For the life of me, I cannot remember how many hours of daylight there are in Victoria in early June. Anyone know?
Thanks!

Should be 16 + hours. Sunrise is around 5 am - sunset after 9pm.

Don't forget, actual time that it's still bright enough to do things is longer because of angle of sun ( unlike near equator where it gets dark almost immediately after sunset).

I'm happy to hear this because we'll be in Victoria from 8pm to midnight (early June) and plan to go to the Butchart Gardens. This way we'll be able to see some garden with sunlight and also lit up. When I was reviewing the itinerary for our cruise, I thought it was odd we'd be there for those hours. I guess that is all they could fit in.

Unless you are on a ship's tour, you won't be able to go to the Gardens as they closed at 7:00p.m. in early June.

Superb fireworks in The Gardens' magnificent setting. Every Saturday night, July 3rd through to September 4th, these lavish shows dazzle visitors with their unique blend of spectacle and music. Bring warm clothing and, if desired, a cover to sit on the ground.

I'll be taking the ship tour for Butchart Gardens. I've been there for the fireworks and they are AWESOME!!! The best I've ever seen. If anyone has a chance to visit on one of those Saturday evenings, they're not to be missed.
