POSSIBLE DIVE SITES:

DEPENDING ON CONDITIONS

HMCS SASKATCHEWAN

The 366 ft. HMCS Saskatchewan was scuttled in 1997 as the first artificial reef in the Nanaimo area. She sits in 130 ft. of water with her main deck at 80-90 ft. and is home to a variety of sealife including giant plumose anemonies, lingcod, cabezon, wolfeels, cloud sponges, along with a myriad of smaller marine life.


HMCS CAPE BRETON

The 411 ft. HMCS Cape Breton was scuttled in 2001 as the second artificial reef in the Nanaimo area. She sits in 145 ft. of water (minus a bit of the stern section) with her main deck at 100 ft. She is a short distance away from the HMCS Saskatchewan, just off the shore of Snake Island and is home to a wide variety of marine life.


CLARK ROCK

Clark Rock is a reef at a lighthouse a short distance out from the beach at Pipers Lagoon. The max depth of this dive is 60 ft. so it is good for all level of divers. The attraction for this site is variety of marine life including wolfeels, octopus, rockfish, lingcod, sea urchins, nudibranchs, and sculpins galore.


SNAKE ISLAND

Newer divers can explore the upper edges of the wall at 60 ft. looking for buffalo sculpins, grunt sculpins, plumose anemonies, octopus, rockfish, and more. More experienced divers can explore the deeper depths with overhangs housing plumose anemonies, cloud, and boot sponges.
