Pacific Northwest Underwater Photo Gallery
SCUBA diving in the Pacific Northwest is unlike any other place in the world. The temperate waters are home to an amazing amount of biodiversity. The reefs are covered in multi-colored anemones, octo corals, sponges, and tunicates. These animals create homes for a myriad of critter including sculpins, crabs, shrimp, nudibranchs, and giant pacific octopus. The bull kelp in shallow water creates a canopy for shafts of light to filter through the emerald green waters. My trips to this region have been to parts of the US and Canada. The Port Hardy area of Vancouver Island, British Columbia has the world renown Browning Pass Wall with plentiful and beautiful marine life. I’ve also been fortunate enough to travel up through Ketchikan and the Inside Passage of Alaska ending trips in both Juneau and Sitka.
