Everyone at the shop and on the boat were very friendly and knowledgeable. During the boat trip and dives I felt safe, relaxed, and I saw some wonderful wildlife!!!
Great Diving Experience!

Loved getting to dive to the Annapolis. Jade, our divemaster, was really easygoing, and also appropriately cautious. Would be happy to dive with her again. Kevin seemed to be running things on the boat and he was terrific helping to get me up to speed after a long absence from diving (My last dive was pre-Covid).

Definitely recommend this place (especially for experienced divers) and I hope to go back soon.
How can something be great and equally disappointing at the same time?

The review is average for a very specific reason- and it may not apply to most. But it might apply to some of you so here we go.

I've been here a few times for trips and just gear rentals and overall the experience has been pretty good. People are nice enough, knowledgeable and accommodating. Prices are what they are- the rental equipment is great quality... If you want to dive around Howe Sound and don't care where you're going then no question this is probably the outfit you will be happy with. Skippers and dive masters I've had- no complaints at all. Top tier all.

Without getting into the whole story if you want to go to a specific place then make sure the boat is going to go to the place before you commit to paying and getting on the boat. I've been out with them a couple times now and both times you're pretty much on the boat and leaving when there's a poll to determine where you're going. There's pretty much no going back.

Most people are just happy to be diving the west coast and that's great. You'll be pleased- the skippers and dive masters know the sites, are professional and ready to help you.

But for those of you looking to go to specific locations... it's pretty disappointing. Actually- it's really disappointing. The last two times I've gone out I asked specifically for one place and the first time around I got told on the phone "Oh yeah try Thursday or Saturday." Showed up Saturday "Oh no, we just went there yesterday (Friday). We're going to this other place today."

Last time it was basically just the skipper looking at a group of local regulars "I imagine you don't want to go to THIS place today?" (the place I wanted to go).

"NO!" so we went to look at something else. It was soul crushing (so I'm probably making a bigger deal out of it than I should).

And I understand it probably just needs to be like this to make it profitable... but if you want a SPECIFIC site you need to know this is what to expect before you've paid and you're on the boat leaving dock with no option to opt out.
