This two-hour excursion will start at the Ogden Point Cruise Terminal. On foot you’ll follow the seawall, which is lined with the well-manicured lawns and gardens of those lucky enough to live with a view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains.
You’ll step away from the bustle and continue up towards Beacon Hill Park, with views of the famous Inner Harbor. From there you’ll head back down into the heart of town where historic sights, restaurants, and shops are plentiful. The Inner Harbor is a bustling commercial core with regular seaplane departures to the surrounding islands, street performers, local crafts, and food vendors.
This is also the location of the Royal British Columbia Museum, the British Columbia Parliament Buildings, and the world-famous Fairmont Empress Hotel and its landmark ivy-covered walls. Your guide will share with you the inside stories and history of the area, and an insider’s knowledge unique to the City of Victoria. Explore the Inner Harbor either with your guide or on your own.
Choose to stay downtown to explore on your own or re-join the team as you continue your journey along the waterfront back to the ship. As you walk, keep your eyes peeled for the multi-million-dollar yachts plying the waterways of Victoria.
