The waters surrounding Victoria make for excellent whale watching and wildlife viewing. In 2010, Travel + Leisure magazine named Vancouver Island one of "North America’s Best Whale Watching Spots."

Orcas (killer whales) are most frequently sighted, but humpback, minke and grey whales can also be seen, along with harbour seals, Steller and California sea lions, bald eagles, and harbour and Dall’s porpoises.

Many Victoria whale-watching tours leave right from downtown, so it's easy to combine an afternoon of whale watching with shopping or golfing. Nearby Sidney and Sooke are also popular whale-watching spots, and some tours travel to the Victoria area from Vancouver.
