Best scuba diving in Canada, BC

Best scuba diving in Canada, BC, Vancouver Island

Welcome to the home page of Rendezvous Dive Adventures.

Scuba diving in BC (British Columbia) on the west coast of Vancouver Island in Canada is a spectacular and unique experience. Since 1973 great encounters with wolf-eels, Giant pacific octopus, sea lions, six gill sharks and much more have been our trademark. Combine this with great home made meals, whale and wild life viewing options and amenities such as a hot tub on the viewing deck, kayaks, a dedicated camera / classroom and you can see why we are one of the premier dive charter operators and a prime dive destination in Canada.
