Comments: This is the last day of our scuba diving circumnavigation of Vancouver Island and we are all sad that it is almost over. The good news is that we have 2 of these trips on the books for next year. I’ve always enjoyed our 6 night Port Hardy trips but these circumnav’s are even more fun. I’d like to start offering more of them in the future. Dive #1 was at West Race Wall at Race Rocks. Dropping the scuba divers off in a 25 knot westerly was a bit of a challenge especially considering that we are not allowed to drop the anchor and stabilize ourselves in the Marine Protected Area. Dive #2 was off the Ogden Point Breakwater with the Nautilus Explorer tied up in the Inner Harbour in front of the Empress Hotel. Wrapped the trip with a great dive on the artificial reef G.B. Church off Portland Island. It’s always sad when a trip is over but it was a good one with lots of terrific people and great memories. Cheers all.
Weather: Very strong westerlies in the morning and then easing, sunny skies, temps in the 70’s.
Water: 47°F. Visibility 20-25 feet
