Cut from the coastal mountains by glaciers millions of years ago, the fjords of Canada’s Inside Passage feature spectacular coastal rainforests, beaches, waterfalls and mountains for over a century. Over 25,000 miles of rugged coastline lie in the Inside Passage, joining Alaska’s inside waters, linking the cities of Victoria, Vancouver, Nanaimo and Prince Rupert en route. Nanaimo is a Canadian Customs clearance point for all northbound Kenmore Air flights to Inside Passage destinations.
Nanaimo gets its identity, history and a wealth of recreation from a lovely, island-sheltered harbor right in the heart of town. The city is a classic west coast community, offering natural beauty and recreation at every turn. Located on the east coast of Vancouver Island 113 km (about 70 miles) north of Victoria, Nanaimo delivers a lively and unique urban experience as well as hiking, boating, kayaking, biking, world-class scuba diving and snorkeling on the bustling waterfront.
