West Coast Diving - 2019
This is a log of my dives and pictures from Vancouver Island for 2019.
 
Maple Bay (2018-03-16 12:00) *Open Circuit & Canon 7D*

Open circuit dive at Maple Bay today with the big camera. Pretty crappy visibility, and not a lot to see or photograph. Still, good to go diving.

Lovely day, horrible visibility. The herring run is in full force and the visibility shows it. We didn't go to the wall because there would have been nothing to see. We did manage to see a baby ruby octo by one dry dock so the dive had one highlight.

The winds were high at Chemainus (again) this week, so we decided to go to Maple Bay instead. It was calm, but the water was very, very cold. Visibility was OK but not great. Overall a good dive.

A repeat of last week's dive. Again, great fun. The long scooter in from the deep wall to the boat ramp is probably the most fun part these days.

Another great dive today. Again we explored the farther, deeper wall, then headed in from the end straight to shore. Lots of fun.

 
Chemainus (2018-01-06 10:50) *Open Circuit & Piranna Scooter*

Great dive on the sunken dry docks and reef today. We explored beyond the end of the small wall and found a larger, deeper wall. Very cool.

It was a great day for a New Year's dive. The sun was 'almost' out at Chemainus, tides were middle and the ocean was calm. After gearing up, headed out on the scooter to the dry docks. After surveying all four, headed over to the small wall just off #2. After traversing the wall, back to shore for coffe. Overall an excellent dive.
