Local Activities
Known by locals as ‘the bungy zone’ there is bungy jumping, high ropes, and more. Even if you’re not interested in jumping yourself, it’s worth the stop while driving by to watch some people jump.

Kayak rental place at the bottom of the hill. We recommend grabbing some kayaks, exploring the islands, then taking a break at the dingy dock pub! Call in advance to reserve, or be prepared to wait (millers pub is next door if there’s a wait).

Depending on what you are looking for, this could be a great activity. It is a nice local lake where you could go swimming, but the main attraction is the trail that goes around the lake. There are a couple different paths that make it shorter or longer, but generally around 6KM, which is good for walking or running. There is one hill if you start to the left, but other than that it is quite flat.

Nanaimo River is a local favourite as well. This could be dangerous at some sport, so be sure to ask us, or the tourism centre where to go, and what to look out for.

A short ferry ride from Nanaimo, this is a great option for a day trip. Gabriola has a laid-back charm to it. One thing it is known for is its art galleries, beaches, and local shops.
