Sweet summertime is anticipated by all after a long winter. Victoria offers an abundance of water activities that are perfect for summer.

Pickle Pub Crawl

You will be intrigued when you listen to the funny jokes and tales being told while the Harbour Ferry Captains escort you to four unusual restaurants and pubs. 

All Around Town

Ride the Ferry and spend the day in Sooke. Visit Fisherman’s Wharf and the Gorge, or meet the seals with Coastal Sea Adventures.

Whale Watching

Victoria is the home of three killer whale families, harbour seals, and sea lions. You might see humpback whales which visit the area. 

Paddle Exploration

If you are into kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding then enjoy viewing local wildlife while getting a little exercise in. Bring a friend and rent a double kayak.

Take a Dip

Cool off by dipping in the natural rock pools. The water is crisp, clear, and refreshing. Victoria also offers visits to Gonzales Beach or Cadboro Bay where the water is warmed by the sun. Lastly, take a swim through a kelp forest in the Ogden Point Dive Centre and enjoy underwater landscape.

An Ocean View

How many dream of walking along the beach with no stress? Take a walk to Delta Ocean Pointe Resort, or a gentle stroll to Fisherman’s Wharf for fabulous ocean views.

Stunning sights await you at Mile 0 or drive to Mount Tolmie, Mount Douglas, or the Saanich Peninsulas for a dreamy ocean sight.

Anxious for an Adventure

Are you an adventurer? Watch as wind and kite surfers conquer the waves and boost high into the air at Clover Point.

The Swiftsure International Yacht Race takes place annually. It draws competitors from as far away as New Zealand, or you can simply enjoy a relaxing three hour tour.

Whether you are into relaxing and enjoy the view, or you are adventurous, there is something for everyone in Victoria. It will be an experience you will be sure to share with family and friends.
