Sea Dragon Boat Trips

Wall diving, pinnacles, canyons, seals, drifts, unique sponge bio herms, artificial reefs, and stunning ocean and mountain scenery – explore it all on our 5-Hour boat dive trip! Head to Horseshoe Bay and join us on the Topline to explore the emerald waters of Howe Sound. Here you can commonly see Pacific octopus, wolf eels, nudibrachs, and beautifully bizarre fish such as the decorated warbonnet and grunt sculpin.

You will do two amazing dives off the 40 ft long Topline. The topline has lots of room for gearing up, a large platform for entries and exits, and a roomy interior to warm up in between dives on chilly days.  The dive sites are decided the day of, depending on conditions, and diver experience levels.

Trip Highlights:

  • Two beautiful boat dives in the Pacific Northwest
  • Professional and experienced staff, no dive buddy? no problem!
  • Fully customized vessel with heated cabin, marine head, and compressor on board
  • Local area knowledge
  • Hot drinks and snacks included

Although the difficulty level of the dive sites will be tailored to the divers, the trip itself is geared towards self-sufficient divers who have mastered their buoyancy control. The guide is there to provide surface support with any gear issues, provide a site briefing and lead the dives for those that would like to follow. Divers who haven’t quite mastered their buoyancy in the cold water or who require some extra attention and support are recommended to start with one of our Local Safari’s.

All of our equipment packages include a Suit, Hood, BCD, & Regulator.
