With all the trees in full leaf and the roses beginning to bloom, it feels like Victoria is ready for another tourist season. The harbour is bustling with boats and the cruise ships are back in full force. Wishing everyone a happy summer of travel!

Our Inner Harbour is truly multi-use with the Coho car ferry to Port Angeles, float plane service to Vancouver and other BC locations, the Victoria Clipper high-speed ferry to Seattle as well as the harbour ferries, yachts and sail boats, and even recreational users like these kayakers.

Around its edges one can find many attractions and restaurants.
