What you can expect
Uncover the Victorian charm of British Columbia's capital on this exciting and convenient day trip from Vancouver to Victoria. Hop on a helicopter for a birds-eye view of the stunning Pacific Northwest, enjoy time to explore Victoria on your own, and return to Vancouver on a seaplane—all before dinnertime.
Your tour begins with a soaring helicopter flight from city centre Vancouver. Take in the glistening expanse of the Strait of Georgia for just about 30 minutes before touching down in Victoria. Once you land on the southern end of Vancouver Island, the next few hours are yours to do with as you please. On this customisable tour, you can spend as much or as little time exploring the various parts of Victoria as you want, and can even adjust your flight schedule to meet your needs.
Set off into the enchanting city, which is known for its abundant parkland, colonial architecture, and delightful attractions like carousels and old-timey harbour boats. Spend some time strolling through the romantic Butchart Gardens, one of the top attractions in all of BC. During the summer, the gardens burst at the seams with the dramatic colours of its thousands of flowers, later turning into a dazzling display of red, russet, and maple as summer transitions into fall.
Continue your afternoon with a trip to see Craigdarroch Castle, scope out the awe-inspiring Gothic architecture of the Christ Church Cathedral, or try to spot an otter or seal during a ride on the Victoria Harbour Ferry. Grab a bite to eat at one of the many waterfront restaurants before catching a seaplane back to Vancouver.
