    Victoria, Vancouver Island, BC 27 June - 4 July '10

    Hey all!

    I am trying to line up some diving while I am in Victoria this summer.

    I understand Nanaimo is ~1.5 hrs north - but that is a bit far for more than one or two days.

    My goal is to dive around Victoria Mon-Thur then go to Naniamo for a full day either Friday or Sat. (or both...)

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Where can I get O2, scrubber, etc in Victoria?

    Thanks!

    OOPS!

    I just got the address from my Mom - I will be just North of Naniamo! Doh!

    staying at:
    Nanoose Bay, BC

    So I won't have problems getting to Nanaimo....

    I will be calling Ken at Diver's Choice...

    Thanks!

    I am on Ken's list for that week (28 June - 3 July) for boat trips but shore diving sounds fun too. (mel - I will email you)

    And I did contact Dave too.

    thrills - I will be going through Victoria each way and my Mom wants to do a day trip there so maybe we can at least meet, and I did see a few dive sites posted that looked interesting.

    Thank you all for the help and info!

    I will post my plans here and after the trip maybe some photos (I just got a SeaLife DC800 on sale - I guess I need to learn how to use it...).
