If you arrive too late, you may drive to Esquimalt Lagoon. From there you will have a good view towards Fisgard, but you may need a telephoto lens for a good shot.

Wheather/Climate
Victoria has mild winters and receives the lowest annual rainfall on the west coast. Although Winters are mild, you can expect a certain amount of rain and fog. Summer temperature could reach up to 30°C, and it's the driest season. Because of the sub-Mediterranean climate, Victoria is sometimes named "The Garden City". You could find even rare plants in Canada like palms and eucalyptus. In general, the city enjoys plenty of sunshine all year around.
