My wife and I are travelling to Vancouver in September and we would like to do a day trip to Vancouver Island. Any suggestions on which company provides the best experience.

Yes, Landsea Tours or Westcoast Sightseeing.

The day trip is about 12-13 hours long out of Vancouver. There is first a 4 hour journey, including a 1.5 hour scenic ferry ride. Then down to Vic for several hours. Off to Butchart Gardens for a couple of hours en route to Vancouver, via the ferry, arriving Van about 9:39 pm, I believe.



The ferry trip that is included is here: www.bcferries.com which will show you a ship or two. Youtube has several clips about BC Ferries to Victoria.

There will be no multiday tours around VI. It takes 6 hours to drive the length and 3 hours to drive the width. Victoria is our provincial capital so gets the focus.
