On a warm summer night there is nothing like boarding the Protection Island ferry to venture over to the Dinghy Dock Pub. North America’s only floating pub is situated on Protection Island in Nanaimo’s harbour. The Dinghy Dock is a favourite among locals and tourists, not only is their new menu full of delicious fresh local seafood but it is an absolute experience to dine on the ocean. I’m a seafood lover, so their menu is my perfect restaurant menu however, they do offer a number of non-seafood items and most tourists I send over to the pub rave about their steak sandwich. They also offer a family friendly section (accompanied by a hole in the dock for the kiddies to fish from) so the kids can enjoy the Dinghy Dock experience as well. It’s a great place for good food, a good pint, and great atmosphere! Click here for more details on a must do dining experience.
