Dive Trips

In addition to projects, the Underwater Archaeological Society of British Columbia also conducts simple dive trips. These dive trips are generally organized by an experienced UASBC wreck diver, with the goal of bringing other divers of all training and experience levels to a known BC shipwreck.  Dive trips do not entail any archaeological goals.  They are an opportunity for newer divers to explore a new (to them) shipwreck, and for seasoned divers to gain more experience with wreck diving while observing the natural shipwreck deterioration process in our waters.

Even the most experienced wreck divers learn something new, virtually every time they dive a shipwreck.  Topside in-between dives, UASBC members get the opportunity to talk, laugh and get to know other members.  Whatever your level of training or experience is, we hope to see you out on our next dive trip!     

Below are the upcoming UASBC dive trips. To join a trip, email the trip organizer though the email address provided. You must be a UASBC member; if you are not a member please join the UASBC to participate.  If there are no upcoming dive trips listed below, please check back soon.        

Swordfish Dive

Sunday, October 20, 2019 (All day)

We will be diving on the wreck of the Swordfish in Pedder Bay near Race Rocks. The Sword fish was an Iron bark that sank in 1877. Weather permitting we may try look at a Reef Net site in Becher Bay or do a dive at Swordfish Island. We will depart from Pedder Bay for this trip.
