Great photos!

One of my best friends is in Victoria teaching medieval literature at the university there and he's loving the city (it's certianly quite different from Australia).

hopefully I'll be visiting him soon enough. Victoria looks like a great place to see.

Awesome pics, Mateus, why don't you post them in the Brazilian forum?
This city is very beautiful and charming, just as all Canadian cities.

Sure, I will post there. I'm just gathering information about Canada in order to make my threads in Brazilian forums more informative. Besides, you've created plenty of nice threads about Canada there, Brazilians can wait a little longer hehe.

I've not been in Victoria in many years, so it was nice to see these photos! Thanks!

Those are some really great shots of Victoria. Well done and I hope you enjoyed your time there. As for the time it takes to travel from Vancouver too Victoria the quickest way is harbour too harbour sea plane which takes about 20 minutes or so. If you are to travel by BC ferries. It leaves Tsawwassen in Delta a suburb of greater Vancouver to Swartz bay near Sydney in Greater Victoria the ferry crossing is about 1 hour 35 minutes or so plus your travel too the downtown areas.

The van which took me there left Canada Place in downtown Vancouver at 7am, we boarded BC Ferries by 8. I was in Victoria by 10:30am. About 3 and a half hours between downtown areas. They had breakfast and other meals for us aboard the ferries and the scenery is breathtaking, so it was really worth spending such a long time there. Of course, if you want to travel quickly, you should go by plane, as Nanaimo Bars told.

Thanks for the info; I think I’d properly take the Ferry as it sounds less expensive than flying and more interesting.
