Instead of a long drive, add a little excitement in your travel between Vancouver and Victoria. Opt instead for this round-trip seaplane flight between the two picturesque cities.
Make your way to the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre, part of Coal Harbour, and check in 30 minutes before your flight departure time. After a safety briefing, take to the skies for a 35-minute flight.
Fly out over the Georgia Strait and peer out below to see the villages and anchorages of the beautiful Gulf Islands. Look out for Mount Baker in the distance, Salt Spring Island and the world-famous Butchart Gardens.
Touch down in the Inner Harbour, located in central downtown Victoria, and take ground transportation to the Butchart Gardens (admission included). In Victoria, shopping, the Royal BC Museum, and several other attractions are just steps away — enjoy free time in the city before returning on an afternoon or evening flight back to Vancouver.
