I have 4 days on VI in the second week of April with my wife, baby and parents. I would be greatful for some advice regarding VI at this time of year. We arrive by air into Victoria. We are trying to descide if we willl stay in the Victoria area or go to the Tofino area.
Whales in April
I understand grey whales are seen at this time of year in the Tofino area, however the seas can be quite rough. Is the 5 hour trip to Tofino worth it to try and see grey whales? In April is there other sealife that can be seen at this time of year?
Are there any tours to see Killer Whales or other sea life in April from Victoria region?
The best things in April.
We are mainly interested in seeing nature, wildlife and photographic scenery. Some ideas we have so far include
If we stay in Victoria - the Butchart Gardens, Sooke, and Qualilum Beach.
If we go to Tofino - Stop in at Chemainus and Cowiehan Bay.
Any other suggestions for this time of year.
