I have updated the page for Protection Island with relevant links for services and a commentary about life on Protection Island.
While only 5 minutes from downtown Nanaimo, Protection Island is a world apart.
Very rural in atmosphere, yet having all the city services.
Protection Island has Nanaimo City water and sewers, fire hydrants and high speed internet and TV with both Telus and Shaw.
The ferry runs every hour.
There is a wonderful community spirit with a community garden and a community dock.
There are many activities that make Protection Island a great place to raise kids and live a special lifestyle.
