Protecting Dive Sites In British Columbia’s Emerald Sea.

The Underwater Council of BC maps 175 dive sites on Northern Vancouver Island to help protect them for future generations. You can help.
Northern Vancouver Island has the best cold water diving on the planet, some say. But who is protecting these ancient and beautiful sites for the future?  The UCBC has just submitted a report to the Marine Planning Partnership which is documenting precious marine resources from Campbell River to the Haida Gwaii. The dive site report, written for the UCBC by Gary Marcuse, features the photos and videos of Paul Sim and Rob Roy.  The report shows how rare and beautiful these sites are.  You can watch a 2 minute video, download the report and view the dive sites, below.
