We had a great time and the diving was great. Annie & Bill work really hard to make sure everyone is having a good time. The drive up from Victoria took about 6 hours but we did stop along the way. We were picked up at the dock and taken across to God's Pocket.

Incredible cold water diving! Every bit of surface has life on it. We saw free swimming octopi, wolf eels, Puget Sound King Crab, many different nudibranchs, anemones, and sea lions played with us in the water...magical! Dive boat and crew are fantastic! Accommodations very comfortable, comfortable bed, private bathroom, heated floor. Family style meals are delicious! Marked trails on the...

We have been virtually travelling the world to scuba dive and heard of God's Pocket by coincidense and wanted to try it out. It was way beyond expectations, when we had been there for 3 hours, we felt part of the family and literally "at home". Fantastic diving, great food - three home cooked meals a day, very cosy accomodation...

To be able to get away from it all and hide in a corner of the world still untouched by human greed. God's Pocket is not only a natural gem, tucked away amongst the islands of the northern Vancouver Island coast, it is also one of the world's best diving spots. Period. Add to this incredibly knowledgeable and service-oriented staff,...

God's Pocket is not just the best of northwest BC diving but, also staffed by people that make the trip just so remarkable. Everyone at God's Pocket is the best at what they do. The cook created three outstanding meals each day from a kitchen that's basically in the wilderness. The owners show their love of their jobs through every...

I have been lucky to have had the opportunity to dive all over the world. I have always thought that places like Galapagos and French Polynesia were the ultimate destinations until I dove God's Pocket. The coldwater diving offers critters and colourful coral. We were lucky enough to see Giant Pacific Octopus and Wolf Eels. God's Pocket resort is run...

God's Pocket Diving Resort is everything they say it is plus more. A high quality operation that matches the world class diving that surrounds it all carried off by thoughtful attentive staff.

This is cold water diving at it's best. The sites are beautiful! The boat has an elevator! The rooms are really clean and comfortable, and the food is plentiful and excellent. The hosts Annie and Bill are super friendly and helpful. Can't say enough good things.

Unbelievable. A quaint, charming, comfortable, incredibly well-maintained place in a gorgeous remote setting, run by two of the most amazing and friendly people you'll ever meet. Amazing food (how she does what she does in that little kitchen we'll never know). Beautiful hiking trails, wildlife, sea creatures, it's all there. It really doesn't get much better than this.
