Victoria, British Columbia

Oct 02, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird

We awoke to a breezy morning as we made our way west across the United States - Canada border, in the middle of Haro Strait. Cruising around the southern tip of Vancouver Island, we crept into the Inner Harbour of Victoria while finishing breakfast and disembarked shortly after, clearing customs on the way to the day’s activities.

Some guests chose to visit Victoria’s fine art galleries; others went on a garden walk or a Royal BC Museum tour. Those who wanted something more active chose a biking tour or a historic interpretive walk around town.

Instead of the recap tonight, we enjoyed a reception at The Robert Bateman Centre Gallery before returning to the ship for dinner. It was a full day of exploring this beautiful city, the provincial capital of British Columbia.
