This is some of the best cold water scuba diving in the world so said legendary ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, as well as many other available current reviews.
Amazing scenery and marine life abound and it’s all local.
The amount of life and colour to be seen for those of you who are not familiar with west coast diving will pleasantly surprise you.
Many of the dives also have good to excellent shore access, and are really great dives, not to mention the price is right.
By the way, shore diving is great! call up a buddy, load your gear and go. How good, and easy is that!
Nanaimo’s Artificial reefs and high current dives are just some of the spectacular highlights you will encounter.
Nanaimo boasts two artificial reefs, by way of ship wrecks (the H.M.C.S. Saskatchewan and the H.M.C.S. Cape Breton) just outside of departure bay that are both must do dives that are quite spectacular.
As far as current dives go there are many that are tried and tested in the waters surrounding Vancouver Island.
Nanaimo also boasts the Rivtow Lion, (a purpose sunk wreck right in Departure Bay) that is a perfect dive for the newly certified.
This artificial reef is also in sheltered waters and can be accessed
anytime day or night.
