PADI Advanced Certification (or equivalent)
We will be doing drift dives, so divers must be comfortable in current and must have recent cold water diving experience, and have completed a dive within the last year. We offer refresher courses weekly to get you caught up!
Something come up and need to postpone your dive? No problem! This trip has a 30 day cancellation policy, as we do fill up quickly so we’d like to have time to fill your spot.
If a trip is cancelled within this time period, and we are able to fill your spot, a full credit will be applied to your account. Otherwise, all money paid will be forfeited.
Unfortunately we do not offer refunds, but we would be happy to move you to a different date or offer you an in-store credit.
Come join us for a spectacular weekend of diving and sight seeing. This unique trip combines the best of underwater and topside experience that BC has to offer!
We’ll be diving around Quadra Island, which has some of the best coldwater diving in the world! The current carries a huge amount of nutrients through the water, which makes everything bigger, brighter, and more plentiful! Fields of strawberry anemones cover the rocks, schools of sardines and smaller fish hang out in the shallows, and if you’re a macro lover, you will find just about every species of nudibranch there we have in BC. Prepare to have your mind blown!
One of the other attraction to Campbell River is the large population of whales! Humpbacks, and orca are frequently seen in the area, as well as the usual seals, sea lions, bald eagles and porpoises. Come enjoy great diving and encounter wildlife above and below the surface!
Our home base for the weekend will be at Brown’s Bay Resort- one of BC’s best kept secrets! We’ll be taking over a few of their “Cliffside Glamping Tents” for the weekend. A perfect combination of nature, with all the amenities of home. Each tent has 3 beds, full power, comfortable beds, a beautiful lounge area, BBQ, large dining table, and basic kitchen amenities to get you through the weekend!
