Welcome to the Dock

Welcome to the Dock WindowThe Dinghy Dock Pub & Restaurant has been an attraction in Nanaimo, British Columbia since 1989. The expansive views, relaxed atmosphere and great pub fare make us a popular destination year round. We are the only registered floating pub in Canada making your experience a unique one. We're lucky to be situated just off beautiful Protection Island originally known as Douglas Island. Walking the rock beaches, visiting the parks or viewing the heron rookery can be a memorable part of your visit. Whether you arrive on the Protection Island Ferry, private boat or kayak it's our goal to make your trip to the Dinghy Dock and Protection Island a memorable one!
