This is the go to place for a nice casual stroll along the waters edge or if you like to drive go for it! Love it on a windy day as long as the rain stays away!

The one and one half hour ferry ride from Vancouver to Victoria was scenic and relaxing. We rented a car, but you can walk on and enjoy the ride.

A day trip to Victoria is always wonderful to end with a drive along the coast. Ensure you add it to your trip back to the ferry!

You will see both the Sea and the areas where people live. The living areas varies. A long but nice drive where you can join or stop whenever you want.

Pick up a map in the tourist office and follow this route around the bay, it offers some great views of both the ocean and some lovely properties. Easy to follow and worth it.

After a conference in Seattle, my daughter and I have one day to possibly take the ferry to Victoria. What should we plan to do in that limited amount of time? Are there bus tours we can access?
