Things to Do in Victoria, BC

Whale watching trips are available along with kayaking, sailing and fishing trips. Visitors can even go diving from Sidney-by-the-Sea just north of Victoria holiday rentals.

Inland hikers can explore the Cowichan Valley and Strathcona Provincial Park a little further away.
