Trip Planner: Canada / British Columbia / Vancouver Island / Victoria Capital Regional District / Victoria / Fisherman's Wharf
Take a leisurely stroll around the colorful wooden buildings and boardwalks of Fisherman's Wharf, where you can peruse a host of seafood kiosks and freshly caught fish for sale. Buy some fish to feed to the resident seals and otters, or consider taking a whale-watching excursion from the wharf. Keep your eyes peeled for birds flying about the wharf, with bald eagles occasionally spotted in the area. It's worth arriving with an empty stomach, as the wharf offers a lot of tasty dishes to try.

Unexpected and interesting. A short distance from the downtown Inner Harbour and there's a walkway along the water (about 25 minutes walk). Transit bus #2 will also take you there. Super busy in high season, nice relaxing in off-season with only a couple eating places open. Still, fresh fish, fresh air, great harbour traffic views - taxiing seaplane, water taxis, ferry traffic - and wonderfully bright and constructed floating homes. Highly recommend!
Cute floating houses and business. A nice walk and view into the harbour. The roads leading to and out of the wharf is also a relaxing walk. We walked from the wharf to Breakwater lighthouse, totally doable with a nice view!
