ITINERARY

This is a fun full-day tour for families with younger kids and can be adjusted for your big kids too. You’ll love the easy paced day and fun places to explore and capture memories for your photo album.

We will begin the tour at the Inner Harbour – the hub of the city and then board a Water taxi and sail to Fisherman’s Wharf for a stroll around the gem-coloured float homes – perhaps some awesome fish and Chips? or ice cream!

Then we’ll head to Beacon Hill Park to climb a tree, visit the sleeping giant, play with goats and feed roaming peacocks + see the tallest Totem pole in the world and stop to see Thunderbird Park where you can close up to a collection of totem poles representing many First Nations along the Coast.

We’ll take the scenic Ocean drive before stopping at Government house to wander through some of the gardens and possibly encounter some resident deer?
Then it will be off to see a castle with a notorious family scandal that rocked the country during the Victorian era.You can visit the interior if you would like but the admission is not included in your tour price and will take about 45 minutes which we can adjust the tour time or add on 1 extra hour ($105). This you can decide on your tour day when we get there.
And a grand finale for Beach Time!! To play in the sand & have a picnic lunch (Park and bathroom facilities are located at the Beach)
Alternative to have a light lunch at the Marina Cafe. (Lunch is included in your tour price).

This is usually a full day for little ones and parents, I assure you they will sleep like lambs.
