Tour description provided by Viator

Combine four great experiences for the ultimate Vancouver day trip! Take a whale-watching cruise, sightsee around Victoria at your own pace, explore the beautiful Butchart Gardens, and top it off with a relaxing sunset cruise back to Vancouver. This is the most scenic and convenient way to explore Victoria in one day from downtown Vancouver.
Check in for your full-day tour in the morning at Vancouver’s Westin Bayshore Hotel. You’ll then be taken to the launching spot for your whale-watching cruise.Board a 60-foot (18-meter) boat and journey along a beautiful route across the Georgia Strait and through the Gulf Islands. Spot marine mammals such as seals, killer whales and humpback whales, all while enjoying commentary about the region’s wildlife from your naturalist guide. Your boat will dock in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, where you’ll then be given free time to explore the city of Victoria independently. When you’re ready, hop on the shuttle bus and head to the world-famous Butchart Gardens. (Shuttle busses depart from downtown Victoria periodically throughout the afternoon.)Enjoy a couple of hours to leisurely stroll through the stunning floral displays. This National Historic Site of Canada offers endless amazing photo opportunities. In the evening, re-board the boat at the garden’s private dock for a 2-hour sunset cruise back to Vancouver. Sit back, relax and soak in views of the sunset before arriving at Coal Harbour to conclude your full-day tour.
