Hi to all,

I'm flying sometimes for work down to Portland and passing by Vancouver to return to Montreal. I would like to take a few days off and dive close to Vancouver since they say the dive there is awesome...

My questions are:

When is the best time to dive there to see good stuff (octopus,wolf eels, etc)?
where should I go to get the best sites?...I don't care to drive an hour or two to have the best dive..
Do you know any boat operator (or Dive shop that does boat trips) ?

If anyone of you is interested joining me on this trip and showing a tourist the best diving around I'd be more than happy to dive with you!

Thanks all of you for the info

PS: I'm certified Dry, Advanced and Nitrox

Hi Scuba, welcome to the board and yes we have good diving out here.

Do you know the dates yet that you will be coming out to Vancouver? I am sure that someone on here should be able to play dive guide for you and show you around.

We dive all year round here and it varies what you see from month to month.
