Unique attraction for tourists especially on a nice day. It is a little pricy for the full tour, but it is unique and doesnt harass or endanger our already threatened orca whales.

A great way to see the city from the water and visit a few of the must see sights. You can travel from one side of the harbour to the other and the cost is cheap.

So neat to be on the water in the busy harbour. I used it several times last summer to get from Old town to Fisherman's Wharf.

It had started to rain lightly so we took it from the main landing at the downtown location to one about a block from our resort.

These little "pickle boats" regularly visit different points around Victoria. The price is $6. Kids love them!

I'm local but when I have friends visiting, I love to take them on the little harbor ferry to Spinnakers for lunch. Lovely views of the harbor and many times see seals. Great photo opportunities of our lovely Parliment Buildings and Fairmont Empress Hotel. You...More
