A real treat to eat fresh seafood from an area that was home to the BC fishing fleet. Spent many hours as a kid with my dad on his fishing boat here in Steveston.

No matter what time of year the walk on the Steveston Fisherman's Wharf is a pleasant way to spend time. The Wharf features fresh air, interesting fish vendors and a nice variety of restaurants for a coffee or delightful seafood meal! Most restaurants have beautiful seaside views of the Wharf and beyond. Be sure to dress for the weather, wear... More

Visited this place on a cold monday morning. Nothing much to do. Restaurants opens 12 noon not the usual 11 AM. They have a very good restaurants all over the place. Went to the pier and found this small shop for souvenir. You can tour the place just by walking. Was not able to join a whale watching tour because... More

Amazing views along the way. If you like history, a place to go and learn about The first fisherman. A nice place to visit . You can see all the preservation of the old buildingsite and also the building where the boats are fixing.

Walking on the dock of the fisherman's market, you can have an access to the original lifestyle of Canadian people. They immigrated to this slice of heaven from Europe, Asia, and other places centuries ago. As the peaceful life pattern is being replaced by the busy post-modern one, this village provides you a precious oasis to trace back how our... More

The wild chum salmon was in abundance today and cost us only $10 per fish, regardless of size!! In summer, this place is said to be an expensive tourist area. In pre winter rainy cold conditions like today, shops close early and the fish are also better priced!! It is a lovely picture spot, especially at dawn or dusk! The... More

Came for 2 reasons, whale watching tour and as a fan of Once Upon a Time. The village itself is lovely, I like that none of the building are more than 2 floors/storeys high. Lots of history for such a small place and also amazing views. Quite nice just to wander at your own pace outside of the hustle and... More
