Ogden Point Breakwater

On July 26th, several members of the Vancouver Apneists boarded the 7am ferry to Victoria. Our aim was to dive the famous Ogden Point breakwater. At the breakwater we were joined by several other divers from Victoria and Saltspring Island. In all we had 16 freedivers in the water. It was the best attended club event so far.

The breakwater is an excellent dive site to bring beginners because it is easy to get in our out anywhere along the length of it. Lots of things such as the kelp forest, goosneck barnacles, crabs and chitons can all be seen without having to leave the surface. Other things such as lingcod, rockfish and plumouse anemones are just a few metres below the surface.

After our day at the breakwater we all came to the same conclusion: We need to organize more trips!
