Scuba Diving - Snake Island,
Vancouver Island Diving Adventure
Nanaimo has often been referred to as the Whistler of Diving.
As a dive destination, Nanaimo has a growing reputation. If
you follow the scuba diving scene worldwide, you may have already
heard of the heroic accomplishments of the local dive community.
A mere 15 minute boat ride from the harbour, you will come
across two of the largest and most successful artificial reefs
in the world, The Saskatchewan, a 110-metre decommissioned
Navy-class destroyer was sunk in 1997 near Snake Island and
has since drawn thousand of divers. Then, in 2001, the mammoth
Cape Breton was sunk in the immediate vicinity of the Saskatchewan,
creating the world's largest diving reef. In addition to the
artificial diving reefs, Nanaimo has a plethora of natural
dive sites and every service a diver could want.
