Owner description: 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.

The inner Harbour is a special place to visit on any sunny day. Try sitting on the patio at Milestones on the west side of the harbour looking across the marina at the BC Legislature and the Empress Hotel. Or take the water taxi on its full circle tour. Stop off at Fisherman's Wharf for fish and chips or an ice cream. Or have tea at the Empress Hotel (Far from cheap but very special.) Or stop by the Royal BC Museum. Or have breakfast overlooking the harbour at the Delta Hotel. Or take a whale watching tour and then return to the patio at Milestones again!
If the sun is shining, the harbour will never disappoint.

The inner Harbor is bustling with activity. Water taxis can shuttle you to the main visitor locations. Well maintained with walkways crowded with artists and craft booths. Make sure to stroll the wharf and grab some lunch.

We love arriving at the inner harbor by ferry. The views of the city are spectacular--the Empress, the Parliament building, etc. and it's fun to watch the sea planes taking off and landing. When leaving on the ferry the water taxis do a drill team routine. Great fun!
