Downtown amenities adjacent to the marina, easy access to the beautiful mid-island region and engaging Port staff ensure that boaters’ experience exceeds expectations. Repeat boaters tell us: “Nanaimo, it’s a must stop and it’s amazing what you can do here!”

There is no shortage of enticing activities to enjoy on the land adjoining Nanaimo's waterfront.
