"If you're wondering what it's like to live here, little buddy, I should tell you that all the float homes have access to potable water and 30 amp power. Also, the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (@vicharbour
) provides sewage hookups to prevent the discharge of black water. Owners need to pay monthly moorage fees, and they pay property taxes. But even so, by Victoria standards, where the housing costs have soared, these homes tend to be low-priced. In fact, they are rarely listed for more than a day before being bought for the asking price, or more.
There are currently 33 berths in the Fisherman's Wharf Float Home Village. All of them are occupied, and aside from the residents, they share the neighborhood with gulls, seals, eagles, geese, raccoons, herons, otters, and cormorants." - Comrade (the human)
