Oh Victoria, We loved you | Our Quick Trip & Places We Visited While There

Oh Victoria, you’re beautiful! And wish that our trip had been longer. But we certainly did manage to fit a lot in our 24 hour stay. The four of us had been planning this trip for sometime now and finally the stars aligned and we made it happen. Next time making it happen a lot longer.

We squeezed this quick trip into two days because while there we got to meet some new puppies, one which will be coming home with us very soon. So it was our visiting weekend. Lucky for us we got to make it a fun family vacation to Victoria. We absolutely love Vancouver Island and take any chance to go visit. Victoria had been one location that we haven’t been to and thankful we got to absorb it all in.

I mean really, we are quite happy if the only things we do there are explore the trails and beaches. But you know us, we like to keep busy and to us experiences are way more rewarding for our family than stuff and things.

These memories our children will grow up knowing for a lifetime to come! Now, let’s get to the good stuff….

Eagle Wing Whale Watching Tours

For years Drew and I have been desperately wanting to explore the Pacific and go Whale Watching. But every time it seemed like one of our littles were way to little to go aboard. Until now. We found a really awesome, well recommended whale watching tour in Victoria that accommodates all ages. Eagle Wing Tours is the best!

It was perfect. This boat was covered just in case it rained or became too cold. The kids could easily go inside or outside to enjoy the sun and ocean breeze. From afar we got to see a family of 6 killer whales, 2 humpback whales and lots of seals swimming in their natural habitat. Videos over on Instagram

The Rootcellar & The Coffee Project

Randomly, we stumbled into this awesome grocer and coffee place. The Rootcellar and The Coffee Project. Tons of great produce, lunches and just about everything to make a really delicious meal. We ended up going twice! It was great. Grabbing coffee’s on the way out. Our family does love picking up our own stuff before dining out. Totally recommend this place!

Hotel Zed | Victoria

Gahhh, this place has been on our travel bucket list for awhile now Hotel Zed and so happy we got to spend the night here. It is absolutely the coolest retro-vibe hotel ever. The first thing that everyone loved when pulling up was all the bright colours. It was a show stopper. The pool, the waterslide and the hot tub.

Ping pong table and board games. Long boards and laundry room. Free parking & free coffee! I could go onnnn. Everyone is so chill and relaxed. So easy going. We loved the vibes and our stay here. We all slept like babies and some more than others!

Honestly, its in such a perfect location too. Right across from Mayfair Mall, not that far down from downtown Victoria. If you’re looking for a fun eccentric place to stay go here!

Fishermans’ Wharf

The coolest spot! If you do go to Eagle Wing Tours you will have to go here. It’s such a cool little hidden spot we never knew about. Loaded with tons of parking. The water taxi is located here. So many awesome seaside restaurants to eat at. Ice cream. So much!

Everything is located right on the wharf along with some really pretty colourful houseboats and sail boats. We loved the energy in this cute little spot!

Victoria Scenic Drive

This is basically it, the most beautiful scenic drive ever. It really reminds us of Nova Scotia, back home if you just drive along the coast you end up finding the most beautiful beaches and spots to tour. Thats what we did. Went beach hopping along this scenic drive. Stopping to throw rocks and explore a trail. You just follow the signs…

Parkridge Doodles

Our final stop before heading home, Parkridge Doodles. We have been connected with this sweet golden doodle breeder for sometime now and have completely fell in love with this place. The puppies, the owners, the love and quality. So good! So we decided to add a new family member…more on that coming soon…

We had the opportunity to visit and connect up close with the puppies and while there, of course take photos of puppies… so we did!

We did it all. Packed everything we could into this tiny little visit. And it was all worth it! We already have a million other places we want to visit when we go back….
