Vancouver Island



Scuba diver

Vancouver Island offers some of the greatest diversity of marine life in North America and an abundance of spectacular dive sites.

Dive historic shipwrecks, man-made artificial and natural reefs, pinnacles and walls thriving with life. See huge cloud sponges, giant Pacific octopus and wolf eels, and watch for giant six-gill sharks. Some popular places to dive include Barkley Sound on the west coast, Browning Wall near Port Hardy, and Discovery Pass near Campbell River.

Dive charters, lodges and dive boats operate year-round, with the best diving conditions occurring during fall and winter months when visibility can exceed 30m/100ft.
