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

Well, if you were expecting something like what San Francisco or Monterey have to offer, you will be in for some deep disappointment. Victoria's Fisherman's Wharf is bit more modest and way more smaller. It basically is a place to eat. There are some interesting...More

Beautiful place!! Charm and character! Terrible smells "warfs" around you, but i guess that is the price to float your house in such a beautiful place! I would stop and check it out if I were you!

The Fisherman's Wharf is a great destination on foot from the inner harbour. Take the waterfront path past Laurel Point to get there. Then take a water taxi back! It's a great little outing in the heart of Victoria.

This is a classic place to visit when in Victoria. We walked the entire Wharf and enjoyed looking at the homes. One was for sale and the owner invited people to come and see inside. There are restaurants for a good snack and buskers to...More

Don't expect a huge place, but what is here is quirky and interesting and its a good place to visit by water taxi. There appeared to be fast food outlets, which we didn't try, so maybe worth exploring.

Massively overrated as a destination. There's very little there and the choice of eateries is very poor.

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.
