Seattle/Victoria/Vancouver - May/June 14

Jump to last reply

I'm in the early planning stages of a trip to Seattle/Victoria and Vancouver. No flights booked as yet - so plenty of flexibility to allow for good ideas..
Dates are also flexible, but I'm looking at leaving New Zealand on Friday 30th or Saturday 31 May to fly to Seattle (which would be arriving Friday or Saturday evening). I planned to stay in Seattle until at least June 5th (with friends that will be working during the week), and then travel to Victoria and then Vancouver - leaving on the 12th of June.
Here's where I get a bit unsure of what to do...
My wishlist is bears, kayaking (but not hardcore - tourist level), day trips to scenic places and shopping.
I'm not interested in hiring a car.
I have some interest in museums and art galleries (only the good ones :) ).
I am not fixed on whether I fly into Seattle and out of Vancouver or vice versa. My only prerequisite is that I'm in Seattle for 4th June (my birthday :) ).
I do know about rain...and I know that I won't melt if I get wet...!

So, do you have any helpful advise on the following:

How long would you spend in Victoria versus Vancouver?
Any recommendations for kayaking day or overnight trips?
Any recommendations on a day trip that I may see bears in the wild (from a distance!)?
Any logistical issues that I may not have considered with flying into Seattle and out of Vancouver (or vice versa).
Any must sees in any of these places? Or day trips worth considering?
