Comments Helen and Peter run a good dive op at Cabrits. Small boat but more than fine for 3 - 5 divers on our 5 dives. Nice night dive at Pole to Pole. Saw free swimming eel, seahorses, peacock flounder, flying gurnards, turtles, and one southern stingray. Diving up in Portsmouth was good but not nearly as good as the diving in the south. Comortel de Champ was a great place to stay, great views of Prince Rupert Bay, simple but nice rooms, huge bathrooms. Hans and Lise were great hosts. Good value! The drive up the hill was an adventure. Rent a jeep, don't even think of getting a car.
