Frequently Asked Questions

Wheeled access to the Causeway is through Ship Point via exiting Wharf Street. The docks are wheelchair and motorized chair accessible, but please note that there is a long ramp to access both the Causeway and Ship Point docks. Accessible washrooms for wheelchairs and motorized chairs are in the lower level of the Tourism Victoria Centre where the Prince of Whales is located. This entrance is only accessible via the Causeway, not from street level.

No, we move our entire operations including point of sale systems to our dockside gift shop, so the Maritime Museum of BC gallery at 744 Douglas Street has to remain closed during the Festival. Donations to the Festival do not count as admission to the Museum.

Yes, absolutely! Pets must be kept leashed and supervised to ensure the safety of all near the water.

Yes! The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority maintains a lifejacket station run by the Canadian Coast Guard with life jackets sized for children; these can be borrowed while you are on the docks. Our safety plan includes St. John Ambulance volunteers aboard Delta Lifeboat right on the docks for minor scrapes and splinters. As in any situation, if there is an emergency, we will be calling 9-1-1.

The sail past runs from the Inner Harbour to Clover Point. Anywhere along this route would be a great place to watch. Since it happens over the lunch period, we recommend going to Fishermen’s Wharf to enjoy some fish and chips from Barb’s while watching the sail past!

The sail race occurs between Clover Point and Ogden Point. You should be able to view the race from anywhere along this route!
