The Buccaneer Inn is in an excellent location! We are located on Stewart Avenue in an urban, seaside, working harbour neighbourhood across from the beautiful waters of Newcastle Channel and the Harbourside Walkway in Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island!

Sit back and enjoy the marine life and views of Newcastle Channel, Departure Bay and Newcastle Island Provincial Park. Watch the variety of boats sailing and motoring by. Listen to the drumbeats of the Dragonboaters as they maneuver through the Channel. Take a walk along the Seawall and see if you can find your dream boat at Stones Marina! Watch the morning sunrise, our resident bald eagles fish in the Channel, the ferry coming and going, floatplanes taking off and landing, boats navigating the Channel or dragonboaters paddling by.

Nanaimo is home to some of the world's most beautiful natural scenery. Our very pleasant climate, considered to be the mildest in Canada, makes this a natural year-round playground

Enjoy some of the 2700 acres of parkland that Nanaimo has preserved. Piper's Lagoon Park off of Hammond Bay Road is a beautiful beach to view the Coast Mountain Range, Mount Baker in Washington State and the Strait of Georgia from.

On the third week of every July is our world famous, World Championship Bathtub Race and Marine Festival. This unique event was started over 35 years ago right here in our fair city. Now a Nanaimo to Nanaimo event, daring tubbers race their real bathtubs out of Nanaimo Harbour to the Winchelsea Islands and back to Departure Bay. Boat design rules are quite stringent and flotation devices are not allowed. If the bathtub motor stops, the boat doesn't float!

Come stay with us and enjoy everything we have to offer!
