If you've never flown between Vancouver and Victoria, BC, it's worth the outrageous airfare just to skim the treetops and wave at the ferries chugging below you on what has to be one of the most scenic flights in the world. Twenty minutes of bliss. You get a candy from the flight attendant and then it's time to land.
