A gem on Vancouver Island, the Esquimalt Lagoon has a rich geological history that has left behind a unique saltwater lagoon, abundant with wildlife and fauna. One can explore miles of beachfront, marked by views of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains and the city of Victoria beyond. You can spot gulls hunting for shellfish, bald eagles resting on treetops, or snowgeese stopping on their way to points beyond. Perched above the lagoon are ancient Douglas firs, some of which are hundreds of years old.
