This area of Victoria is interesting and worth the walk from the harbour. Fisherman's wharf is a small area with boardwalks and houseboats. We investigated Whale watching from here but thought it was expensive compared to the harbour area. Its a pretty area and a...More

Located just a few very easy walkable short blocks north of the Parliament Buildings and the inner harbour. Wheelchair accessible, but there is a bit of a steep ramp down and back up to the street. A few places to choose from to eat, fish...More

Take the water taxi or if you are able, walk the the edge of the bay to Fisherman's wharf. There are many table and several choices for lunch. Sit near the delightful houseboats ( or float houses) and look out on the harbor.

The wharf is a fun spot with some quirky little spots to eat. The oysters are great. Add to this a small community of floating houses and a small fishing fleet and you have the foundation of something kind of cool. A very easy walk...More

It's such a funky harbour with residences, fishing boats, big cruisers, and lots to eat. We had fish and chips and both raw and cooked oysters and they were all just as good as in a 5 star hotel. We walked around the corner to...More

It's about a 5 block walk. All flat but a good 15 minutes. Might be too far for your Mom although there are many benches to stop and rest in between or you can take a Kabuki cab ( bicycle with trailer)

Some people live at Fisherman's Wharf. So it does not close. The businesses are open throughout the summer.
