PICES 2013 Annual Meeting
Communicating forecasts, uncertainty and consequences of
ecosystem change
October 11–20, Nanaimo, BC, Canada

Nanaimo is on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island, about a 2-hour drive north of Victoria.  The Nanaimo Airport (airport code:  YCD) is about 18 km south of Nanaimo’s city core.  The closest large international airport is Vancouver (airport code:  YVR) which serves 5-7 daily connections to Nanaimo (~20-minute flight).  It takes about 20 minutes to get from the airport to the city center by taxi (~$35) or shuttle bus ($26, cheaper if group is from 3 people and up).  There are two car ferry routes between Vancouver and Nanaimo (BC Ferries:  Tsawwassen to Duke Point or Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay).  There is also seaplane service (Westcoast Air/Harbour Air) from Vancouver Harbour downtown and the Vancouver Airport (transfer from air terminal to river terminal) to Nanaimo Harbour. (Please note that seaplanes have a small luggage limit.)
