Browning Pass is a remote channel and is considered as a diving jewel in British Columbia. I cannot argue about that as I have explored it myself and have witnessed the evidence. I have already been through a variety of shores in British Columbia, but Browning Pass is one of the most memorable diving channels I have ever encountered.
Just as I have dived deep down its waters, I immediately caught a glimpse of ghostly-white sea anemones, big clumps of sulfur sponges, and pastel-pink corals. In every nook and crannies, I can see feathery hydroids, spiny red urchins, purple hydrocorals, lacy basket stars, and rock scallops. I marveled at how the living tapestries make the ocean so alive with its rainbow colors.
As if it was not enough to captivate me, more surprises have awaited me as I have leveled off deeper. Massive schools of Rockfish and Red Irish Lord, along with their juveniles, form a very thick formation in some areas that it has distracted me from my path. There are also bizarre-looking marine mammals that can rival those that can be found in tropical diving areas when it comes to exotic beauty and vibrant coloration.
There is a lot to see in the waters of Browning Pass, British Columbia. The life underwater is so abundant that I do not find enough room for my body movements. Instantly, I am adrift in the bliss of underwater photography.
Browning Pass features a wide range of diving spots that hold a diverse variety of unique marine life and unusual subsea terrain. I consider the waterway in this channel to be the best temperate diving I have yet experienced. The movement of the ocean to the surface, the seasonal upwelling, the abundant sea life, and the wide assortment of exotic marine creatures make the channel outstanding in terms of abundance and variety.
