Definitely take a walk in this area to see the iconic government building and beautiful harbor. This is a must do while in Victoria.

You could spend the whole day here just strolling around. There's plenty of life around the pier, such as boats coming in, seaplanes, tour buses, buskers, painters and food outlets. Enjoy the beauty of the B.C. legislative building and the Empress hotel, and don't forget...More

A nice area with some coffees shops, street performers and local Artisans selling their work. The views of the harbour are nice. You can sit down and enjoy the boats in the harbour.

Victoria has so many great attractions it is sometimes difficult to know where one ends and the next begins. This appears to be the waterfront area up Wharf Street from the tourist bureau. Interesting view across the harbour.

Brian V's answer is complete and accurate. There are other options, such as Helijet, if you are in a hurry. But, check at the Visitor Centre, very close to Victoria pier, ferry schedules.
