Pender Ferry: Pender Island, BC
Pender Island is served by BC Ferries 2x a day to Vancouver and 7x a day from Victoria, float planes and commercial boats.
With a sub-Mediterranean climate, North and South Pender Island are the perfect choice for family vacations.
From kayak rentals and Eco excursions, to the Sea Star Vineyard or Twin Island Cider Tasting Room; from golfing at the Pender Island Golf & Country Club to simply sitting quietly and appreciating natures' beauty, the Island is a must visit.
Nanaimo accommodations are plentiful both in the city core and the surrounding area but for the more popular hotels and B&Bs (shown on the left), advance reservations are an absolute must.
