What is a Float Home?
The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority has set aside up to 33 berths specifically for floating residences. These float homes are moored on fingers A, B, and C. All float home spots are currently occupied.
The owners live in their homes, steps from the commercial plaza and popular visitor location. There are no absentee owners and float homes are not rented. Respect for personal property and the privacy of the float home customers is critical to the enjoyment of the space.
Float home owners live in a centre of lively activity. The area is a crossroads for harbour ferries, float planes, kayaks, fishing and pleasure vessels. Owners share their neighborhood with harbour seals, herons, eagles, geese, cormorants, gulls, otters and raccoons.
