This scenic patch of waterfront is the location of Victoria's many tourist attractions, recreational activities, restaurants and shopping. For a special treat, have afternoon tea at the grand Empress Hotel or board a ferry for a harbor tour.

Lots of things going on here- vendors with crafts, food, and street performers. Catch a water taxi or a ferry or have a drink on one of patios.

We visited BC at the tail end of our Celebrity Cruise and had a great time visiting The Inner Harbour. It was fun to watch the pickle boats and sea planes coming and going.
