Stretching across kilometres of Pacific Ocean shoreline, Nanaimo is aptly referred to as the Harbour City. Those ocean waters are the source of many activities, including sailing, fishing, and kayaking. Spend the day paddling around Saysutshun, or get out on a charter to become the next great angler. Take your adventure to new depths on a snorkeling or scuba diving expedition.

You don’t have to travel more than 10-15 minutes to be on a body of water. You can be out on the ocean fishing in 15-20 minutes, or you can be out on Long Lake fishing for trout bass.
