Steveston village offers a plethora of attractions. We bring all our guests here for more than 20 years. Time after time they are impressed and excited. Stroll the boardwalks. Dine in numerous café and restaurants that serve fish just out of the ocean. Buy fish, shrimp or fish roe from one of a dozen fishermen boats moored right here and... More

There are tons of restaurants and little shops to visit. You can also buy fish directly from boats which is pretty awesome.

A pleasant charming village by the sea. Quiet place to enjoy a day. There are restaurants, shops, piers where fishing boats return with their catch to sell. When you are done with Steveston, stop by Richmond town centre visit Yaohan Mall food court to experience an array of Asian food delights. Richmond is truly The China Town of Vancouver Metropolitan.

We keep returning to Steveston, at least twice a year recently. There always seems to be something new to experience and the variety of restaurants, coffee shops and stores can easily make you forget how much time - and how much money - one can spend there.

I love visiting this historic fishing village every time I visit Vancouver ...the vibe, architecture and seafood is great...we ate at Daves seafoods...clam chowder New England style (creamy) followed by pan fried halibut ...so delicious. A walk along the waterfront at sunset (4pm) as winter is always stunning. Followed by rum lattes and mocha coffees to warm up at Rocanini.... More

This sleepy looking little wonderland is a short distance to the south of Steveston either walk or cycle. It's well worth a look so long as you are careful not to disturb the few rare people who live here. I hope they will be maintained in some way. They live very simply and make their own contribution to the place... More

Great family oriented place to visit. The Cannery Museum is very informative. Walking through the quite and peaceful Fishing Sea Port with fishing boats offering fresh caught sea food is fantastic. Numerous eateries and bars surround the area and they offer a variety of fresh sea food. I love walking around the great area and always get a good meal... More

This is a quaint Fishing Village, on Lulu Island and is part of Richmond. Plenty of restaurants but my favourite on is Pagos located near the Steveston cannery. If you are visiting Vancouver going to Steveston either for a day out or for a meal is highly recommended.

Although the price of admission is a little costly the museum is worth visiting. It gives you a look into the history of Stevenson's fishing history.
