Victoria Inner Harbour Boat Show
The Victoria Inner Harbour Boat Show is hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA) and has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast. The show is an opportunity for yacht brokers to display and sell boats for sale to a wide audience who can go on board all of the boats and discuss the many features with knowledgeable and professionally certified brokers. There are usually around 200 boats of all sizes in the water as well as many marine related business displays located under a large tent on Ship Point, featuring everything from boat yard services, hardware, equipment, navigation electronics, clothing, etc. People attending the show over its four-day run can expect to spend many delightful hours touring the boats of their dreams, seeing the latest yachts both new and used, and witnessing many interesting demonstrations. Sales often occur right at the show, as the brokers are usually prepared to offer special pricing for an at-the-show sale.
Victoria's Inner Harbour
With a rich history starting with its use by the First Nations, Victoria's Inner Harbour is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. The Port of Victoria, although a major tourist attraction, remains a working harbour with a rich mixture of activities. Recreational vessels and small cruise ships line the centre of this famous heritage city, just steps from its historic streets and distinctive architecture. During the summer months, the harbour is lively and the focus of festivals, shows and music.
