Victoria Harbour Seals

Simon Wigzell

The capital of British Columbia, Victoria has its origins as a Hudson's Bay Company Fort established by James Douglas. Since then, Victoria has become a gentle city of British tradition with 75,000 lucky residents. Double decker buses, carefully tended gardens and unhurried afternoon tea are indications of Victoria's relationship with its past. Blue waters, beautiful gardens and mild climate make Victoria an ideal location for outdoor adventures and sightseeing. Be sure to visit the world famous Butchart Gardens and to take tea at the Empress Hotel on the waterfront. The Royal British Columbia Museum has some outstanding exhibits depicting the human and natural history of British Columbia. Victoria is the land of gardens, tea and tranquility. Don't forget to bring home some Cuban cigars!!

Along Victoria's waterfront you can enjoy the buskers, afernoon tea (4:00 PM) at The Empress Hotel, tulips and other flowers in front the provincial government building or even a tour of the government building. From the harbour you can take a boat trip to do whale watching for Orca Whales.
