Snorkeling With Seals
British Columbia Field Reporter Chris Wheeler snorkels with the seals in Nanaimo located on Vancouver Island! This is on the top of the list of outdoor eco-adventures in Nanaimo. You take a 15 minute boat ride from Nanaimo harbour to Snake Island which is home to a bunch of friendly harbour seals!
Newcastle Island is the jewel of Nanaimo
British Columbia Field Reporter Chris Wheeler takes the “pickle boat” and has a stroll on the sandstone beaches of Newcastle Island. Rich in natural and cultural history, Newcastle is a fascinating BC Provincial Park that has many activities to check out! From the moment you step off the dock, you start to feel a unique vibe of both relaxation and awe… and it’s a great place to catch some rays and have a nap!
WildPlay Bungee Jump
The Harbour City Nanaimo in the Vancouver Island region is home to the first bungee jumping operation – WildPlay Element Park – in North America. BC Field Reporter Chris Wheeler hits the zipline and throws himself off a 140 foot bridge during his first time Bungee Jump… what a rush! Also featured on Wildplay’s Homepage
Dinghy Dock Pub
The only floating pub in Canada! When visiting Nanaimo, you have to check out the Dinghy Dock Pub on Protection Island. British Columbia Field Reporter Chris Wheeler takes a ferry ride to this floating pub and samples the seafood, talks to “Molly” the parrot and jives to a live band. What a place to enjoy an evening brew and watch the sunset… just watch out for pirates!
