Vancouver Island is known for having some of the best and most diverse diving in the world. Come join us on our “variety” trip to see just what diving in the Pacific Northwest has to offer!
We’ll be doing three boat dives out of Nanaimo which is known for it’s wrecks, such as the HMCS Saskatchewan and Cape Breton, and walls like Snake Island. You’ll not only be able to see some of the most incredible artificial shipwrecks, but you’ll also have the chance to find some of the amazing critters that live down there. We regularly find Giant Pacific Octopus, Wolf Eels, decorated warbonnets, cabezons, ling cod, and so much more!
The trip is then wrapped up with two incredible boat dives with the sea lions at Hornby Island! Ask anyone who has been diving with these animals, and they will tell you it’s a one-of-a-kind dive and one of the coolest experiences you can have.
