Rendezvous Diving - Barkley Sound

February 18-21, 2018

Level of Diving

Diving will be in cold water off of a boat. Minimum 7mm wetsuit or drysuit is required. This trip is for divers with recent cold water diving experience who hold an SDI Advanced Diver rating (or equivalent). Several dives will be in water 80-110 fsw.

Destination

Jacques Cousteau famously proclaimed the emerald waters of British Columbia as “the best temperate water diving in the world and second only to the Red Sea”. British Columbia is chosen as one of the top diving destinations in North America year after year. The diversity of life, the health of the marine environment, and the breath-taking topside attractions make it a popular destination for scuba divers.

Barkley Sound is roughly a big bite taken out of the West Coast of Vancouver island. In a triangle it is enclosed by Bamfield in the south, Ucluelet to the north and Port Alberni in the middle. Coming from Port Alberni and going south, you descend the Alberni inlet to where it meets the Barkley Sound. Inside, a maze of islands unfolds and offers a stunning landscape. The Broken Islands group in the west are part of the Pacific Rim National Park.

Barkley Sound offers a unique richness in both plants and animals. Underwater you will find a rich diversity of fish, invertebrates, marine mammals and kelp forests. Salmon, rock-fish, herring, squid, giant octopus, sea otters, seals, and sea lions are all permanent residents. Others like orca, grey- and humpback whales, Puget Sound King crab, sea pens, and six gill sharks add flavor to your dives and make your stay unforgettable. In the majestic forests you may find everything from beavers and otters, to bears, cougars, eagles and many more species. They form integrated eco-systems with the life in the water.

 

Dive Itinerary

The dive trip coincides with the Family Day long weekend. The Saturday and start of Sunday is reserved for travel time. Boat pickup in Port Alberni on Sunday at 4pm enroute to Rendezvous Dive Lodge. Diving will commence Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. Boat ride back to Port Alberni on Wednesday afternoon after diving is done.
