Yup....I'm an ex-pat living in Abbotsford. Love diving Keystone/Edmonds occasionally, but Whytecliff and Porteau tend to be where I dive most often. Vis has been disgusting lately, but yesterday it opened up nicely at Whytecliff and Copper Cove. What a treat not do braille diving. If you are planning a club dive up here, I'd love to join you and maybe even show you around.

Ex-pat Canuck living south of Seattle. Club Dive at Porteau Cove sounds like a great idea!

I'm a dual citizen(don't tell spatman), but I live at the bottom of washington. I'll let you know when I'm in the area though. Diving up there sure beats the Columbia River.

A round up of Canadians!! Just what we need to liven things up a bit around here!

:whip:

We have a few ex-pats on the board that should represent soon, but we need a Canadian contingent on NWDC!

Can you say Club Dive up North, anyone?

Looks like you need to go round up some Canadian divers and bring them back to this site!

Or am I alone? All alone on this big big site.

I want to meet more Victoria dive buddies and dive 24/7 with no worries about running out of air or NDLs!
