Jackson's Ice Cream

How I heard of this place: We knew we had to make it to Fisherman’s Wharf to view the Floating Village at some point before the end of our weekend getaway, and Jackson’s just happened to be staring us in the face when we arrived! It was a well-deserved treat after a long day of biking 10km, walking miles on end arriving at the west end of Laurel Point for sunset.

Type of cuisine: Serving sixteen flavours of scooped Ice Cream, Gelato Sorbetto, Frozen Yogurt and the best Soft Ice Cream you will find anywhere. All products are locally made. Open 11:30 till dark all summer long.

Ambiance: Jackson’s is located on the dock at #1 Dallas Rd. Fisherman’s Wharf. Victoria’s only floating Ice Cream store!..Cool down with the perfect summer treat while enjoying the casual atmosphere and always friendly service!

What I ordered: My husband chose the chocolate-vanilla mix soft serve Sundae (CAD$4) with chocolate and caramel sauces,

while I indulged in the waffle cone (CAD$3.75) stuffed with half-scoops each of Maple Walnut and Caramel Praline.

What I loved: Creaminess. Sweet. Buttery. Ice. Cream.

Why I loved it: It’s the perfect setting to walk up, choose an ice cream flavor (or two) and meander along the piers, taking in the sites of the floating homes, sunset in the marina and a friendly sea otter swimming up to greet passerby.
