A good way to survive the wet season in Nanaimo is to hang out at the Aquatic Centre on the corner of Third St and Wakesiah Ave, near Vancouver Island University. The center has a gym and a great pool, with a children's water playground, a river, waves, and waterslides. There are also a steamroom, sauna, hottub, and an Olympic sized pool.
