This location not only is pretty and housing beautiful old buildings, you can partake in many activities, like harbour tours, whale watching trips. The museum is steps away, as is the famous Empress hotel. Places to eat are all around and you can people watch all day long.

We had the great fortune to watch from our hotel balcony sea planes take off and land. For Texans, that's a pretty big deal! We adored the little water taxis and were able to watch the water ballet celebrating their 25 years of service. The Inner Harbour area is beautiful, and it seemed like something was always going on.

Lovely buildings and views in this area, it seems to be the main hub for tourists. Nice to stroll around and admire the buildings.

A cool place to walk and look at all of the local natives art work. They are willing to negotiate and will give you a fair price unlike all of the stores on government.

The Inner Harbor is always such a pleasing experience... We call it the "Busy Harbor" because so much is going on all the time. This weekend they had a sail boat race going on... there is always the seaplanes, ferries and water taxis. We walked around the harbor and had lunch over looking the harbor at the Delta hotel which... More

A great place for a leisurely stroll on a summer's evening. Always some activity going on and great people watching. If you go too far, you can always take the harbour taxi back.

Artisans and craftsmen are set-up on the harbour promenade. with a special section for the local First Nation carvers and artists. Food stalls and wagons are there to serve you the usual as... More
