Enjoy A Day on the Water & an Afternoon in the Gardens
By taking the Seattle Victoria ferry you can sit back and enjoy the scenic Salish Sea before landing on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in Victoria, the capitol of British Columbia.
One of the most popular things to do when in Victoria is to visit Butchart Gardens.
Started by Jennie Butchart, the Gardens were once a cement plant but now comprise over 50 acres of the most spectacular plantings: trees, shrubs and flowers in the most remarkable setting will contribute to a full and happy day-long mini vacation.
While its impossible to see all of the Jeannie Butcharts' gardens on one trip, you can see enough to chat about on your sail back to Seattle, and to entice you to return to the Island.
Reservations are a must on the Seattle Victoria ferry and the best fares can be made online by going to www.ferrytravel.com or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
