Witty's always a favorite destination for a summer day. Fun and Sun! Two accesses, one stairs and the other a beautiful walk in the forest. Love it.

This park has the advantage of having a beach that is far enough away (1 Km+) from he parking lot which may serve to keep down noise. The beach has some sand instead of the coarse pebbles found in most of the area beaches. The...More

Another beautiful hike through lush forest complemented by a small waterfall and huge, picturesque Arbutus trees. There's a large parking lot, facilities and Nature Centre for kids. A short drive from Victoria combined with about a 30 minute walk to the beach, makes for a...More

We went to Witty's on the recommendations of locals as a great place to explore tide pools at low tide. Although the tide does go out a long way there were very few pools left behind and with little in them to explore. We were...More

A beautiful lagoon with nice beaches and some wildlife. We saw sea lions nearby. Great place just to sit and view the ocean or to have a nice walk. Wonderful.

If it's a little zodiac, you wear a float suit. If it is a larger vessel, you do not need a lifejacket. My cousin and aunt from Manitoba highly recommend the zodiac tour for the best experience!
