Whilst on a yachting holiday in Nanaimo you are sure to want to sample some of the best local sights and activities our beautiful city has to offer.
In this top tip to-do list we will walk you through some of the weirdest and wonderful experiences you can have here whilst holidaying. So in no particular order; let’s start with the weird…
This family business started over 50 years ago and is known for producing tinned pacific seafood goods.
The founder, after whom the cannery is still named, Armand St Jean was born in 1913 and grew the business to success it still enjoys today.
Visitors can watch the process as well as stock up on products to enjoy on board the yacht later on.
Nanaimo Bar Trail
The Nanaimo Bar Trail is famed world-wide, with over 30 stops (if your stamina allows), at each of which you can sample some fabulous foods and beverages.
The bars themselves are steeped in history and intrigue too, and it is during the bar trail you can find out some little nuggets of local knowledge from the regulars propping up the bars.
These sea bikes have two pontoons which make it somewhat resemble a jet ski. But instead of standing, you can sit on a comfortable reclining seat or a traditional bike seat.
The faster you pedal the smoother the ride, so it also provides you with a great work out!
The museum itself is also well worth a visit with its ever changing range of indoor and outdoor exhibitions which help visitors get to know the area.
Vancouver Island University’s International Centre for Sturgeon Studies is the hub of sturgeon protection.
These creatures are absolutely fascinating, and have been part of the world’s ecosystem for over 200 million years.
The Floating Pub
It is the only registered floating pub in Nanaimo, and its location provides an unforgettable experience for patrons.
Visiting at dusk is the best time, so you can see the sun disappear behind the mountains whilst supping a nice cool beer – or whatever else takes your fancy off the menu.
Snorkel with Seals
If snorkelling with seals is what you seek. You swim through a narrow pass between the rocks and find a bunch of the cheeky furry creatures sunbathing and ready to swim with you.
Now to end on an oldy but a goody. Renting a Kayak is a great way to get closer to the water whilst on your yachting holiday and really immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery here in Nanaimo.
