going to dive with?
For the past 13 years, The Buccaneer
Inn has hosted many of the thousands of divers coming to dive in our beautiful waters. For more information on diving in Nanaimo contact Sundown Diving or call them at 1-888-773-3483. Please note that at The Buccaneer Inn we no longer directly sell dive packages however we will gladly offer you diver-friendly accommodation!
So what makes us the most popular hotel, motel or guesthouse to stay at while diving in Nanaimo?
Our diver specific amenities are second to none. We offer 2 heated, indoor, secure dry rooms, outdoor rinse station and an after-checkout shower.
Our location is outstanding. We're directly across from Sundown Diving's and the Harbourside Walkway with great ocean views of Newcastle Channel. Across from us
are 5 restaurants and pubs including waterfront
dining. We have a complimentary BBQ on our group
meeting deck. If you'd like to have a get together in one suite,
our Deluxe Oceanview Fireplace Suite doubles as a large meeting
room! (surcharge applies).
Our communitys dedication
to becoming the worlds 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.
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!
