The May Island Ferry is a fun place to dip beneath the waves of BC. Located a short way from Campbell River the May Island Ferry is a former BC car ferry that sank a few decades ago.
It now rests in shallow water just off May Island and has become a habitat for lots of marine life. Due to the shallow nature of the wreck, there is an abundance of light - the more light, the more life. The May Island Ferry wreckage is now down to its bones only, which means there's lots of water flow moving through the wreckage, but also shelter from the current. All resulting in a great location for schools of shiner perch, sponges and anemones.
