Welcome to Nanaimo, B.C.’s sixth largest city and Vancouver Island’s outdoor recreation heaven. From first-class scuba diving and snorkelling to golf, hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, shopping and dining, Nanaimo has something for everyone who loves to eat, drink and play.
This seaside Vancouver Island town is known as the Bathtub Racing Capital of the World! The city is fondly called “Hub, Tub and Pub City” for its love affair with bathtub racing and lively watering holes. You can catch some live action bathtub racing at the city’s Marine Festival and Bathtub Races
With regular ferry service from the mainland, Nanaimo is also a gateway to many other popular tourist cities on Vancouver Island, including Tofino, Comox Valley, Parksville, Campbell River, and Port Alberni, as well as many of the Gulf Islands dotting the Strait of Georgia.
