Overview of Beach Garden Resort

Beach Garden Resort

Sunshine Coast, BC


There are two very easy dives at the Beach Garden, one to the left and one to the right of the marina. These protected entries are perfect for the beginner, and the breakwaters offer an ideal location to check out new gear and have a relaxing dive.

Directions: From the ferry terminal at Saltery Bay, the entrance is 26km to the North on 101, just South of Powell River.

02/20/2006 Bryan Heit (Avg: 3.43 Review) - There are lots of places to dive here, but the best stuff is off the jetty. Near the end of the jetty, in ~25' of water, is a small wreck. Lots of little things hiding in this area, and in the surrounding eel grass. From the first wreck there is a cable (bearing of ~180 degrees) which takes you to a second wreck in ~60' water. Lots of life at the second wreck, and a little more of the wreck left to see. Keep on the cable to avoid getting lost or drifting into the entry for the marina. DO NOT dive in the marina. Current can get quite fast, so keep an eye on your tide tables. Lots of boat traffic around the marina, so use a flag.

05/01/2002 Danny McKenzie (Avg: 4.42 Review) - This site is pretty shallow ~30 feet tops. Sandy bottom for the most part, many types of crabs and small fish. This was a very easy dive. You could easily do this same dive with a snorkel.

Again, the entry could not be easier. The jetty to the right is a great place to explore!
