the staff took very good care of us. i was pampered beyond belief. three wonderful home cooked meals a day. heated floors and dive elevators. cold water diving can be very hard work but the staff keeps you going with all the creature comforts a diver could need.

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... More

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... More

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.

We had a self-supporting group of 13 who booked the entire resort for a kayak trip. We were very lucky to be welcomed by Lyle & Shona. Shona provided excellent food and a great personality. Lyle gave us perfect guidance on where to kayak, when to go and how to maximize the benefits of winds, currents and tides. The rooms... More

Called God's Pocket at 7:00am when we realized Cape Caution would be a rough crossing for our 43 ft trawler and a live voice actually answered the phone! There is dock space for only a couple of boats (45 ft or less) and anchorage in the bay. We were welcomed by the cook since the owners had a group out... More

I was one in a group of twelve divers from “Washington Diver’s, Bellingham WA”. We arrived at Port Hardy on May 8, 2015 for a week of diving. Bill was at the dock waiting for us when we arrived.
