Victoria Family Flightseeing and Whale Watching
The Fairmont Empress graces Victoria's sparkling Inner Harbour with an iconic presence. This luxury hotel in Victoria, British Columbia is located in the ideal location to explore all the natural beauty of Vancouver Island. Set out from Victoria Harbour by seaplane on a thrilling flightseeing trip with views of the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca before looping wider for a more scenic low-level tour of the Victoria waterfront and a bird's eye view of James and Sydney Islands, known for their white sand beaches and warm lagoons. From there, this spectacular tour circles around the north tip of the Saanich Peninsula with a climb over the world famous Butchart Gardens before descending back into Victoria's bustling Inner Harbour. The three-hour whale watching tours run daily from April through October. Every trip is led by a certified marine naturalist whose knowledge and passion for Vancouver Island's marine wildlife is unequaled in the industry.
