Victoria BC Inner Harbour Experience

The centre of all activity in Victoria is our beautiful and quaint Inner Harbour. It is a working harbour. Every month over 2000 float planes come and go from the Harbour. Daily sailings of the Coho Ferry to Port Angeles and the Clipper Ferries to Seattle also leave from the Inner Harbour. Tourists flood the area when the come in on these transportation modes. In the spring and summer months buskers entertain and artists and artisans sell their products under umbrellas along the causeay. There is a government dock covering much of the East side of the harbour so there are always lots of water craft tied up and some very fancy yachts. Celbrities from around the world visit our tiny port. The harbour ferries come and go as do the many whale watching charters, wildlife charter, fishing charters and tour operators.There is even more activity when you go above the causeway. There are historic plaques along government street above the causeway. Check them out. Right across the street is the BC Legislative building and kitty-corner is the Provincial Museum and Imax Theatre. Just to the north of the Inner Harbour is "Old Towne" and tons of shopping. Enjoy our inner Harbour.
