Whales and Flowers, Oh My!
Prince of Whales Whale Watching is launching its Whales and Garden Tour from Victoria to the Butchart Gardens on May 30, 2008.
The 5+ hour adventure begins at Victoria's Inner Harbour, continues through the Gulf Islands for whale watching and ends at the secluded private dock of Butchart Gardens. After a leisurely stroll through the 55 acres, there's also time for dinner in The Dining Room Restaurant (service begins June 15). The trip includes admission to the gardens and shuttle by coach back to Victoria.
Prince of Whales continues its Vancouver/Victoria trips, which incorporate whale watching into the crossing. This season it has added to its popular package by including a "quick-trip" back to Vancouver from the Butchart docks, making the scenic journey to Vancouver’s Coal Harbour in just 2.5 hours.
