Stroll along the waterfront and through seaside parks in the charming Inner Harbour of Victoria. Unique gift shops, museums, elegant Victorian architecture, horse-drawn carriages, street musicians, and flowers. Lots and lots of flowers.
Depending upon the ferry, it takes 55 or 90 minutes to cross. Leave Sea Cliff Gardens at 7 a.m., (with a to-go breakfast and your passport in-hand), catch the early ferry to Victoria, and then return on the evening ferry, around 6:45 p.m. in the summer, or 4:00 p.m. during the rest of the year.
