British Columbia is widely recognized as the #1 dive
destination in North America.
The waters around Hornby Island are full of a rich
variety of marine life. In any season, you can encounter Giant Pacific
octopus, wolf eels, harbour seals, large ling cod and rock fish,
colourful anemones and nudibranchs.
In winter, Steller's and California sea lions gather in the area to feed on huge schools of herring. Their underwater acrobatics are a treat to watch.
Good visibility and gentle currents make the Hornby
Island area easy to dive. Drift dives, wall dives, deep dives, and
sculpted sandstone reefs are all part of the underwater terrain.
