Snorkel with Seals! Scuba diving Nanaimo! Just Dive In!

Picking up a  diver

Scuba diving Nanaimo at its best! Come and dive the HMCS Saskatchewan, a 366 foot sunken destroyer that is teaming with life from top to bottom or one of the other artificial reefs we have nearby. Not into diving Nanaimo shipwrecks? No problem, the emerald green waters around Vancouver Island are teaming with life. So if you want to see giant pacific octopus, a wolf eel or two or just want the opportunity to snorkel with seals, we can take you there!

Diver surfacing

Just Dive In Adventures is a Transport Canada certified day charter boat that takes divers out to the artificial reefs and dive sites around Nanaimo and other locations on Vancouver Island. For our boat tours we use a 25-foot rigid hull inflatable outfitted to handle up to six divers. This boat is a safe and stable dive platform which gets out to the dive sites fast and allows us to visit some of the further sites and be back in a reasonable time. We can trailer the boat anywhere so if you have somewhere in particular on the island you would like to go, call us, we can configure the boat to your needs and are always up for an adventure!


We have daily dive charters and marine eco-tours starting the beginning of June until the end of September. We are available any other time throughout the year as well- just email or call us! We cater to all groups or individuals and donít worry if you donít have a buddy, we can find you a buddy based on your experience or arrange for a divemaster to be your guide. Scuba gear and snorkel packages can be rented at Sink or Swim Scuba which offers high quality gear at a great price.


Our marine eco-tours can be tailored to meet your needs and we have the seating capacity to accommodate up to 12 passengers. You may just want to cruise around and take in some scenery and some pictures of the marine life in the area such as the large variety of birds, sea lions, seals and if we are lucky whales and dolphins! For the more adventurous, we offer a snorkel with the seals trip which is always fun and very popular. Snorkeling Nanaimo - what better way to build memories?


Our dive trips usually run about 4-5 hours and divesites may vary due to diver experience and environmental conditions.
