About this Trip
Experience British Columbia’s premier museum on your Victoria overnight vacation and soak in Victoria’s rich culture. Chock-full of giant totem poles, huge collections of First Nations art and unique, interactive exhibits that allow you to slide back into the Ice Age or stand next to grizzlies in a massive forest, the Royal British Columbia Museum is a fun place for both the young and the young at heart to see, play and explore!
Hop on our high-speed catamaran in the morning for a scenic ride from downtown Seattle’s Pier 69 to the heart of downtown Victoria. Upon arrival, walk to the Royal British Columbia Museum and wander through fascinating galleries and unique interactive exhibits. Imagine what it is was like to walk the dockside streets in downtown Victoria or experience the flora and fauna found in the magnificent coastal rainforest. Use the rest of the evening to check out a few of the city’s gems:
Enjoy a delicious brunch at one of the many excellent restaurants scattered around the city. Spend the rest of your day exploring Victoria before returning to Seattle in the evening. Hop on a bike and peddle along the scenic Dallas Road waterfront, picnic in Beacon Hill Park, say “hello” to the harbor seals at the popular Fisherman’s Wharf, explore the stunning Craigdarroch Castle or discover a few of our other favorite activities:
