I trust animals more than most people.
There are many walks in Nanaimo and most of them an chock full of wildlife. I love the birds, but then I’ve always had a thing for flight of any kind. Love it.
there are still resident killer whale pods in the waters around the island. It’s a real treat to be able to see them. If you’re lucky, you can see them from one of the ferries when making your way over to the island. It’s something you won’t soon forget.
