British Columbia is a beacon to scuba divers and ocean explorers. Attracting visitors from all over the world, eager to dive beneath our waves. But what is the appeal? It’s just cold and dark down there right? Wrong!
As we like to say and compare – those huge mountains you see around BC, they don’t stop at the water line, they keep going. And like any forest covered mountain, they’re full of life.
BC’s high currents and tidal exchanges (some of the world’s biggest and most powerful), move vast volumes of water along our coastline, bringing with it lots of nutrients that are essential for marine life.
Simply put, are waters are nutrient rich, clear (beautifully clear in the winter time), and perfect for an abundance of diverse marine life. From Vancouver, to Victoria, all the way up to the coast to BC’s to Campbell River and Port Hardy, an explosion of colour, marine life, and incredible encounters await.
But don’t take our word for it, watch the video above – all filmed in British Columbia!
