Vancouver Island activities agenda.

Jump to last reply

Have finally had a chance to discuss with DH some activities we would like to do on Vancouver Island. We arrive on the ferry about 11:30am ish and leave the next day on the float-plane at 6:00pm ish.
I am wondering if we will have the time to visit these places in the time we have without a car to scoot between the venues.

~ Butchart Gardens
~ Victoria Butterfly Gardens
~ Royal BC Museum
~ CraigDarroch Castle
~ Fort Rodd Hill etc and lighthouse
~ Esquimalt Lagoon - (birdwatching)
~ Swan Lake - (birdwatching)

I was rather surprised to see that most of these places don't open until 10:00am or later. That could make it difficult to accomplish all. What time do the shops open, please?

Thanks.
Dot
