Snorkeling & Diving

British Columbia is widely recognized as the #1 dive destination in North America. The waters around Hornby Island offer some of the most colourful waters in the Pacific Northwest, with a rich variety of marine life. This includes Giant Pacific octopus, wolf eels, harbour seals, large ling cod and rock fish, and colourful fauna.

Hornby Island waters offer good visibility and gentle currents, with the terrain offering a full range of drift dives, wall dives, deep dives, and underwater sculpted sandstone reefs.

In the shallower depths, reefs are accessible from shore, or jump off the back of a boat, for some pretty amazing snorkeling, too.

In the winter, incredible visibility makes frolicking with massive Sea Lions an unforgettable experience.
