SCUBA in Victoria: Any good? Hot Spots? Suggestions?

We plan on diving while in Victoria. Is Ogden point good? Or should we get a boat and head to Race Rocks? Or should we just head somewhere else ? We want the best Canadian dive spot within the area. We are both certified and looking for suggestions. Also, what is the visibility like normally? What are cool things that we will likely see? Is it different than Oregon diving? How so?

Thanks

Hey Mancans:

I've never dived before, but I lived in Victoria for 11 years and heard of amazings sights and scenery. In fact, the city of Sidney (I hope I am correct on this info I am giving you!) which is 30 min drive north of Victoria, scuttled a decomissioned Navy frigate to create an undersea - and sorry, I forget the term/word used...? I would contact Frank White's Scuba Shop located in Victoria for more info. I remember they were the most reputable shop in town. Good luck! BP
