Today there was quite a small tidal exchange which allowed us to dive a more challenging site, Stubbs Island.
On larger tides, this island receives so much current that eddies and big upwellings form. All this churning water means there is abundant oxygen and plankton delivery so the density of marine-life on Stubbs Island is truly mind-blowing. There isn’t a centimetre of rock that does not have something growing on it.
I would like to share my images from this dive today. I hope they give a sense of the awe-inspiring beauty and biodiversity of our Northern Vancouver Island marine “backyard”.
I’ll let the photos do talking.
