We set out from Victoria’s harbour area and went on a three-hour tour of the waters surrounding the city. We were lucky enough to spot several pods of orcas and humpback whales, and it was truly amazing to see these incredible creatures up close.
After the whale watching tour, I headed to the Butchart Gardens, which is a must-visit destination in Victoria.
