Scuba Diving magazine ranked British Columbia's waters as offering the best diving in North America. Diving in BC was also named to National Geographic's 2014 Ultimate Adventure Bucket List.

The Jacques Cousteau Society rated British Columbia second only to the Red Sea for clarity and diversity of marine life. Dive sites in BC include famous walls and reefs, current-swept passages, ghostly shipwrecks and unique artificial reefs.

The variety, abundance and colours of BC's ocean life will amaze: giant Pacific octopus, fierce-looking wolf eels, schools of rockfish, colourful nudibranchs and anemones, elegant coral and giant sponge formations are common sights.

Shore-accessed dive sites in Victoria and Vancouver provide an easy and safe introduction to BC diving. On Vancouver Island the wall dives in Browning Pass near Port Hardy are ranked the best in North America. Divers on the Sunshine Coast will find the emerald-coloured waters around Powell River and Skookumchuck Narrows teeming with life.
