Clipper Vacations invited us to visit Victoria, BC! We live in Seattle and frequently drive up to Vancouver but have yet to visit Victoria, so we were excited for the opportunity! From Pier 69 in Seattle, we boarded the Clipper at 8am on Saturday and docked at Victoria in 2.5 hours.
After arriving in Victoria at 10:30am, we boarded the tour bus to The Butchart Gardens, which is a package you can book on Clipper Vacations (along with afternoon tea at the Fairmont Empress).
The Butchart Gardens:
Where to Stay:
Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Hotel Resort & Spa in a beautiful waterfront room. The hotel is conveniently located near the pier and downtown, so we were able to walk everywhere.
Exploring Downtown Victoria, BC:
Jam Cafe for brunch and Hey Happy for coffee, and then just strolling around the boutiques in the neighborhood. Wander over to the historic Chinatown, and visit the famously narrow Fan Tan Alley and have afternoon tea at the darling Venus Sophia.
Departing Victoria, BC:
