We used the Tourism group to get some general information. They were very helpful even though we didn't book any trips with them. The location is very convenient to the corner of Government Street, the harbor and Empress Hotel.

This must be one of the best Information Centres I've ever been in. Everything is laid out with meticulous attention to detal around the well lit, well ventilated room. The staff are pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. Booking for all excursions could be easier.
