Help with Victoria get away

Jump to last reply

My DH and I are planning a getaway now that our precious 3 little ones are old enough for us to be gone more than 1 or 2 nights.
We are planning on flying into Seattle and taking a ferry or flying over to Victoria, stay at a B&B in Victoria for 4 nights, then back to Seattle for a tiny bit of exploring and spend the night before flying home.
With our time being limited we don't think we'll be able to do Tofino or other areas of the island but we've never been to Victoria and are excited to explore it.
Do you recommend a ferry or plane from Seattle to Victoria?
Because of timing with work we can either go the second week of June or the second week of July. What do you recommend?
We really want to go whale watching! What time of the day is best? What company is best?
We want to see the B Gardens and the Museum. Can that be done in one combined day?
We would love to go hiking, are there any good trails around Victoria? We don't plan to rent a car so we can't drive a ways to get to a good hike.
Any hole-in-the-wall great restaurants?
Any really fun, great experience or awesome adventure type thing to do? We are fairly active and pretty adventurous.
Also, the one thing we have to do in Seattle? Fish market? The one place we have to eat?
TIA!
