Nanaimo Harbour

Our terminal is situated at Pioneer Waterfront Plaza in the heart of Nanaimo Harbour. The waterfront terminal sits directly across from the Lighthouse Bistro and beside stores, cafes and Harbour Air’s own The Hangar Boutique featuring unique aviation-themed gifts, clothing and collectables! Nanaimo, also known as the “Harbour City” is home to one of the longest shorelines in Canada. Jutting out into the Strait of Georgia, this classic West Coast community offers spectacular ocean views and a forested mountain backdrop just outside downtown.
