September 2018 - Congratulations to the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority for Another Great Cruise Ship Season!

The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA) deserves a big congratulations for another great season. Efforts made over the past ten years have really paid off for Greater Victoria’s tourism industry.

  • 2019’s cruise ship season launched on April 11th and closed on October 14th. The GVHA reports that roughly 640,000 passengers and 260,000 crew visited Victoria on 250 ship calls. The Norwegian Bliss, the newest and biggest ship to visit Victoria in 2018, brought 1, 500 additional visitors to Victoria each Friday of the season. Research informs us that many cruise passengers are introduced to Greater Victoria for the first time on a cruise and then return for a longer land-based vacation.
  • Early Bird registration fees are available for The IMPACT Tourism & Travel Sustainability Conference until November 12th. Join peers and stakeholders in Victoria, January 20-23, 2019 for the second annual national discussion on the tourism industry’s impact on Canada’s economic, social, environmental and cultural fabric.
