Comments First time in colder water, West coast of Canada is rated one of the best places to dive and I see why, fantastic wrecks...150 foot Rip Tow Ocean Tug, 336 foot Destroyer HMCS Saskatchewan,410 foot HMCS Cape Breton. I was on a wreck course so this was all I saw this time, Jeff from Aqua-Tek did a great job instructing us in wreck diving 101. Nanaimo is a beautiful place and there is lots to do!
