Ahoy Guesthouse on Protection Island is your home away from home. Located on one of British Columbia’s smallest gulf islands, we offer you the kind of peace and relaxation that rejuvenates the soul. The guesthouse is surrounded by beautiful rainforest and boasts one of the best beach access points just across the road. You reach Ahoy Guesthouse by enjoying a ten minute ride on a quaint foot passenger ferry from downtown Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, followed by a scenic 10 minute walk on our quiet gravel roads. While you are here, enjoy the floating pub, visit island landmarks, see wildlife up close, and relax in comfort.
