The Harbour City - Nanaimo, BC

Known as the "The Harbour City", Nanaimo is now a quickly growing city due to the housing market in Vancouver and Victoria becoming unreachable to a lot of home buyers.  Nanaimo is located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, which is separated by the Strait of Georgia.  Previously known as the Hub City, Nanaimo is connected to Victoria to the south by 110 km, Campbell River, Comox Valley, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and Nanoose to the north.  

Vancouver Island is linked to Vancouver via the BC Ferries terminal in Horseshoe Bay at West Vancouver, and Departure Bay in Nanaimo, which is a 1 hour and 40-minute sailing across the beautiful Strait of Georgia.  In 2017 a total of 3,381,076 passengers used the ferry to travel from Horseshoe Bay, and Departure Bay, with the peak season, is obviously in the summer months when everyone is vacationing on and off Vancouver Island.
