Victoria: A Merry Time

The Royal Ballet is world-renowned, yet the Victoria Harbour Ferry Water Ballet is universal. Starting in 1990, after the skippers noticed how agile the boats were, the charming choreography was inspired by the RCMP Musical Ride. Watch as the little vessels whirl and twirl on the sea. Find the dates here:

Continue the marine theme by visiting the Maritime Museum of British Columbia. Take a walking tour of the Inner Harbour or browse the current exhibit about the history of queer and trans communities in BC’s maritime history. Visit Tradewinds Boater Exchange, formerly known as the All-Things Marine Thrift Store, for a well-kept secret.

Victoria and British Columbia have a rich history with the sea, so make time to learn about what makes it so essential to the people here.
