New Victoria for New Media with Coast Hotels

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

This weekend John and I are on a new media press trip courtesy of Coast Hotels. Along with Ianiv & Arieanna, Duane, Anny, Karen, Lorraine, April, and guests we’re experiencing some of the best summer treats and events Victoria has to offer.

We started out early this morning aboard the Spirit of British Columbia as we enjoyed the Pacific Buffet brunch offered up by BC Ferries. It’s a nice alternative to the cafeteria and has an ideal location right at the front or back of the boat. The brunch is $19 for all you can eat throughout the 95-minute crossing.

We went for a photowalk along the deck of the boat before disembarking at Swartz Bay and piling into a mini bus to head over to Sea Cider (for which I’ll have a dedicated post later on).

We then checked into the Coast Victoria Harbourside & Marina where we’ll stay for the rest of the weekend and enjoy the 15th Annual Wine & Oyster Fest tonight.

I’ll have a separate post up about each of our adventures this weekend (with photos), which should prove to be a really fun getaway for the entire group.

    Heyyyy you’re in my hood. You’re very close to the Blue Crab, try it out. I’m sure they’re filling you with the standard touristy stuff, but if you want to know where the cool kids hang, drop me an email.

    Looks like you guys all had a lot of fun. I had to decline the invitation as we would have been in Tofino and on our way to Hornby (where I am typing this now).

    Hopefully another event like this comes up so we can join! I need to get out with all you YVR bloggers more often I think.
