This is a very small fisherman's wharf but a great place to spend an hour or two. A couple of fish and chip shops and a Mexican shop, some unique and fun float homes, and the occasional seal are mainly what you will ind here.

Fishermans Wharfs is high on the list of every traveller to Victoria island. Its a quirky place with unusual wooden houseboats set around the wooden wharf. You can walk up and down the boats and have a nosey look at people living in the boats....More

Beautiful place to take a nice local bit and enjoy the beautiful colourful house boats. During the season, you can also take a taxi boat to here.

I'd love to live here - so quaint. Well, maybe not when the cruise ships are in - but I was very surprised at the uniqueness of the Wharf.

Lovely walking around the cute houseboats & the few restaurants/cafes that were open. Great fish n chips & fish tacos. A shame more shops weren’t open for a Sunday as there were plenty of families. Good idea having kids lifejackets & the park next door...More

Just go for a walk along the pontoons to enjoy the colourful floating homes. boats and cafes. Good fish to be had, plenty of trips to arrange and good "people watching" in the evening but best done on a balmy summers day I would suggest.
