A little scary with a toddler, so make sure you watch your children very closely. Otherwise it was one of my favourite places! Loved feeding the sea lions, all the restaurants were great. Cute and definitely a must-see if you are visiting Victoria!

Great place to check out for a spell. There is a water taxi stop, whale watching tours, great places to eat and its a beautiful walk along the harbor. Lots to do here.

Caught a water taxi here after coming in a seaplane as the wharf was recommended for lunch. It's a wharf with fish and chip vendors nothing you would not see anywhere else, there was also a Mexican, sushi, donut & ice cream stand.

It's a local Food Truck Caravan on a Pier. It's not Pier 39 in San Francisco or the Santa Monica Pier in LA. But it is charming, reasonably priced, and within a short walking distance from the Government Street Market area. A water taxi will...More

A few good food options surrounded by fascinating private floating houses. Loved the fish tacos. Deals often visit so that can be fun but it's hardly outstanding; just a nicer location than the average eating area.

Wow, love that place. It's small but you can find there so many diverse decorations and things which will blow your mind. :D

I am sure to someone who thinks Myrtle Beach or Vegas is charming might like this place but to us it was cheesy and gaudy. A floating food court is all it is. Surely 100 years ago it was great but not today.

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.
