Fisherman's Wharf, Victoria: Hours, Address, Fisherman's Wharf Reviews: 4.5/5

Kids love to feed the seals here

Jun 2012 • Couples

The walk along the inner harbour ends at this floating village. It is a fun place for a stroll. The highlights are the seals which know the tourists will buy them some fish so that they can get close up. We took some great photos of them. For tourists on a budget a free attraction on a sunny afternoon. We walked from here round to Ogden point where the cruise liners dock and saw a sea otter sunning itself on the driftwood.

It’s not as big as Fisherman‘s Wharf in San Francisco but it has a nice charm to it as well. Fisherman‘s Wharf in Victoria consists of colorful floating houses and restaurants and is a lovely place to relax, drink, eat and to see seals. It’s also the starting point of many whale watching tours.
I loved the flair of this place and you shouldn’t miss while in Victoria.

Fisherman's Wharf in Richmond, BC

Your chance to see Richmond’s fishing industry up-close and personal.

*Please note that the Steveston Harbour Authority now requires the wearing of a face mask or face cover in order to access the wharf. Details can be found here.*

Along the pier next to Steveston Landing is Fisherman’s Wharf, where incredible river views give way to the village’s famed commercial fishing fleet—the largest in Canada. The catch of the day is unloaded here for sale, and you can buy shrimp, Dungeness crab, sea urchin, and spot prawns from the very anglers who caught them. While the public fish sales float is always open, fishing vessels keep their own hours and come and go as they please, so you never know what will be on offer! Check out the Steveston Harbour Authority’s website to learn more.

False Creek Fishermen's Wharf

  • My partner and I decided to do a Sea Choice Tour to learn more about sustainable seafood.  One of the places on our map was the False Creek Fishermen's Wharf.  Now, we had stopped by there before about two weeks before and we were not impressed with all the frozen fish selections.  After all, we all know that frozen fish is not fresh fish.  However, this time, the fishermen were ready to talk with us about more.  They explained how they fish (no nets only hooks and traps), how they preserve the fish at sea (freezing the fish at - 50 degrees within minutes of catching it) and how it is smoked (must be smoked/prepared by someone other than the fishermen who caught it).  We learned that frozen is not always fresh, but it is is frozen at sea opposed to being hours/days later on land, then frozen can be fresh.  They also taught us about why spotted prawn are better for consumption over the tiger prawn.  Spotted prawn may taste different, but that doesn't mean bad.  Try some spotted prawn and support local fishermen.

    And as always.... Have Fun!!!

  • Free 15 minute parking is just enough time to grab some fresh seafood from the dock.

    Being able to figure out when the boats will arrive with their catch is the tricky part.

  • Catch of the day....fresh sockeye salmon from the docks. Now that's freshy and good. You get a discount if you buy 5 or more whole fish. Just ask and get to know the folks working around the area!

  • Get your Spot Prawns here, or anything else they have on sale straight off the boats. See in Canada a fisherman can freeze his catch on the boat and then sell it dock side to whoever he wants to and that includes YOU. I see salmon both fresh in season and frozen out of season and all the other critters we have here about including sea urchin and geoduck sometimes.

  • Pretty much the same review as I gave for the Steveston Fisherman's Wharf. A go-to place for fresh seafood (flash frozen IS fresh people) and a great place to talk to the fishers who work their arses off to bring you amazing bounty.

    Check out the website to see what is being sold and be amazed by the selection, freshness AND price.

    One of my top spots in YVR.
