    Rent a double kayak

    Take in the beauty of Victoria from its waterfront

    With your leisurely paddle strokes, you can admire the beauty of British Columbia's capital together from water level. Various tours offer kayaking trips around Victoria Harbour. They typically start off with practice paddling on land. Then, when you’re both ready, you can settle into a sturdy kayak and push off from the shore, often with an accompanying guide in a separate kayak. The best moment of a kayaking-for-two experience is at dusk, when the sun slips under the horizon and Victoria’s Empress Hotel and parliament buildings light up.
