Memories of your whale watching experience will last a lifetime!

Steveston, a historic village on the southwest tip of Lulu Island in Richmond, is named for Manoah Steves. In 1878, Manoah and Martha Steves and their six children were the first non-Aboriginal family to settle in the area after purchasing 121 hectares of land north of Garry Point. In 1880, Manoah’s son William purchased land to develop a townsite known as Steves. By 1890, Steves was known as Steveston and had a church, hotels, retail stores, an opera house, a wharf, and Lulu Island’s first hospital and newspaper.
