One of most relaxing activity Victoria is famous for is salt water fishing. Victoria's fair weather starts in March, but fishing is a sport that can be enjoyed all year around.
Surrounding the Great Victoria area are some of the best kayaking locations in the world.
Victoria's weather, especially after March, is mild and sunny; the perfect conditions for sailing! Sailing in Victoria is enhanced by the picturesque scenery, one that will take your breath away.
British Columbia is known for its resident whales which are more than 300 in number broken into two groups: the South team and North team. Going whale watching from the Inner Harbour in downtown, you will most likely see the South team. There are more than 100 whales in this pod which consists of the killer whale, Humpback whale, Gray whale, Fin whale, and Mink whale.
Why travel all the way north to see Alaska brown bears when you can see them right on Vancouver Island?
