Victoria - Weekend vs Weekday? Tsawwassen vs Seattle? 1 vs 2 nights?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a vacation trip in mid-March, with Victoria Island being one of the desinations.

1. Is Victoria Island more fun on the weekends or weekdays?
I thought it would be better on weekdays when it's less crowded, but I've also heard that b/c it's geared towards tourists, it will be kind of dead and not as much fun during the week.

2. Should I take a ferry from Tsawwassen-Swartz or the ferry from Seattle?
I will be in both Seattle and Vancouver during my trip, so I can go from either place. If I went from Seattle, I'd have to park the car there and would be car-less in Victoria. If I go from Tsawwassen, then I would have a car and I believe that ferry is a lot cheaper. However, I've also heard that if you have a car, you have to get there very early and when all is said and done, the trip from downtown Vancouver to Victoria takes a very long time (5 hours or so?)

3. How long should I stay? I've heard 1 night is enough to see everything (assuming a morning ferry there and an afternoon ferry back). Would 2 nights be better with all the ferry waiting involved? Will I start to get bored? (I'm mostly interested in the gardens, walking around, eating - not really into shopping.)

THANKS!!
