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 was a pleasant walk. There were some boats and floating homes, which were very interesting. In fact, the floating village was one of the best parts. The food outlets were ok, but nothing special. I enjoyed watching the seals play, and watch the humans!
We finished our walk with a coffee at the cafe overlooking the wharf. Good coffee. I liked that it was independent, not a chain.

Like the walk about looking at the boats and houseboats . The line ups for food was way too long and finally gave up!! . Upside the food must be good if you have the patience! seeing the harbour seals was a treat.

Barb's Fish and Chip Shop has been there for years and one of the best places to eat. Also very interesting is the walk along the wharf and looking at the float homes. Can be very busy in the summertime.

A nice, inexpensive place for lunch or dinner. Outdoor seating only, so it's a good weather venue. Seagulls, seals, local sailors, and interesting boats add to the atmosphere.
