The Harbour Ferries offer tours off the normal harbor routes. We took the Gorge tour - a 55 minute tour up one of the rivers. We were the only ones on the ferry, and it was quite fun! Our captain relayed some historical information along the way!
Most travellers would never catch a glimpse of the view from moss rock in Fairfield... it's a difficult place to find, but once you're there, you are guaranteed a great view of the city and shoreline! good for both sunset and sunrise, it's free to visit and well hidden between several houses on the back streets of fairfield. Basically, you head up Fairfield Street away from town (about 20 minutes walking distance), and look for the sign that takes you to moss rock on your right... if you arrive at Thrifty's food, you know you've gone to far... ask around for directions and good luck! When you find the rock, just climb to the top and soak in the view.
An interesting place to see is the Maritime Museum of British Columbia. A small museum, but interesting for lovers of the Sea.
Interesante también para españoles: incluye cartas navales, cuadros ... de las exploraciones españolas en la zona, en el siglo XVIII, y unas réplicas (a escala, claro) de las corbetas de la expedición Malaspina, cedidas por el rey Juan Carlos, cuando visitó la ciudad (no recuerdo qué año).
The harbour is an enjoyable place to watch life go by; boats, planes, and people. The Westbay Walkway which begins at the Johnson Street Bridge (the big blue bridge), follows along the harbour and gives you that chance. It measures 2.725 km, and you can follow your progress with the signs posted along the route.
Visit a 'Haunted House'. You can go by yourself to Helmcken house during the day (it is right beside the Royal BC museum) or you can take a guided walking tour in the evening. Tours run throughout the summer until Halloween. Go to Helmcken house or the visitor info center for more details.
I spotted this rather spooky house in West Victoria, on my way back from the English Inn & Resort. Can you imagine what it looks like on Halloween?!!
Visit what most call the Parliment Building. In fact, you can participate in a free tour and learn more about the history of Victoria!
