Where Are We Going?

Tyee Cove is an excellent dive site located near Parksville and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. As a community park, they have parking facilities and some change rooms right next to the beach where will be entering the water; it's one of the easiest shore dives you will ever do! Between the left and right walls, the sandy chute, and the eel grass bed in the shallows you will have a chance to see all different types of wildlife. We have often seen Stellar and California sea lions swimming around, giant pacific octopus, cabezons, nudibranchs, and the famous wolf eel named Grandpa!

Join us for a full day trip over to experience Vancouver Island diving; some of the best diving in the world!

    Commitment to Safety and Enjoyment

    At Diving Sports we believe in making sure all our divers (Scuba and Freedivers) receive the best possible experience while maintaining a high standard for safety, both for the divers, the guide, and the environment we are visiting. Our dive guides have many years of experience diving locally in cold water. All Dive guides are trained in first aid and oxygen delivery. First Aid kits and DAN Oxygen Kits are present on all trips and courses. Dive sites or dive plans may be changed due to weather conditions or experience level of the group, as well as anyone not adhering to proper dive practices will politely be asked to adapt to better interact with the underwater environment.
