It’s not too late to take a nautical trip down memory lane aboard the SS Minnow.
The vessel, made famous by the 1960s TV hit, Gilligan’s Island, is owned by Quality Foods’ Ken Schley, who has offered a chance for four lucky castaways to go on a three-hour tour of Nanaimo Harbour in a bid to raise money for the Oceanside Hospice Society.
More than just a boat trip, the tour will see the winning bidder of the silent auction join Capt. Schley on the adventure while sampling gourmet foods and fine wines.
Bidding, which starts at $2,000, has been extended to Aug. 12. For more information, please call 250- 752-6227.
