Up-close & Personal With a Wolf Eel!

Our community’s dedication to becoming the world’s most popular temperate water dive destination is evident throughout Nanaimo. Future plans include Marine Parks, wolf eel den enhancements, park developments which will include shore-side diver-friendly facilities, mooring buoy program and the addition of more artificial reefs. 

Giant Pacific Octopus! Or why not stay another day and go Bungy Jumping in Nanaimo, whale-watching in Tofino or skiing at Mt. Washington? There are lots of other great eco-adventure opportunities while you are on Vancouver Island: the Island Conde Naste voted the best non-tropical Island in the World. Not interested in a charter package, why not try some of our excellent shore diving opportunities. Divers from around the globe go to Madrona Point, near Parksville to see Giant Pacific Octopus or go to Neck Point to see the resident Wolf Eels. There are lots of other excellent shore diving opportunities in Nanaimo and on Vancouver Island!

We look forward to welcoming you to The Buccaneer Inn and the start of one of the world's great dive adventures!

Your hosts,
