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

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.

Throughout our experience working with Marie, she demonstrated her integrity time and again through her dealings with us and with other realtors. Throughout the process of looking for and purchasing our new home, she was patient, understanding, and an absolute pleasure to work with. We have come to trust her completely and we would highly recommend her to anyone.
