Tour description provided by Viator

Are you interested in scuba diving in British Columbia and the Pacific North West? Then you've come to the right place! Wall diving, pinnacles, canyons, seals, drifts, sponge bioherms, aritfical reefs, and stunning ocean and mountain scenery - explore it all on this 5-Hour boat diving adventure! Head to Horseshoe Bay and take the customized boat Topline out to explore the emerald waters of Howe Sound where you can commonly see Pacific octopus, wolf eels, nudibrachs, and beautifully bizarre fish such as the decorated warbonnet and the grunt sculpin.Please note: There is a possibility of cancellation after confirmation if there are not enough passengers to meet requirements. There is a 'ride along only' option for those who wish to hop onboard and not dive. Please contact directly for more info.
British Columbia has some of the best diving in the world. Its nutrient rich waters and amazing topography make for stunning diving. You'll encounter a diversity of marine life divers in the Pacific North West, and see Vancouver's first artificial reef - the HMCS Annapolis!Explore Howe Sound on Topline, a 40-foot vessel specifically customized for divers. This includes an on-board compressor, marine toilet, large dive platform, and topside viewing deck - all of which make a diver's trip comfortable and hassle-free. Spend more time diving and less time lugging gear to shore! You'll also receive hot soup (or tea) on your surface interval and be able to warm up in Topline's heated cabin between dives. Talk about value-added! This tour accommodates all levels of certified divers - recreational, technical, re-breather, photographers, free-divers, and more. Gear rental is available and your tour operator can provide a qualified Divemaster upon request. No need to worry about finding a buddy! Not a scuba diver? Choose the 'ride-along only' option to hop on board with a friend. Alternative, choose an incredible Sea Life Cruise that allows non-divers to soak up the scenery and see the beauty of British Columbia from a unique perspective, including snorkeling and kayaking with seals!Please Note: Dive trips average 4-5 hours in duration. Dive sites may vary due to group abilities and environmental conditions, at the Captain's discretion. Please advise at time of booking of any special equipment requirements.
