Personal attention from the owners and small staff is the first thing you notice about the Hornby Island Diving Lodge. Good meals are provided for the small dive group and are timed around the diving schedule. The small dive groups and short boat rides maximise the diving experience. The boat is designed for this type of diving. Nitrox is avalible.... More

Hornby Island is a beautiful place. It is quiet, remote, easy paced and Hornby Diving has built a beautiful, functional dive boat. The food is plentiful and good although certainly not four- five star. The accomdations are clean, but very basic/small dorm-like. I am sure this revue will be seen as an outlyer but we are not warm and fuzzy... More

We are very sorry that your visit to Hornby Island Diving was disappointing. It sounds like it was not satisfactory to you on many levels. While many of our guests enjoy sharing meals with us, it is completely understandable that some may want more privacy. We will review our policy of eating with our guests. We are sorry that the...

I loved my stay at the Hornby Island Diving Lodge. I was there for 4 days as part of a Photography Course. The scenery is incredible and life is a slower pace. It is peaceful and you can take time to reflect and breathe. The lodge itself is so cozy and comfy and felt like a home. It was very... More

I recently stayed at the Honby Island Diving Lodge while on a photography course on the island. There were 15 of us and Amanda and Rob made us feel so welcome. A beautiful lodge with a nautical feel. A number of bedrooms upstairs and down were very comfortable. I love the cozy duvet! A large common area upstairs along with... More

Wow. A hidden jewel. Good hospitality, good food, good accomodations and of course Hornby Island and all its splendour allowed our photography group to spend four wonderful days. A little rain at times but hey, this is the "wet coast". :) Thank you to Amanda and Rob.

We recently hosted an education photo workshop here and were wowed! The facility was perfect for our group lessons/meetings, with both spaces outside and upstairs that worked well. Our participants found the rooms comfortable and the eating area was perfect for socializing, relaxing and of course, eating the great food. Rob, Amanda and their staff accommodate numerous dietary requirements while... More

I recently made my third trip to Hornby Island, all were to dive with Amanda & Rob at Hornby Island Diving. This is truly a magical place with a calming, soul soothing vibe that runs like a peaceful current from land to sea. In my opinion the diving is technical, this is big water, cold, deep and occasionally dark. The... More

Hornby Island Diving is in my opinion the best scuba dive lodge in Canada BC. The dive is big and spacious. There are many different places to hang and talk with your fellow divers, so even with big groups you have enough room even if the weather is bad. The bedrooms are nice and clean. The food is excellent. The... More

I travel to Hornby Island Dive Lodge at least once a year. Rob and Amanda are the most gracious hosts you will come across. You quickly feel that you are more like family than guests. The home style food is great. Rob and Amanda run a fantastic dive operation with numerous dive sites typically located no more than a 10... More
