Great place to wander about and see houseboats and taste good fresh fish. But expect long waits and it is pretty pricey. Buskers and ferry's help keep you entertained though and lots of sea lions hang out there

What a fascinating place this is. We walked along looking at al the floating homes, envying these people the lifestyle. There was a huge variety of food places and plenty to choose from. We spent most of the day just wandering

I love the ocean and all things 'ships' so a visit to the Fisherman's Wharf in Victoria was high on my list of places to visit. The shop keepers were friendly and the merchandise nicely presented, but there were too few shops to explore. I...More

We walked to Fisherman's Wharf in the evening by the waterside (via Laurel Point). Nice paved walk, so much quieter than the streetside. And then you arrive at the floating homes, some painted very colourful. We witnessed an awsome sunset. Plan not to arrive at...More

Very small pier with not too many places to eat or relax. Clean, but not too appealing to have a meal there. We were there mainly to board the boat to go whale watching. It is also a water taxi stop, so it does have...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)
