Highlights
    What to Expect
    This day trip starts with a seaplane ride from downtown Vancouver to Victoria, over the scenic Gulf Islands, located between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia.
    Upon arrival in Victoria, explore the city at leisure. Then take a motor coach to the famous Butchart Gardens, one of the top tourist attractions in British Columbia and ranked by USA Today, CNN and National Geographic as one of the top display gardens in the world. Butchart Gardens has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada because of their international renown.
    Take approximately two hours to explore the beautiful grounds.
    The unforgettable Sunken Garden is a must-see, featuring cradle beds of annuals, flowering trees, and unique shrubs. Concert Lawn Walk displays a domed Children’s Pavilion and Rose Carousel with 30 hand-carved wooden animals and chariots. The Rose Garden showcases roses of every kind — marked by name, origin and year — plus a frog fountain and wishing well. There are also Japanese, Italian and Mediterranean Gardens to enjoy.
    For the return trip to Vancouver, enjoy the luxury (and speed) of a modern, 62-foot aluminum express cruiser, complete with indoor-outdoor viewing areas, heated passenger seating areas, onboard washrooms and a small snack area.
