This unique marine destination offers food kiosks, unique shops and eco-tour adventures in the heart of the working harbour. Wander down the docks with your lunch, buy seafood fresh off the boat, see moored pleasure vessels and float homes, and watch as fishing vessels unload their wares.

Came here during the winter and most of the floating stores were closed. Busier in the summer but still a great visit. Just having to stroll and check the floating village is great enough for a visit! Will always come back and see this place whenever I visit Victoria.

Fisherman's Wharf is something that you just have to see - it was close to our hotel so we went there time and again - good food - good fun.

Fishermans Wharf is one of the top attractions in Victoria. You can walk along the pathway from the Fairmont area around the bay to the wharf. The walk is about 20 minutes. Fishermans Wharf is pretty much a floating Village of restaurants, snack style food stalls and some of the most colourful and cute floating houses i have ever seen.... More

Whenever we're entertaining first time visitors to Victoria we make a stop at Fisherman's wharf. It fits in nicely as an ending destination after a walk along the harbour. There are several food options, it is fun to see the floating homes, and the seals are always a hit. Fun for all ages and is a great option on a... More

We came here on the weekend to see Sammy the seal & his buddy's and were not disappointed. The seals were at dock looking for some tasty treats which can be purchased for one of the fish mongers. We also had a couple of otters come and play, waiting for the public to feed them some treats. Not a lot... More

Take the walk here from downtown. Interesting restaurants in the summer, fewer in winter. Seals and sea otters all year round.

We did not realize that this attraction is not open in the winter (until after we paid for expensive parking!) I would also caution travelers that these are not restaurants (that I could see) but mostly food stands with some outdoor seating. I have been to other wharves and even though I expected this one to be smaller I was... More

We enjoyed a cute walk along the waterfront. We visited in the evening so not as many places were open but it was still enjoyable.

We walked from our hotel near Govt. St. That was a pretty good hike but not bad and we enjoyed it. Fisherman's wharf is fairly touristy, but it was still fun to see the seals up close.
