Departure Bay Real Estate

The Departure Bay area is a beautiful oceanside neighbourhood, a bowl-shaped valley rising from a large beach. There are some funky old homes down by the beach, as well as some modest split-levels behind them, and a lot of semi-luxury to luxury homes perched around the shoreline and high on the rocky bluffs, with stunning ocean and mountain views.

Almost anyone who's been to Nanaimo will be familiar with Departure Bay as the large bay where the ferry arrives from Vancouver. But the ferry terminal is not in the residential area referred to as Departure Bay. (The ferry terminal is at the bottom of Brechin Hill.)
