Join today's optional guided tour of Vancouver and discover why it is frequently voted the best place in the world to live. Highlights of the day will include restored Gastown, hectic, colourful Chinatown, and the Burrard Inlet coastal fjord. You'll also cross into the leafy suburbs of North Van to brave the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge, which stretches 450 ft across Capilano River.

 

 

Day Eight: Take the ferry to Vancouver Island

Today, we travel to the port to catch a 90-minute ferry ride to Vancouver Island, which cruises through the scenic Georgia Strait. We'll then continue to Victoria, the charming, colonial provincial capital.

 

 

Day Nine: Explore Victoria and join an optional whale watching cruise

Spend today exploring this unashamedly British city. Visit attractive Inner harbour, the vast Parliament Buildings and the grand Empress Hotel, or join us on an optional morning visit to colourful Butchart Gardens. In the afternoon, you'll also have the chance to head offshore, searching for signs of orca, humpback and grey whales on our optional whale-watching cruise.
