Why dive on vancouver island?
Vancouver Island scuba diving is known as some of the most colourful and diverse on the planet. Come face to face with a giant pacific octopus, seals, sea lions, or maybe even a pair of mated wolf eels. If that’s not enough, you can drift along the beautiful reefs or explore one of the many historic shipwrecks. See why Jacques Cousteau rated this region one of the best in the world!
