The only floating pub in all of Canada. The only way to get to it is via kayak or using the pub's boat shuttle service. You can then explore the island by golfcart (there are no cars).

Sightseeing
Despite being right in the harbour, going to the island feels like you are stepping into another world. There are no cars on the island just bikes and golf buggies. You get the boat over from McGregor Park. It is run by the Dinghy Dock pub.

The Old City Quarter is nestled in the heart of Nanaimo, just steps from the downtown core. Consisting of a collection of owner operated businesses, from specialty food stores to metaphysical treasures to wealth managers and chiropractors, the Old City Quarter oozes vibrancy and community. Originally the economic centre of the city, the area is a charming mix of revitalized heritage buildings and thoughtful new development. It has become the number one destination for shopping in Nanaimo and a hub for doers and relaxers alike.

The Bastion, built between 1853-1855, is the only known remaining freestanding tower structure built by the Hudson's Bay Company. As such, it is a unique example of a defense fortification built by a company that played a major role in Canadian history. The Bastion's unusual octagonal shape and high visibility from both land and sea make it Nanaimo's premier landmark.
