop aboard a shuttle afterward and head to the tropical Butterfly Gardens and onto the Butchart Gardens, one one of the world's premier floral show gardens.


Be collected from your Victoria hotel in the late morning and prepare for an exhilarating 3-hour whale watching adventure on either a covered vessel or a zodiac inflatable boat (depending on option selected).

Afterward, you'll hop on a CVS shuttle to the Butterfly Gardens and stroll through this tropical wonderland where you'll experience the warmth, beauty and romance of a tropical jungle filled with plants native to tropical rain forest environments. Stroll along the trails past organic vanilla beans growing on the vine, papaya trees, coffee beans, ginger, and many other foods of the world growing in the organic soil.

Next, stop at the historic Butchart Gardens. Over a century ago, Jennie Butchart began building what is now one of the world's premier floral show gardens. Take a walk through the beautifully manicured grounds laced with stone pathways and trickling streams. The gardens change dramatically from season to season and offer activities for everyone, from greenhouse tours to a living fossil walk, ice skating, dining, and more.

Be taken back to your accommodations at the end of the tour.
