$32 for a Saanich Inlet Snorkeling Tour with Rental Gear ($65 Value)
For two hours, small groups of snorkelers explore the shallow waters surrounding Saanich Inlet. Here, they might encounter seals and fish, observe cylindrical plumose anemones and jellyfish waving in the current, or marvel at sea slugs completing a game of tic-tac-toe on the ocean floor. When finished, tour-takers can wash the salt water off in at the dockside rinse station or grab a warm shower at the marina eco centre.
The instructors at Rockfish Divers love scuba diving and sharing their passion with others. But they also realize that much of the appeal of scubaing is seeing the amazing natural sites. That's why the team teaches its students environmentally friendly behaviours, such as how not to upset delicate sealife and why pouring sugar into the sea doesn't make it freshwater. Through PADI open-water diving courses, chartered diving trips, and snorkeling, Rockfish Divers provides adventurers with a great way to see a different side of Victoria.
