Steveston Harbour

The Steveston Harbour was and is a working harbour managed by the Steveston Harbour Authority. The Gulf of Georgia Cannery and the 100 year old Canada Fishing Company (Canfisco) is now a national historic site with excellent tours and displays.
Steveston Harbour is home to the largest fishing fleet in Canada. And lucky for us, there's a large Fish Sales Float were you can purchase just caught salmon, shrimp, and other wonderful seafood delights right off the fishing boats.
In addition to fishing boats, large tugs pull barges with heavy loads up and down the neighbouring Fraser River.

  1. Harbour shots are always great, but I esp. like your middle shot Margy. Looks like it was taken right from mid-channel.

  4. What a gorgeous spot. I cannot even begin to imagine being able to walk up to a boat and get your fresh fish. That would be heavenly. There are so many boats in the harbor. Such an interesting and pretty series of photos. genie

  5. Wonderful shots. I love harbors, even more so since it's 1,000 miles to the nearest one!
