Get access to British Columbia's best dive sites with this 5-hour boat trip from Horseshoe Bay. Choose to dive or simply ride along to enjoy the mountain scenery. Divers will see pinnacles, canyons, sponge bioherms, wolf eels, Pacific Octopus, and seals that make their home in Howe Sound. 

Please note: There is a possibility of cancellation after confirmation if there are not enough passengers to meet requirements.
What to Expect
Arrive at the Expedition Center on Horseshoe Bay 30 minutes prior to your boat's departure. Unload all your gear and get set up before boarding the boat; gear rental is also available. This tour is suitable for all levels of certified divers, or you can choose the 'ride-along only' option if you'd simply like to explore the scenery of Howe Sound from the boat's deck. If you're a solo traveler, don't worry about finding a buddy: We can provide a qualified Divemaster on request. 

Board the Topsail, a 40-foot (12-meter) vessel made for diving and equipped with a large dive platform, an on-board compressor, a viewing deck, a heated cabin, and a marine toilet. 

Once you reach Howe Sound, get to exploring the underwater world, including Vancouver's first artificial reef, the HMCS Annapolis. You'll also encounter seals, Pacific octopus, wolf eels, nudibranches, and other sea life. 

Back on the boat, warm up with hot soup or tea before heading back to Horseshoe Bay.

Fun and productive photo shoot at Sponge Bob site, the unique glass sponge bioherm in Howe Sound. We're happy to hear that this critical habitat is slated for protected status. Thank you!
