Hornby Island is located off the east coast of Vancouver Island, accessible by two short ferry rides it is one of BC's best kept secrets. Well, maybe it's not that big a secret!
Hornby Island is a beautiful island that wouldn't look out of place in the tropics, but it's too good for that! Long sandy beaches, clear water, stunning cliff top walks, forests, artisans, and home to one of our favourite places - Hornby Island Diving.
Rob and Amanda Zielinski run BC most respected and loved diving resort. For a lot of people that read this blog post, you may not know what to expect from a diving resort. Well, its eat, sleep, dive. Every day. We love it! Amazing home cooked food, fantastic and very British Columbian accommodations, family atmosphere (including the ducks!), and some excellent diving.
Rob and Amanda are ocean advocates through and through. They have their fingers in many pies, becoming involved in all manner of conservation, education and research projects through the year. Check out the kelp restoration video we made with them last year.
Hornby is known for its sea lions in the winter months, but it also has a stunning amount of diving all year round. Summer time is particularly enjoyable - blue skies, clear water and lots of life. The above video was made in just one weekend, proving there's much to see Beneath BC.
