Owner description: Just around the corner from Victoria's Inner Harbour, Fisherman's Wharf is a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. This unique marine destination offers food kiosks, unique shops and eco-tour adventures in the heart of the working harbour. Wander down the docks with your lunch, buy seafood fresh off the boat, see moored pleasure vessels and float homes, and watch as fishing vessels unload their wares.

This is definitely a highlight with tourists. Fish and chips is the most popular item on the menus of the various restaurants. Finding a place to sit is a challenge. After lunch, a stroll on the check out the colourful house boats is in order. Those who still have room for ice cream can give in to their cravings as they stroll!

The houses that are floating on the warf next to the little restaurants are wonderful to stroll around and get a peak at, as well as the views of boats passing and planes landing, it is quite a sight to see if you have some time to pass.

This was a wonderful place for lunch in Victoria. We had Fish & Chips from Barb's, fed the harbor seals, listened to some live music and had a great time. Definitely recommend a visit here.

The houseboats are all different and each one has been uniquely decorated. The owners are nice to talk to and are full of local lore. The restaurants open up for lunch and the atmosphere is bustling with lots of tourists.
