For Those That Want To Explore Locally

Regularly scheduled return shuttle buses are waiting to transport guests to the downtown Nanaimo area to explore the Art Gallery, the Museum which features First Nations culture or Cemetery Tours, the Nanaimo Bar Trail and the island’s largest shopping districts. Buskers and street musicians entertain in all central areas.  Energetic guests can easily walk the 2 kms and connect to the picturesque  Harbourview walkway that leads to the Bastion,  Maffeo Sutton Park where ferries  or kayaks take visitors to Newcastle Island Provincial Park, Protection Island and the Dinghy Dock Pub or Gabriola Island and the Petroglyphs.  Bikes and scooters are available for those that want to explore further afield, but the most spectacular of all would be to take a float plane tour and truly soak in the majestic scenery from a higher point of view!
