Cruise stop in Victoria - How to get to Fort Rodd Hill

Our cruise ship stops in Victoria for the day 9am-6pm. We have booked the hop on/off bus to see the city but we are really interested in seeing the Fisgard Lighthouse. Any easy/cheap ways to get there from the cruise port? Dont want to rent a car.

It would also depend on the day of the week that the poster is in Victoria. Sunday and holiday service on the bus is limited, sometimes only hourly.

It would be quite the ride on a bike unless you were used to riding, but I guess if the enthusiam and fitness level was present, it could be done

here is a link that you might be interested in

It's a bit of a walk up and down along a paved road to the Fort and the Lighthouse. Entrance fees (cheap) listed at pc.gc.ca/lhn-nhs/… . It only takes a few minutes to tour the lighthouse but the Fort can take quite a while if the subject matter is of interest. Right across from the Lighthouse is Esquimalt Lagoon which is a bird sanctuary, and a beach.
