This pub has brilliant views across the harbour to downtown Victoria. You can get there from downtown inner harbour opposite the Empress Hotel, by the little harbour ferries. The drive is about 8 mins from downtown over the Johnson Street bridge. The food is just okay a lot of the time but it has its own brewery.

Fisherman's Wharf is a small but nice little place to visit. There are colourful houseboats and various cafes for a quick meal including fish and chips. You can get here by taking a little harbour ferry from the inner harbour or just drive from downtown. There are usually seals to watch as they bob up and down, hoping for a morsel.
