Here is a little bit about the Porteau Cove British Columbia dives from last week while I was up in British Columbia:
Dive One we just sort of went down the stairs and swam underwater to the artificial reef and poked around the tires and concrete stuff. Lots of shrimp, Dungeness crab, Decorator crab, and a shy Kelp Greenling. We looked around for an hour or so and headed back for a surface interval and to change cylinders.
Dive Two we did a surface swim out to the buoy marking the Granthall wreck, then dropped down the line. Viz opened up to 40′ below the algae layer on top. Lots of Plumose Anemone, Copper Rockfish, and some very large Lingcod. Also saw Moon jelly, Sea blubber, California Sea Cucumber plus another type that I haven’t seen before, and a single Orange Sea Pen.
Dive site is pretty shallow, don’t think we got below 50″ and the tide was going out. Both dives were lots of fun, I plan to go back soon and take some more pictures. Check out the photographs from this trip on the Porteau Cove, BC Facebook album.
Just quick check in. Spending a few days in Whistler, British Columbia with my good dive buddy Rob Kroll. “The Plan” is to head down during the day and dive Porteau Cove and Whytecliff Park. I’ll post some pictures and maybe a video next week, after the trip is finished. Thought I would post a fun video of the site from YouTube I found, Whytecliff Park Dive Site Vancouver British Columbia.
