Come visit us for the dive experience of a life time!

Nootka Sound, located off the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, is probably the best-kept secret in the saltwater diving community!

Here in Tahsis, we have a number of scuba diving groups that return to our part of the Emerald Sea every year to explore the underwater wonders at our doorstep. The majority of our most popular dive sites are within a 20-30 minute boat ride from the dock.

These spectacular dive sites range from relatively shallow wall dives with huge rock scallops and octopus to deeper dive sites festooned with cloud sponges and corals.

Our Dive Boat –“MV Shorebird”

Come join us aboard our 23′ dive boat that accommodates six scuba divers in comfort and carries all required safety equipment including first aid and emergency oxygen.

Check out our scuba diving charter rates, gear rentals and payment options at the bottom of this page. If you want a clearer idea of exactly where Tahsis is, please check out our Location.

Want a well rounded BC vacation?

Something for non-divers to do? Why not book one of our “above water” adventure tours. A Tahtsa Charters eco tour includes something for everyone, including wildlife viewing (bears, sea otters, sea lions), whale watching and sight seeing. Please visit our Adventure Tours page.
