Lin and I have lived off and on across the strait from Victoria, BC, In the Port Angeles area of the Olympic Peninsula. We only were able to go to Victoria once and didn't have a chance to explore the beaches - but we found the city very attractive and still have plans to return sometime in the future - especially with sea glass in mind.
Here's a video of looking for sea glass in Victoria itself and below are links to reports from in and around the Victoria, Vancouver Island Area.
The video doesn't identify the exact beach so a little exploring is needed.
From Port Angeles, Washington, USA, Victoria is a 40 km (25 mi) ferry ride across the Strait of San Juan de Fuca.
Good sea glass is found in the area of Victoria, as the strait is big enough to allow ocean swells in from the Pacific and open beaches on the south and west sides of Vancouver Island have some great sea glass.
The type of beach shown in the video is just like what we found in Port Townsend Glass Beach area and the finds are very similar. We would love to have some more reports if someone can find this particular beach :)
