Cool little place

Worth a quick little visit but not as big as I would have thought for a seaside city. Harbour seals are quite cute and a couple food choices

Beautiful location. Great in the spring and summer months. Renting a room in a boathouse b&b is a great experience you shouldn't pass up! It's a scenic 15 minute walk into downtown. Great part of Victoria everyone should experience.

Great fish and chips especially the chops and coleslaw at Barb's Fish & Chips. Fun to watch the seals and otters.

We did go during off season so I'm not sure if there is more to do during the summer; we walked around and looked at the boat houses, we looked in the couple of little shops that were there, kinda pricy, we did get to see the seals come up to the dock for a feeding. Unfortunately it was windy,... More

Stopped here on our way to the city Center, food is great around here. In addition, just take the boat taxi to wherever you want to go. Really conveniently located and a must see.

We went here on a trip, and it was very relaxing here. The locals were very friendly and we had plenty to see here. The quaint boat houses are also a must see here! I've also seen seals pass by this area so that's also something to look out for. Just a great place to visit when your in Victoria.

In the heart of Victoria and within walking distance of the Parliement, Ficherman´s Wharf if a fun place for a short stop. The floating houses are interesting but I felt like a tourit intruding. There is reputed Fish and Chip place there and otehr goodies. Be aware that, comes noon, the place gets packed rapidly. Especially when cruiser ships are... More

Came down here a couple times during our trip. Left for a whale watching trip and a kayak trip from here. You can feed some really fat seals, have ice cream or buy some fresh seafood. On the weekend there was live music and a great family friendly energy. With all the boats and sea planes coming and going there... More
