“Great place to photograph”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We added this location as part of a camera club photo excursion - everyone was impressed with the historical buildings and we all captured some excellent images. Lots of great textures in the old weathered building and equipment. We visited in the early morning and in a slight drizzle so there weren't too many people around. Watch out for dog droppings if you go off the trail and onto the grass!

“A Trip Back in Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This historic attraction is one not to miss. I am a local and find it more interesting each time I go. All the renovations to bring this Ship Yard back to the days of 'when' has all been done by volunteers. The building are historic sites and have been kept in place to allow them to keep the status.

If you are going to Steveston don't miss this attraction.

“Enjoyed the tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Though I live in the Vancouver area I had never been to Steveston before. Our visit to the shipyard was very enjoyable, and our guide very knowledgeable.

“Loved the old buildings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

When they get this place fully open with guides it will be even further amazing. Loved that you could just walk around and learn at your own pace. Price was perfect - donation! and no charge for parking!!!
