God's Pocket, best diving in the Pacific Northwest

Join professional photographer Richard Salas for a 7 day phenomenal cold water photographic learning experience! Giant Pacific octopus, decorated warbonnets, lions mane jellyfish, hooded nudibranchs, wolf eels, and much more awaits you at this secluded island paradise.

God's Pocket Resort, operating for over 25 years, is a land-based diving location for cold water divers of all levels. Accessible only by boat, it is a secluded wilderness spot surrounded by forested islands and the waterways of the Queen Charlotte Strait. A visit to God's Pocket provides not only spectacular cold water diving, but also an opportunity for kayaking, hiking, shore walks, wildlife viewing, including whale watching.

God’s Pocket Resort is the only resident of beautiful Hurst Island, British Columbia, on the east (inside) of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. Nestled in an enchanting cove off Christie Passage, 12 miles north of Port Hardy, we offer a tranquil setting in which to relax after a day of the best cold water scuba diving in the world.

A payment of $500 USD per person is due 6 month before departure date. 

Balance of the trip must be paid in full 3 months before departure date.
