Both my friend and I were not feeling well but did not want to spend 2 days inside our hotel. Took one bus not far from the hotel which took us to Steveston. Nice little fishing village with cute shops. Did not go whale watching ($130.00) but walked around and sat in the park watching fish leap out of the... More

Spent an enjoyable few hours exploring. We watched fishing boats unloading their catch and there were nice shops to look at. The only thing that spoilt it was hoards of noisy school children on a day out!

No visit to Vancouver is complete without a visit to Steveston. Spent a very relaxing day in the sun.

I had a few hours to kill off one afternoon while in the area on business and saw the signs for Steveston Fishing Village. As huge fan of water (particularly oceans) and everything about it I figured this would be a perfect place to spend some time. I wish I had more time. My trip was a long walk along... More

I've lived in Steveston most of my life but I am still enchanted with its charm! Walking along the boardwalk you see salmon leaping in the water (where the name salmon comes from: Latin for leap). Right now there are fishing gillnetters and seiners hauling in sockeye salmon in one of the best fishing seasons in recent history. There are... More

A lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon. There is an informative cannery museum, shops and restaurants, a park, walking/biking trails, and a REAL fisherman's wharf where fisherman sell fish (both freshly caught and frozen at sea) right off the boats.

We were here for a dinner and arrived early so decided to walk around the area. The area gives off a very nice small town feeling in the urban Richmond area. There are sidewalks lined with many stores and restaurants, some of them familiar (Starbucks), and most of them independent and unique. Another great thing is that the fishing ships... More

We liked the cycling around Steveston, along the Fraser River, and the ocean. The food choices are excellent; there are plenty of coffee houses and placed to get good ice-cream.
