“Lots of activity, lovely views”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

I've never seen as much variety in boat traffic in such a small harbour - from large ferries to kayaks, sailboats, yachts, rowboats, water taxis, even seaplanes landing and taking off. There are lovely buildings and landscaping and walkways all around the harbour. With all the activity on the water, it's great for a sightseeing walk.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

A wonderful place to stroll and soak up the charm of Victoria! There's so much to see and take in, including shopping stands with cool stuff. Be sure to stop by the visitor information center there.

“Harbor Tour worth the money”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The tour lasted an hour and half -giving you a good overview of the different areas you might to see in more depth. The pickel pub tour sounded good but we ran out of time. Staff very helpful

“Wish I was back there now”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Sure, there are tourist traps, but magnificent old buildings, ships and boats galore, tiny water taxis and ferries mingling with kayaks, the seabirds everywhere...and the smell of salt water. We walked through the inner harbour several times each day, going off to restaurants and pubs for dinner, taking part in the breakfasts for which many residents seem to go out regularly, buying from gifted laid-back artisans with their carvings and other wares laid out along the seawall. Above all, just enjoying the water day and night.
