Diving

The water temperature ranges from 6-12 degrees celsius and visibility changes throughout the year. As with most BC diving, visibility is best in the spring, fall and winter (15-30 metres/50′-100′). During the summer months, particulate in the water reduces visibility slightly (5-20 metres/20′-70′). Strong currents in the area mean that our dives are planned based on slack times rather than the clock. We aim to do three to four dives in a day but there is no guarantee that we can dive a specific site at a specific time. We can guarantee that over your stay here you will be able to dive a variety of amazing sites.

Lodging

Accommodations at the Hideaway are rustic and cozy. We have a range of double and triple room configurations, with single and double beds. All rooms are with ensuite bathroom, linens and towels are provided. Electrical power is available by generator so your camera and lights will always be ready for your next dive. Rooms have in-room controlled heating.

Dining

Three home-cooked meals a day are included. Breakfast includes cooked items such as fluffy pancakes, french toast, eggs made to order, sausages and bacon, and you may also choose from a selection of cereals, porridge (<– yep, it’s Canada!), fruit, toast and fresh muffins. Lunch typically consists of hearty soups to warm us divers up served with bread, buns and crackers, as well as a variety of sandwich fixings and salads. Two meat dishes are typically available for dinner, served with potato, pasta or rice, several cooked vegetables and salad, plus dessert of course!
