Port McNeill

At Browning Wall, a rainbow selection of corals, anemones, sponges, urchins, and starfish cling to what awestruck divers describe as a classic “deep drop-off wall.” Rockfish, king crabs, and the rare octopus also make their homes here. Hunt Rock lets divers explore two stone pinnacles hidden just below the surface of the waves. Tidal conditions make this a challenging dive, but the rewards include sightings of wolf eels, lingcod, and multiple varieties of rockfish. Right in Port Hardy Harbour and within easy access of town, 5 Fathom Rock is famous for its colorful population of China, tiger and black rockfish – so much so that in 2007 Fisheries and Oceans Canada officially designated it as a Rockfish Conservation Area.
