"Steveston, BC - Historic Fishing Village" Top 5 Page for this destination Steveston by frankcanfly

Steveston Travel Guide: 98 reviews and 231 photos

Located about 25 minutes south of central Vancouver, this small village has appeal for someone like me, who seeks to find heritage and history information.

Since the decline of the Newfoundland and Nova Scotian fisheries, this is now Canada's largest commercial fishery. You'll find Canneries and Shipyards here, and a kitschy downtown and waterfront area.

If it weren't for VT, and of course, Robyn (Carmanah), I may have missed visiting this tiny village.

    Frank, I can't believe you were a 2 minute walk away from my house and I had no clue! I worked at that whale watch company all summer! Glad you got to see Steveston! :D
