Fodor's Review

Victoria Harbour Ferries has its terminal at this fun nautical spot just west of the Inner Harbour. You can watch fishers unload their catches and admire the various vessels, or picnic in the shoreside park. If you stroll the docks and walk among the colorful houseboats, you'll come across several floating shacks where you can buy ice cream and live crabs, take kayak tours, and buy tickets for whale-watching cruises. Other booths sell fish to feed the harbor seals who

often visit the quay. The busiest vendor is Barb's, an esteemed fish-and-chips spot, though locals tend to gravitage to Red Fish-Blue Fish on the Inner Harbour, below the pink building. Barb's is only open in the summer, May through October.
