Whenever we're entertaining first time visitors to Victoria we make a stop at Fisherman's wharf. It fits in nicely as an ending destination after a walk along the harbour. There are several food options, it is fun to see the floating homes, and the seals are always a hit. Fun for all ages and is a great option on a... More

We came here on the weekend to see Sammy the seal & his buddy's and were not disappointed. The seals were at dock looking for some tasty treats which can be purchased for one of the fish mongers. We also had a couple of otters come and play, waiting for the public to feed them some treats. Not a lot... More

Take the walk here from downtown. Interesting restaurants in the summer, fewer in winter. Seals and sea otters all year round.

We did not realize that this attraction is not open in the winter (until after we paid for expensive parking!) I would also caution travelers that these are not restaurants (that I could see) but mostly food stands with some outdoor seating. I have been to other wharves and even though I expected this one to be smaller I was... More

We enjoyed a cute walk along the waterfront. We visited in the evening so not as many places were open but it was still enjoyable.

We walked from our hotel near Govt. St. That was a pretty good hike but not bad and we enjoyed it. Fisherman's wharf is fairly touristy, but it was still fun to see the seals up close.
