Reviews for Causeway Floats Greater Victoria Harbor Authority
Can't get closer to town than this, 2016-07-13
Captain: , Charlestown (946)

You are right downtown. Walking distance to just about everything. Public transportation is great. Plenty of taxis as well. A trip to Buchart Gardens is a must, even if you are not a garden enthusiist, this will knock your socks off. A tour of the Parliment Building is great as is a visit to the museum. We did the bus tour to get an overview of the entire city and this was worth it. Taking the municipal bus to the gardens works great. No need for a taxi or paying for the tour bus. The last bus leaving the gardens is at 8:49. In the summer the days are long so you kind of miss the look of the gardens being lit at night. Frankie's dinner is a great meal anytime, don't miss it. Il Terrazzo Italian restarnt was great. You need reservations and it is worth the cost. the atmosphere and food are wonderful.

Spent 3 nights here overlooking the Empress Hotel and the Parliment Building. Beautiful during the day but at night...this place really lights up. Clean docks, great staff, easy docking. Clearing customs and fuel dock is conveniently located upon enterance to the harbor. Keep the marker bouys to your port side when entering and departing

Best Possible Canada Day Berth!!, 2013-07-10
Captain: , Vancouver (282)

Incredible location across from The Empress hotel puts all of Victoria at your feet. We tied up at the causeway docks for Canada Day celebrations and it was spectacular -- truly memorable. Out for wonderful dinner, then concerts, people, fireworks, magical. Minor incoveniences: a bit noisy (party atmosphere) and you have to hike a ways to get to the showers. The facilities are very nice, however.

Captain: , Port Isabel TX (640)

Our 30 foot boat was $61 per night includes tax and electricity. Not a bad value for being right downtown. Our site on G dock looked right up at the Empress Hotel and the Parliment building. Grass in abundance for your dog. We look forward to coming back again. A poster said that High Tea at the Empress was a must. We did not have High Tea at the Empress, at $60 per person plus tax and tip, just too rich for us. We could stay a couple of extra nights for the one hour experience.

This is indeed a very fun place to visit. The rates are now at the upper end of the range. The current information is here:

We love this area, 2011-02-05
Captain: , Olalla, WA (342)

We travel here multiple times a year. Love watching the entertainers on the Promenade perform every day and late into the evening. Great restuarants throughout the city. Best fish and chips is at the Days Inn across from the ferry terminal. Lots of great sites and we never tire of walking the town and hitting all the shops.

A wonderful downtown area., 2010-12-29
Captain: , Sequim, WA (676)

Always a favorite stop. Breakfast at the Blue Fox, Dinner at Il Terrazzo, it doesn't get any better. Clean docks, a bit noisy and open to "visitors" but well worth it.

Causeway Floats at Victoria"s Empress Hotel, 2009-07-01
Captain: , Port Ludlow WA (75)

A must do, at least once, when cruising San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands. Easy trip from Puget Sound; not far out of the way when heading to Inside Passage. We thoroughly enjoyed the variety of sites and activities especially BC Parliment Building. The Empress is a magnificient building reminiscent of elegant Victorian times. We had tea in the Empress; a memorable experience in more ways than one ( bring more $ than you would expect ). We cleared Canadian Customs by telephone at the nearby customs dock. Greater Victoria Harbour Authority will assign a first-come-first-served slip at one of several Inner Harbour Marinas; call on VHF 66A when entering the harbor. The one to get if you want to be downtown by the Empress is Causeway Floats.

Great place to stay, close to all the shops bars and restaurants. The buildings at night are spectacular.

What a treat!, 2007-12-04
Captain: , Tropical Tip of Texas (145)

We stayed in the Inner Harbour, with a view of the Empress Hotel and the Parliament Building from the boat. Right in the heart of Victoria, easy walking distance to a wonderful variety of shops and restaurants. The Harbour Authority staff was helpful in guiding us to our slip. After weeks on the hook while visiting Desolation Sound, this was a real treat. Good public transit for getting around town. Entertainment on the waterfront. Not quiet, but a very pleasant stay.
