Behind you playful seals watch your every move, while huge bald eagles soar overhead. And up ahead, a dozen orca whales swim silently past while one breaches just a few meters away from your group.

So that's why the seal took off!!

With all this amazing marine life, it's no wonder the diving in Port Hardy and area is considered some of the absolute best scuba diving in the world.
