“A nice drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is probably so much prettier when the sun is shining. We saw it all on a cloudy day. It was nice. Comparing it to other view along our trip ... looking back on it ... it was just nice.

“Scenic Marine Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is one of the best ocean trails in an urban setting, So much to see in this busy harbour, we walk along the harbour front every time we are in Victoria. One of the best things to do on a sunny afternoon

This is a must drive if you have visitors. The views are breathtaking and you may even see some whales.
Bring the camera.

“Always a "must"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

What a pleasant drive this is. Wild scenery, spectacular homes set precariously on rocky points, several lookout spots, interesting boats going by or moored on the horizon.

“A Driving tip:”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Having done the drive many times, I recommend starting driving from James Bay and travel North. The locals use the route as a back way into the Inner Harbour area and can get impatient if you are driving slowly and enjoying the view while travelling South. Travel in a Northerly direction, and there is less traffic and pressure from other motorists to keep to the speed limit, and you can pull over safely if you see something interesting.
