Boeing 737 Artificial reef - Canada

Boeing 737 Artificial reef is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Chemainus, BC, Canada. This dive site has an average rating of 4.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 81-90ft/25-27m. The average visibility is 16-20ft/5-6m.

This is a really cool dive!!! Where else can you dive through a 737 airplane? Access is by boat only. One bouy to tie to. The other 2 mark the nose and the tail of the plane. The depth is about 80’. There was a bit of a surface current, but if you go down the bouy line it is easy to find. The fuselage has been gutted except for the head (complete with toilet), the overhead bins, and the cockpit. There was a Ling cod and another rockfish in the cockpit when we went through. Not sure which one was pilot and which was co-pilot :) More info on this dive and other wrecks in BC can be found at the Artificial Reef Society of B.C’s website These guys have really done a lot for diving in Canada.

I have been on this site several times, first time was about 6 months after they put it down, then a couple of times since. Amazing rate of growth in a short time. Easy dive for newbies. Fun dive for everyone! Great job Peter Luckham of 49th Parallel Dive Charters!
