Scuba Dive Vancouver’s First Artificial Reef!
7 years in the making, the former HMCS Annapolis is the latest artificial reef to be sunk in British Columbia. What makes this reef special is it’s proximity to mainland Vancouver. A mere 20 minute boat ride onboard our vessel Topline, will bring you to Halkett Bay, where you can enjoy dives on the 366 foot destroyer class warship.
The Annapolis is a already stunning dive, with lots to see for recreational divers, as well as more challenging areas for technical and wreck divers. A great dive for training, photographers, tec divers, and recreational divers.
Vancouver Aquarium is asking divers to share their pictures and videos to help with the Annapolis Biodiversity Index Study – A.B.I.S. The study is expected to run for five years, allowing for a fantastic and continuing opportunity for diver involvement in the program. The Aquarium is looking for any photos and video of the Annapolis. This is a fantastic opportunity to help support a citizen science project, and monitor the reef.
