Dave and Marlene warmly welcome you to The Buccaneer Inn. Enjoy our legendary hospitality, comfy accommodation and wide range of amenities. We're your home away from home on Vancouver Island.

Our cozy, quaint motel is in an excellent location on Stewart Avenue in an urban, seaside, working harbour neighbourhood across from Newcastle Channel and the Harbourside Walkway in Nanaimo.

Sit back and 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 beautiful natural scenery. Our very pleasant climate, considered to be the mildest in Canada, makes Nanaimo a natural year-round playground.

Experience hundreds of kilometres of mountain bike and hiking trails to countless sea and lake side parks.

Throughout the year there are many festivals and events that help define Nanaimo. Our annual World Championship Bathtub Race and Marine Festival is a unique event that dares brave souls to race bathtubs out of Nanaimo Harbour to the Winchelsea Islands and back.
