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.Read More
