This is Trisha on Christmas Eve, diving a small sailboat wreck off of the Comox coastline. It's not the most amazing dive site in BC, but it is fun. A 30 foot long concrete sailboat found in about 70 feet of water has given life a chance, in an otherwise barren area. Plumose anemones (seen in the photo), rockfish, cod and octopus can be found, calling this little shipwreck home.
The snow doesn't stop a good dive though! It started snowing Christmas Eve morning and continued through the night, when we went for our dive the beach was covered in a thin layer of white, and the air temperature was actually lower than the water!
If you wrap up warm and wear the correct diving gear, such as thermal undergarments and drysuits, you'll stay nice and warm whilst exploring beneath BC.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas, lets make 2018 the year to rediscover British Columbia!
