Located just south of Victoria’s downtown core, James Bay is a collaboration of residential streets surrounded by a waterfront roadway, perfect for walking or cycling. Watch the busy harbour traffic of cruise ships, ferries, sailboats and floatplanes from the Ogden Point breakwater, a cement path leading from Dallas Road jutting out 800m into the Juan De Fuca Straight. James Bay also features the Fishermans Wharf, a popular tourist destination in the summer where visitors can feed the harbour seals while surrounded by houseboats and enjoy a snack from one of the many small food stands.


Home to Victoria’s popular Cook Street Village, Fairfield is located adjacent to the downtown core. A mixture of single-family homes and low-rise apartments, Fairfield is the perfect area for anyone looking for the convenience of downtown with the slower-pace of a residential neighbourhood. A short walk past the boutique shops and restaurants of Cook Street will lead you to the waterfront seawall of Dallas Road, the perfect 3km promenade on one of Victoria’s many beautiful sunny days.
