The Nanaimo Port Authority welcomes you to our vibrant harbour, site of major transportation connections, events, entertainment, recreation, culture and one of the best full service marinas on the West Coast.

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. From relaxing seaside walks to dining, shopping or enjoying an evening of theatre, life on the seaside of the 'Harbour City' offers point of interest at every turn. The Port of Nanaimo has been an active player in the planning, development, and management of most of these foreshore amenities and highlights.
