Salmon were spawning, bummed not to see bears.... glacier was pretty.
We grew up with a crabbing boat and we thought we were going whale-watching, which was ALL my fault, so it was a little bummed, but we saw bald eagles and seals and of course, dungeness crabs. The crab feast was delicous... but this was EIGHT AM. We had to have a beer and try to imagine it was dinnertime. Crab was as good as any I've had anywhere, and like I said, I grew up pulled up crabpots and eating it on the beach with a crab pot, so I've had a lot of excellent crab. They did a great job.
OH MY GOD. TOO LONG!!! I get it, it's a marvel, but do yourself a favor and take it ONE WAY, and then kayak and take a bus home. It was boring. Just being honest. This was from the point of view of a train geek. Save yourself. Was almost four hours.
Three hours is just a dumb amount of time to be in Victoria. It is such a fabulous place, it just wasn't enough time to do anything really. But I love Victoria, and the rating is only about the lack of time there.
