Nope, we're not talking about the TV show, but a fantastic little place Beneath BC. Located in Howe Sound, just half an hour outside of Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver. As we've said before, "the mountains of BC don't stop at the waterline, they keep going". Here is no exception. Howe Sound in BC is actually North America's largest glacial fjord. The towering mountains you can see on the way up to Whistler descend beneath the waves, creating large walls, canyons, reefs, and in the case of Dragon's Den - beautiful overhangs.
Dragon's Den was discovered and named by local dive & snorkel charter Sea Dragon Charters. It's an overhang - meaning a large cliff with an indent part way down. Divers can swim in 10 feet or so. It is not a cave, or an "overhead environment" - which would require special training. The rocks are covered in plumose anemones, hanging from the top, and climbing up the sides. Rockfish swimming around, small fish called black eyed gobies, crabs, shrimp... all calling this Den home.
It's a great dive, full of diverse marine life, colour, epic scale that serve as a great reminder - BC's geography goes on and one and on and...
