Had a great experience with Pacific Pro Dive from booking all the way to dropping down to 25 feet with 10-12 sea lions swimming around me. They made sure I was sized properly for my rental gear the day before and gave me great directions to the dive boat the next morning. The dive master and boat captain were incredibly... More

Planned a dive excursion in Campbell River and was happy to see that Pacific Pro Dive had opened a shop there and was doing trips from that location. I have dove with PPD in Courtenay before and had a great time, so it was great to see them in CR. Had a terrific dive day and super service from Bill,... More

Had a fantastic day on the water with Bill. Very friendly, funny and highly knowledgeable about the local marine life. Bill went above and beyond to accommodate our group of Ontario visiters, one with accessibility issues in a wheel chair. No issues getting him in or out of the zodiac. Thanks for the great day bill!!!!

I contacted Pacific Pro Dive by email well in advance of my holiday to set up a couple of days diving. We would be travelling on Vancouver Island from 5th to 14th June. My wife doesn't dive, and since there were just the two of us, I required either to be buddied up on a boat charter, or if that... More

Bill C, Owner at Pacific Pro Dive and Marine Adventures, responded to this review

Hello Brian, I apologize that we were not able to get enough people together to run a boat trip last weekend, we are still in a shoulder season and occasionally are unable to run trips due to low passenger numbers. As I am sure you can appreciate, it is simply not feasible to send out a boat and crew for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our Marine Adventure tour in Campbell River. Bill is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and the marine animals. It was an action packed day, we saw everything from sea lions, to porpoises to hump back whales. We even saw a pod of killer whales! I would highly recommend this company for a full day of marine...

We had a great all day Marine Adventure Tour with our out of town guests. Bill took us to see a Hump Back, a pod of dolphins, a beautiful picnic sight (where there were sea loins) and then to the Orcas. The scenery is just as amazing as the action in the water! Bill is very knowledgeable and fun to... More

I was very excited to go diving off of Vancouver island and although I did get certified in cold water, I've only booked my diving through companies in warmer holiday places. The boat for this trip was small, you did everything yourself, and we did a buddy system where my buddy and I didn't see anyone else in the water.... More

Last weekend Pacific Pro Dive took me and my dive buddies out to Vivian Island to freedive with the Sea Lions and it was a mindblowingly awesome experience. Equally amazing was the big bin of hot water to thaw out my feet and cup of the most delicious hot coco once I got back on the boat. I had a... More

I completed my PADI Dry Suit Diver specialty with Pacific Pro Dive and had an incredible day out on the ocean. Instead of doing the two dry suit dives off shore, I had the chance hop on the boat and go out to Vivian Island. On the voyage to the dive sites and the surface interval we happened to see... More
