Have you noticed that many of the photos in Andy Lamb’s books are from Sechelt inlet?

The Setting: Sechelt inlet/Skookumchuck narrows provide an outstanding range of boat dives.  The tides this week will allow 2 slack tide dives in Skookumchuck Narrows. This is an underwater landscape sculpted by tidal surges greater than 16 knots.  The wall dives in Jervis Inlet provide an opportunity to see Gorgonian corals at recreational depths along with cloud sponges and an abundance of invertebrates and fish.  Sechelt Inlet provides a number of close by shallow reefs to poke around in and see abundant life. All with fantastic visibility!

The Accommodations: Strongwater Retreat is a 5 minute boat ride from the Egmont dock.  Accommodations and bath facilities are in heated yurts. Meals and common room are in the main house.  Dive gear stays on the boat and there is a drying room to hang suits and thermals.

The fine print: Maximum registration 8.

$150 USD deposit reserves your place.  Full payment $600 USD due by March 1. Full rebate if withdraw by March 1.  After March 1 only if a replacement is found. An exchange rate adjustment will be made at the time of the trip.

Pay the EDC treasurer or at the shop.  Make checks payable to Eugene Dive Club.
