Please arrive 45 minutes before your charter is scheduled to depart and check in at the Expedition Centre to pick up needed equipment, then head to unload your gear at the winter or boat dock in Sewell’s Marina.

This activity will end right where it started.
Arrive at the Expedition Center on Horseshoe Bay 30 minutes prior to your boat's departure. Unload all your gear and get set up before boarding the boat; gear rental is also available. This tour is suitable for all levels of certified divers, or you can choose the 'ride-along only' option if you'd simply like to explore the scenery of Howe Sound from the boat's deck. If you're a solo traveler, don't worry about finding a buddy: We can provide a qualified Divemaster on request. 

Board the Topsail, a 40-foot (12-meter) vessel made for diving and equipped with a large dive platform, an on-board compressor, a viewing deck, a heated cabin, and a marine toilet. 

Once you reach Howe Sound, get to exploring the underwater world, including Vancouver's first artificial reef, the HMCS Annapolis. You'll also encounter seals, Pacific octopus, wolf eels, nudibranches, and other sea life. 

Back on the boat, warm up with hot soup or tea before heading back to Horseshoe Bay.

The team is taking very good care of everyone, they make sure everyone is having a great time. There is so much to see underwater, also were able to spot some seals so it was an awesome experience. I’d do it again and will be back again.
