  • Soon on our arrival we stopped at the Marina. It's amazing how interaction with the seals. You can buy some fish at the site which has been cut and feed them. The party that they do, clapping in water is an unforgettable experience. Imagine the reaction of children on this ride!

  • The Oak Bay Marina is a lot of fun, from feeding the seals to the excellent coffee at the coffee shop around back to the new sushi bar. Highly recommend visiting, we go every year when in Victoria  more »

  • Facilities are kept in great shape. Electrical is reliable and water service to the docks is maintained year round. Staff are friendly and helpful. The prices for permanent moorage are not cheap but seem reasonable given the location and facilities. The burrows are big but there not many of them which can be an issue on busy days. Outer docks on the east of the marina are subject to at times dramatic wave and wind action. Extra fenders, chaffing protection and lines are recommended. I would take off all unnecessary sails and covers for the winter and check the boat frequently. Big wish is if they had better waste disposal for chemicals and batteries, etc.
  • (Note: This is not a review for boaters) Stunning stretch of road that offers views of character homes, and ends at a sweeping marina. Go to the gift shop that has a neat variety of goods and purchase fish from the freezer. Go out and feed the seals. Some will slap the water for your attention, but make sure to get the shy guys who stay at the back. Video your companion as a seagull swoops and steals a piece of fish. A must-visit in Victoria! Washrooms located by gift shop. Full service restaurant also on site.
  • Amazing setting with great service! The food was absolutely amazing. Quite pricey but will definitely be going back! Lovely view over the harbour
  • Very beautiful views of the sea can be found here. A great place to relax and bring your family and loved ones to for a stroll and some sightseeing. There is plenty of parking space and a good amount of amenities in the area.
  • Our favourite spot when visiting Victoria. We get pre-packaged herring at the store and feed the harbour seals. There aren't many places you can interact with animals like this in such a personal way. Nothing but smiles...a great way to spend an afternoon.
