Welcome to Victoria Hippo Tours, the tour with a SPLASH!

Hippo Tours are unique tours that take you around the city, traveling both on land and water. We have specially designed amphibious vehicles that carry 40 passengers and function as both bus and boat. During your continuous 90 minute trip onboard the Hippo, you will see many of Victoria’s best attractions, while also getting a glimpse of local life. You will enjoy a relaxing tour around the city before splashing into the Pacific Ocean for the second half of your journey. Join us on one of our three buses, Harry, Happy, and Henrietta. With our knowledgeable staff and tour guides, you will experience a trip like never before on the Bus That floats!

Some of our many tour highlights include:

The Fairmont Empress Hotel, Bastion Square, Royal BC Museum, BC Parliament Buildings, Beacon Hill Park, Government Street, Chinatown, and Victoria’s Inner Harbour.

Tours depart from 470 Belleville Street every day between 11:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., from May 1 to Sept 30, 2014. The 4:00 P.M. and 5:00 P.M. tours require a minimum of 4 passengers in order to depart. Not all departure times may be available due to low tide, private events or other conditions.
