Vancouver Island, British
BC MARINE LIFE
|Diving along Canada's west coast is a treat for animal lovers
as long as you don't mind very cold water! The nutrient-rich waters of the
Northeast Pacific support an enormous amount of life from tiny phytoplankton to
Humpback and Gray Whales and everything in between. In short, you'll see
lots of everything, growing bigger than anywhere else.
|Surfing is possible and actually very good if you have a thick
wetsuit and don't mind driving several hours from Victoria. When the swell
and wind is right there are many quality spots to check out from beackbreaks to
classic rivermouths and the crowds are nothing compared to Hawaii.
