6 adults and one 8yr old, saw tons of whales on the way down and loved the seaplane back. Fun time in Victoria, we had a yummy brunch at Jam and then went to Pedaler to rent bikes and do the scavenger hunt. Next time I’d grab a faster bite to eat to have more time on the bikes but either way it was an awesome day! Thanks to Mike for keeping in touch all day and making sure logistics went smoothly.

Dear Beth, So sorry for replying you this late as we couldn't see guest reviews for a while by the unknown problem. Thank you very much for sharing your experience. It's great to hear that you had a great time in Victoria. Hope your memories of the trip make you happy and smile sometimes! We can't buy good memories by money! Hope to see you in Vancouver again! Thank you!
