The Dives

Whether you’re new to the area or just in need of a dive buddy, Salish Sea Dive can take you on a variety of shore dives.  Boat charters can be arranged with a minimum of a group of four.
 

dive-1Mermaid Cove

One of our favorite places to dive.  Perfect for all skill levels.  It was a beautiful spot to dive and THEN the “Emerald Princess” was added to make it even better!  She stand 3m (9Feet) and beckons you to visit! Full of life and amazing rock formations make this a “Must See” dive.  Those of you who don’t dive can enjoy on of the prettiest areas in the world!  You can even camp at the site at the Saltery Bay Provincial Campground!  Perfect spot!

Wreck of the Malahat, Seconds Beach

 
A leisurely underwater stroll along the breakwater will show off an aquarium-like dive.  The T.V. show “Wreck Hunters” put a plaque to commemorate the Mystery Ship “Malahat”.  She lies between 35 and 70′ of water.  Big water tanks at the deep end and quite often our friend “Alex” the Wolf Eel is there!  Easy access and close to town for lunch or dinner afterwards!
 

Lots more dives are available to us by boat which can be arranged with a little notice.  The “Iron Mines” (One of my favorites), the wreck of the Hummingbird and nearby Chemainus, the amazing “Gulf Stream” for you more technical divers are all accessible from Lund, home of the sinful blackberry cinnamon buns at the world famous Nancy’s Bakery!
