While in Canada, experience Victoria’s wide selection of outdoor activities, and see the beauty of the Butchart Gardens on this guided tour by air, land, and water from Vancouver. First, take a helicopter flight over the Gulf Islands to spend some free time in the Garden City. See the Butchart Gardens before hopping on a speedboat cruise back to Vancouver.
Take a helicopter ride in a comfortable Sikorsky S76 from downtown Vancouver to downtown Victoria over the spectacular Gulf Islands. Spend the day exploring Victoria and the Butchart Gardens. Return to Vancouver in two hours by speed boat at the end of the day.
Victoria is a delightful small town with quaint houses, manicured gardens, and lush greenery. Victorians are friendly and civil. The shops along Government Street reflects their British influence. Here you can hunt for linens, china, antiques, and woolens. Dozens of tearooms offer afternoon tea with cream puffs and dainty sandwiches.
Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Vancouver including hotels, private residences and Air B&B’s, and take you on a spectacular Helicopter ride over the Gulf Islands.
Explore Victoria until about 2:00 pm when a shuttle bus takes you to the
famous Butchart Gardens. Entrance to the gardens is included in your ticket.
Depart from the Gardens private dock directly on a 2-hour high-speed voyage to Vancouver. The "Ocean Magic" is a modern 62-foot aluminum express cruiser capable of cruising with stability and comfort at 30 knots an hour and can carry up to 74 passengers.
The vessel features outdoor viewing areas, heated passenger seating areas, on- board washrooms and a small snack selection.
You will be back in your hotel in time for dinner.
