  • 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!
