If you’re in the Nanaimo area this is definitely a fun little day trip! Took the water taxi over and spent the day exploring. Trails are well marked and the people running the water taxi will supply you with a map. I went in the off season so it wasn’t as busy, I didn’t see a single person until I walked back to the dock. I will say there is a lot of raccoons on this island, at one of the cliffs I could see about 7 of them down at the beach so be careful as they are aggressive in packs.
