Next to Gabriola, right in the Nanaimo Harbour is a small island called Protection Island. Known to most locals as the home of the Dingy Dock Pub, Protection has roads but no bridge and no car ferry. Residents of this jewel of an island commute to Nanaimo via personal watercraft or the little passenger ferry that leave the fishing docks in the harbour every hour. Transportation on the island is a combination of walking, bicycles, golf carts and a few old cars and pickup trucks. Anything that will not fit on the small ferry can be barged over. Many of these properties are affordable waterfront.

Testimonials

Love Real Estate Group proved an invaluable help when helping us through the maze of buying a new home, especially when for us it was our 1st home in a new country. No problem was too big and their fun approachable demeanours meant that the whole process was a lot less stressful than it might’ve otherwise been.

Julie & Stuart Ockelford

We really appreciated Lisa’s help finding the perfect condo for us in Nanaimo. Lisa was a pleasure to work with, responding promptly, cheerfully and efficiently to even the smallest request. She worked tirelessly to get us familiar with different neighbourhoods and to consider different options. Even after the sale was completed successfully – which she facilitated professionally and expeditiously – she was always available to help. Working with Lisa was a great experience.
