Things to do in VICTORIA with kids

Wildlife, sunshine, ocean, culture…the quintessentially British feeling capital of British Columbia, Victoria, is a beautiful place to visit with kids - especially kids who love the ocean!

Kids can explore the history of all things maritime at the Maritime Museum of BC, before heading out past the coastline to explore that little bit further! Why not take to the skies with Harbour Air Seaplanes? Or head out onto the waters to try and spot those beautiful creatures of the ocean - whales! Companies like Prince of Whales do just the job!

From above the water to below, Pacific Undersea Gardens lets kids go deep into Victoria’s Inner Habor and explore the beauty that can be found under the ocean. Amazing!

Of course, Victoria is not all ocean fun. There are sweet animals waiting to be visited at Beacons Hill Childrens Farm, or get up among the birds with WildPlay - fancy being suspended 60ft off the ground? We know you do!

A charming, cheerful and very family-friendly city, Victoria has so many things do to with kids you won’t want to leave!
