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

Second time I've been here and can't say enough about the top notch operation they run! Best dive operation, food, and accommodations a person could ask for! Thanks Bill & Annie, Shona, and Lyle for all the effort you put in to make such a memorable trip!

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. A short thirty minute ride to God’s Pocket Resort in which we say a dozen eagles, seals and a few sea... More

I have been diving for over 30 years and God's Pocket Resort is one of the best - and not just for cold water diving. The diving is the best on the west coast (in my opinion), and Bill and Annie have created a little piece of heaven in this resort. I have been diving in many exotic locations, and... More

It was for sure the best dive resort I've been to in the west coast. Excellent food and great staff with an awesome dive master. Elevator on the dive boat and they bent over backwards to make sure we had the time of our lives. I plan on going back every year. Great place and I will recommend it to... More

A brightly painted, hand crafted vision that immediately delights your senses as you round the corner to the resort. Each day I found hidden treasures that made me smile.Such an amazing variety of bird life and wildlife to entertain you each day as well. Warm heated floor lodgings with cosy bedding always clean(thanks Stacey ), warm fires in the evening,... More

I have been a cold water diver for 32 years. I have also been to many exotic destinations (Great Barrier Reef, Red Sea, Belize, Papau New Guinea, Fiji, Mexico) and I spend about half of the year diving close to home in my dry suit (Pacific Northwest). I have been trying to get to God's Pocket for the last decade.... More
