About Our Scuba Tour

British Columbia was voted the #1 diving destination in North America by Scuba Diving Magazine because of its biodiversity and vibrant life. Its nutrient rich waters and amazing topography make for stunning diving. By boat diving with Sea Dragon you will encounter a diversity of marine life in the Pacific North West, and see Vancouver’s first artificial reef – the HMCS Annapolis!

Explore Howe Sound on Topline, a 40-foot vessel specifically customized for divers. This includes an on-board compressor, marine toilet, large dive platform, and topside viewing deck – all of which make your trip comfortable and hassle-free. Spend more time diving and less time lugging gear to shore! You’ll also receive hot soup (or tea) on your surface interval and be able to warm up in Topline’s heated cabin between dives. Talk about value-added!

This tour accommodates all levels of certified divers – recreational, technical, rebreather, photographers, free-divers, and more. Gear rental is available and we can provide a qualified Divemaster upon request. No need to worry about finding a buddy!

Not a scuba diver? Choose the non-diver ride along option to hop on board with a friend. Non-divers can also choose an alternative tour, the Sea Life Cruise. This separate excursion allows non-divers to soak up the scenery and see the beauty of British Columbia from a unique perspective, including snorkelling and kayaking with seals!
