We took the path from the inner harbour to the wharf. Took about 25 minutes at a slow pace. Pleasant walk. The wharf itself was quaint and lively. Good eating opportunities. Ideal for lunch.

As we were coming in to the harbor via ferry from the States, it was hard not to notice the waterfront community of tiny floating homes that made up a neighborhood next to fancy high rises, and I knew immediately I had to go visit....More

We went here by the water taxies and it's a really cosy place to visit. They offer food, ice cream and drinks and you can enjoy the water view. There is a small village where you can see the floating houses.

Lots to see and do. Walk the docks and see the ships. Take a sea taxi...they are so cute. Enjoy the liking of a food truck. Paid parking. Moored float homes. Check out the Mither in laws suite. Very charming area.

A great spot to grab a snack and take in the coloured houseboats, we grabbed a couple of bikes and rode around but it is an easy walk.

Visiting Victoria from Vancouver for whale watching and walked from the harbour but got a cute water taxi back . Very crowded and prices very high for the food that was available . Worth a visit for quaint buildings but aimed totally at tourists.

This really cute harbor full of nice places to eat and featuring colorful and bohemian floating houses is the starting point of many boat tours and a must see in Victoria.

We visited Fisherman's Wharf at the end of a walk around Victoria harbour and found the famous Barb's fish and chips restaurant. Best in America? The halibut was certainly delicious and well worth recommending as the most succulent fish I've ever tasted. Another concession on...More

It's about a 5 block walk. All flat but a good 15 minutes. Might be too far for your Mom although there are many benches to stop and rest in between or you can take a Kabuki cab ( bicycle with trailer)

Some people live at Fisherman's Wharf. So it does not close. The businesses are open throughout the summer.
