The magnificent Pacific Northwest is the epitome of the wild frontier of cold water diving! This unique environment is a diver’s dream with extraordinary diving with orcas and humpback whales beckoning in the distance.

Trip Leader: Gary Boyer

The Pacific Northwest remains one of Ocean First’s favorite dive destinations. Yes, the water temperature is refreshing, but the magical world that lies below the surface is bound to warm you up! This part of the Pacific is known for unusual creatures like the wolf eel, the decorated war bonnet, large & small nudibranchs, giant Pacific octopus, the elusive spotted rat fish and much, much more! The summer season brings orcas and humpback whales into the channel making exciting dives even more memorable for lucky divers. God’s Pocket Resort is arguably the most sought-after dive resort in the area. Catering to avid divers, they have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, comfortable, and one you will remember for years to come. The superb staff at God’s Pocket will make you feel like family, spoil you with delicious food every day, guarantee that you will laugh often and will see or hear something for the first time!
