Nanaimo: Day Tripper

  

Overview

Nanaimo has it all. The second biggest city on Vancouver Island, and just minutes away from the virtually untouched wilderness, Nanaimo provides an easy starting point for a fun day of fishing. Fish right from the city shore while watching the ferries go by, or take a short boat ride to the waters around Five Finger or Gabriola Island and drop your line.
