We opted to not do an excursion and go out in our own. We hopped on the BC transit ($5 all day pass) took the number 2 line over to Oak Bay. It’s about a 25 min ride through town. Oak Bay is a nice little village with shops and eateries. Very friendly. We walked about 10 min to Oak Bay Marina. I highly recommend this especially if you have children. For $3 you get a bag of fish to feed the local seals. There was about 6 of them just waiting. They will do tricks like spin for you and splash you. One kept hitting his belly. This was by far our favorite stop on the cruise!
Victoria is just spectacular. We took an exciting to the butterfly garden (best one we've ever been to including different countries) and then to the unparalleled Butchart Gardens which must be the most beautiful gardens this side of heaven.

We may go back to Victoria for another vacation. It’s really pretty and has more to see than what you can pack into a few hours. We did the O’Canada Highlights bus tour. Our tour guide Jonathan was really good. We stopped at a coffee shop for a donut and hot beverage after driving through some of the more interesting neighborhoods in the area and up to a Victoria overlook with beautiful views of the city.

You have to go to the Butchart Gardens if you come here. The have the most beautiful flowers and scenery. The city is so clean with flower baskets every ten feet it seems and topiaries on major roads. The store near the port is hard to get into but the prices are less expensive than the gift shop in Butchart gardens. When you are looking for an Alaskan itinerary try to find one with Victoria.
Only complaint was the very limited amount of time there. We had a great dinner and it’s a charming place just wanted more than 4 hours.
