Mercury Cruise Ship Visits Nanaimo

The Mercury sits at anchor in the harbour off of Gallows Point under blue skies and light breezes.

One of several tenders shuttle visitors from the anchored Mercury to the wharf downtown in the inner harbour.

The extra traffic along the seawall didn't seem to bother this pooch as he waited faithfully for his master to finish his coffee.

A volunteer Nanaimo Information guide gives directions to one of our many guests to downtown.

Tourism Nanaimo meets and greets visitors from the Mercury on the seawall.

The crafter's market offered our visitors a wide variety of hand crafted wares which surely would be a pleasant memento of their visit to the Harbour City.

Passengers aboard the cruise ship Mercury couldn't have asked for a nicer day to visit Nanaimo. There was just enough of a breeze to make strolling along the waterfront or exploring downtown a pleasant time indeed.

A shuttle service provided our guests with tranportation from the seawall, and of course exploring downtown and the old city quarter on foot is an enjoyable way to spend a late September afternoon in our fair city.
