HMCS Annapolis and Howe Sound 3/10

Post by theonly_JT » Mon Mar 12, 2018 9:03 pm

I've been dying to get to Canada to dive and finally convinced someone to tag along with me. Thank mom! :rofl:

Hooked up with Sea Dragon charters this past weekend for 4 dives and we could have not had better weather. My main objective was to check out the Annapolis (mission accomplished) and enjoy some clear(er) waters.

The captain and crew were all wonderful, 8 people out on the boat made for a nice group, not too crowded. Anyways, the annapolis was everything I hoped it would be! Not a ton of life on the wreck yet as it's only been down for about 3 years but still a very cool dive. We then hit a few HUGE walls that dropped into the abyss, boats depth finder read over 300ft just a stone throw off shore. Never dove anything like them before so to me they were very impressive and epic. Lots of cloud sponges. Ended on a very cool pinnacle with some very large Giant nudi's. 10/10 would do again.

Here are a few snaps I've pulled so far, video to follow soon.

Sounds like a fun trip! Only having 8 people on the boat must have been great. It gets a bit crowded when they fill it up. I'm assuming you guys hit Halkett Wall at least once. The structure there is really impressive when the vis is good.
