    BC Divers

    Is there anyone on the forum from British Columbia? I know there are a lot of divers in BC but is there anyone roaming this forum or are you all too busy diving?

    Looks like I'm a little late to this party, but I'm a BC diver. Just got back from the Sunshine Coast but will be out of the water until I get a new drysuit.

    I'll be in Vancouver for my honeymoon from April 21 through the 26. If I was to get a little free time from sight seeing and honeymooning, what are the water conditions like that time of year? Is it dry suit only or would a 7mm wetsuit cut it?

    Definately not the greatest time of the year to get into the water- we get quite a few algae blooms around this time of the year and so therefore the water is quite murky (lucky if you get 5 feet).

    Although this year has been unusually cold...

    The last few dives I've been on the vis has not been the greatest.

    As for drysuit/ 7mm ... normally a 7 mm would be fine this time of the year as the water temperature is usually between 8-12celcius right now, however once again it has been unusually cold andthe water has been between 5-7 which you can definately feel.

    I know I'm quite undecisive lol, hopefully someone else has some input to help you make up your mind.

    My mind may be made up by lack of time to dive. With a day trip to Victoria, things to see in Vancouver such as the aquarium, Stanley Park, Chinatown; diving may not be an option. Any other suggestions for tourist things to do?
