     Welcome to Rendezvous Dive Adventures


Scuba diving on the west coast of Vancouver Island is a spectacular and unique experience. Discovering  Barkley Sound with 

Rendezvous Dive Adventures adds an extra dimension to it. Situated between Port Alberni and Bamfield, in the middle of nature,

we offer great diving and encounters with wildlife below and above the water. Rendezvous Dive Adventures in Barkley Sound is the 

longest running charter business of diving in BC, Vancouver Island. Home of great diving with wolf eels, Giant pacific octopus, and 

one of the world richest waters. Also called the Emerald Sea, it was rated by Jacques Cousteau as the second best site in the world! 

Rodale's dive magazine has called it the best dive destination in North America and BC waters were recently named North America's 

healthiest waters. Come and stay in our full accommodation lodge in the middle of nature and meet the eagles, bears and whales. 

Or enjoy the hot tub after a day of diving, take one of our kayaks, or just relax. You can be picked up in Port Alberni or Bamfield and small groups or individuals can join us via the local ferry. All meals are provided and Kathy's cooking is enchanting

our guests. We also offer some creature ID courses and we have limited gear rentals. It will be the perfect diving vacation or dykken 

as the Danish say ;) So come book your exclusive diving holidays for groups or individuals.
