A great place to start, or spend a rainy day. Its child-focused Natural History Gallery displays and details the wildlife of local coastal forests, seashores, and the Fraser River Delta.

For the real thing, families with kids aged 7 and up can go out to spot orcas, humpback, minke, and gray whales in their natural habitat on a whale-watching tour, which departs from Wharf Street in downtown Victoria.
3. Victoria Harbour Ferry
For another aquatic-based experience, riding the Victoria Harbour Ferry is a fun trip for all ages to over a dozen locations around the harbour, including the port area, the BC Parliament Buildings, and seaplane landing sites.
4. Fisherman's Wharf
If you're feeling hungry, fuel up on authentic fish and chips at Fisherman's Wharf, a quirky community of floating homes. If you're lucky, you might see the famous Harbour Ferry Ballet, when these small hardworking vessels perform a choreographed routine on the water set to music!
