Take a leisurely stroll around the colorful wooden buildings and boardwalks of Fisherman's Wharf, where you can peruse a host of seafood kiosks and freshly caught fish for sale. Buy some fish to feed to the resident seals and otters, or consider taking a whale-watching excursion from the wharf. Keep your eyes peeled for birds flying about the wharf, with bald eagles occasionally spotted in the area. It's worth arriving with an empty stomach, as the wharf offers a lot of tasty dishes to try.

  • Barb's Fish and Chips still pumps out a generally good product. It's a touristy spot, but a fun experience. They've done a good job of improving the adjacent park. It's lovely to eat snacks and hang in the Sun there. It gets busy as Fuca on the wharf so be prepared for lineups. Albeit rather quick ones.
  • First time I had fish tacos, and they were very good! Made with fresh caught fish. It was also very scenic. Resident harbor seal hanging out and looking for handouts.
  • Great tourist and weekend with the family spot. Decent food options and lots of fresh seafood. Really interesting float homes and seals are usually nearby since they're used to being fed.
  • Great place to go for an stroll. So much to look at. A great selection of food to choose from and and bustling atmosphere.
  • A fun place to hang out, eat local seafood fare, and get a taste for some touristy Victoria fun. Not much going out in the off season, but you can still see lots of sealife and perhaps feed a seal or two. Worth a quick visit on a beautiful day when moving between the local sites and attractions.
