Day Trip to:

Bellingham Cruise Terminal located in the historic "Fairhaven District". Victoria

Victoria, Canada is an easy 3 hour ferry ride away and makes an excellent one day outing or an overnight excursion. You can catch the passenger ferry from the Bellingham Cruise Terminal located in the historic "Fairhaven District". If you are lucky your captain may stop along the way to allow passengers to photograph and watch whales. The San Juan Islands are home to three pods (families) of Orca whales. All three pods count for roughly 90 whales. There is also plenty of opportunity to site porpoises, seals, eagles, seabirds.... don't forget your camera and binoculars.

Your cruise wraps up in the inner harbour of Victoria, one of the most scenic cities in Canada known for its magnificent gardens, hence its nick-name "The City of Gardens". The city got its official "The City of Gardens"name from Queen Victoria, who was Queen of England from 1819 to 1901. The Ferry dock is within walking distance of the Fairmont Empress hotel, famous for its afternoon high tea. It is in front to the Empress where you may catch one of the many 1 1/2 hour Double Decker city tours or the longer tour to the famous Buchart Gardens. The inner harbour can be populated with 3500 recreational vessels each summer and you are sure to see some of the many float planes that bring people into Victoria by air.

During the summer months Victoria has many multicultural festivals, shows and music. It won't be hard to find yourself enjoying Tall Ships in the harbour, a JazzFest event or a quirkie production from the annual Fringe Theatre Festival. Then there are the galleries and restaurants! You Buchart Gardenswill likely need a few extra days of rest and refreshment when you return to your Lummi Island home base.

But before you board the ferry once again for your return home be sure to take a stroll along Government Street, named after the fact that the province of British Columbia has its Parliament buildings in Victoria. Government Street houses many boutiques and shops where you will easily find that perfect one-of-a-kind item you've been wanting for ages.

Directly in front of the Empress Hotel is the Lower Causeway along the waterfront where you will see street musicians, food vendors and local artists and artisans. Its an ideal place to sit and watch the world.
