Arrive in Victoria and check into your centrally located gay-friendly hotel accommodation where you will stay for the next 2 nights!
Victoria, British Columbia is full of life! Victoria has the mildest climate in Canada with gardens that bloom all year. The wild beauty of the Pacific coast and adventures in the great outdoors are within city limits and ocean and mountain vistas will follow you wherever you go. Victoria's gay and lesbian community is integrated throughout the city and is not defined by a single neighbourhood, everyone will feel safe and welcomed.
Start your West Coast experience with an exhilarating Whale Watching Tour on the luxurious five star SuperCat and discover the picturesque West Coast of Canada and Vancouver Island, home to the largest population of Killer Whales (Orcinus Orca) in the world! The Five Star crew is waiting to introduce you to these magnificent mammals and share with you the myriad of other natural wonders abundant in this pristine marine environment.
Tonight think about a night out on the town, and savour some West Coast delicacies in one of Victoria’s fine restaurants, ask about our Dining Options. Following dinner visit Paparazzi Nightclub, the hottest alternative and LGBT community nightclub in Victoria.
On your second day in Victoria, it’s all about tradition! We’ve planned a short but sweet horse carriage tour for you to see a glimpse of Victoria’s character buildings and an incredible view of the British Columbia Legislature, and the beautiful gardens in historic James Bay. Afterward meander through downtown as shopping is fabulous! Window shop or go on a major spree at the quaint shops, local markets, antique stores or shops of local artisans, don’t forget to visit Government Street to find the perfect gift or souvenir or handmade chocolate at Purdy’s. If you’d like a longer horse carriage tour ask about upgrading to our Deluxe Tour!
Finish the afternoon off with one of Victoria’s most famous traditions – High Tea at Fairmont’s Empress Hotel, steeped in tradition since 1908. A time honoured tradition for over a century, the world renowned tea lobby of The Fairmont Empress has served England’s most beloved ritual and Victoria's grandest tradition of Afternoon Tea to famed royalty, celebrities and dignitaries alike. Surrounded by rich chintz fabrics, antiqued tapestries and rugs, elegant wing back chairs, vintage furnishings and hand-carved tables, the picturesque backdrop of the Inner Harbour provides the quintessential Victoria experience to all who grace Afternoon Tea.
