Get access to British Columbia's best dive sites with this 5-hour boat trip from Horseshoe Bay. Choose to dive or simply ride along to enjoy the mountain scenery. Divers will see pinnacles, canyons, sponge bioherms, wolf eels, Pacific Octopus, and seals that make their home in Howe Sound. 

Please note: There is a possibility of cancellation after confirmation if there are not enough passengers to meet requirements.
What to Expect
Arrive at the Expedition Center on Horseshoe Bay 30 minutes prior to your boat's departure. Unload all your gear and get set up before boarding the boat; gear rental is also available. This tour is suitable for all levels of certified divers, or you can choose the 'ride-along only' option if you'd simply like to explore the scenery of Howe Sound from the boat's deck. If you're a solo traveler, don't worry about finding a buddy: We can provide a qualified Divemaster on request. 

Board the Topsail, a 40-foot (12-meter) vessel made for diving and equipped with a large dive platform, an on-board compressor, a viewing deck, a heated cabin, and a marine toilet. 

Once you reach Howe Sound, get to exploring the underwater world, including Vancouver's first artificial reef, the HMCS Annapolis. You'll also encounter seals, Pacific octopus, wolf eels, nudibranches, and other sea life. 

Back on the boat, warm up with hot soup or tea before heading back to Horseshoe Bay.

Beautiful diving in Howe Sound

The Sea Dragon experience is a winner! I only had one day to dive on a business trip, so it was mid-week or not at all. I wasn't sure we'd be able to dive mid-week due to lack of interest, but Sea Dragon was able...More

Ok, that includes a little deco time but on my latest visit to DDH-265, a Helicopter Carrying Destroyer, was lots of fun. This artificial reef has been in Halkett Bay since April 2015 so a lot of marine life is just getting started but I...More
