Jacques Cousteau is said to have ranked the waters of the Pacific Northwest among the world's best places to dive, second only to the Red Sea for marine life diversity.
Readers of Scuba Diving magazine recently named British Columbia the Top Overall Dive Destination in North America. It's easy to see why.
Vancouver Island's cold, clean waters offer divers excellent visibility (especially in winter), numerous shipwrecks to explore, and close encounters with big marine life.
Best places to go:
Nanaimo, Comox Valley/Hornby island, Campbell River area, Barkley Sound, Nootka Sound.
Bungy Jump from 143 feet off the river in a beautiful rive gorge just outside of Nanaimo. Time it right and you might be able to jump right under a moving train!
Equipment: No gear needed, in fact on February 14th and 15th you don't even need clothes! For this is when Bungy Zone hosts their "Annual Naked Weekend"
