Accommodations very comfortable, comfortable bed, private bathroom, heated floor. Family style meals are delicious! Marked trails on the... More

We have been virtually travelling the world to scuba dive and heard of God's Pocket by coincidense and wanted to try it out. It was way beyond expectations, when we had been there for 3 hours, we felt part of the family and literally "at home". Fantastic diving, great food - three home cooked meals a day, very cosy accomodation... More

To be able to get away from it all and hide in a corner of the world still untouched by human greed. God's Pocket is not only a natural gem, tucked away amongst the islands of the northern Vancouver Island coast, it is also one of the world's best diving spots. Period. Add to this incredibly knowledgeable and service-oriented staff,... More

God's Pocket is not just the best of northwest BC diving but, also staffed by people that make the trip just so remarkable. Everyone at God's Pocket is the best at what they do. The cook created three outstanding meals each day from a kitchen that's basically in the wilderness. The owners show their love of their jobs through every... More

I have been lucky to have had the opportunity to dive all over the world. I have always thought that places like Galapagos and French Polynesia were the ultimate destinations until I dove God's Pocket. The coldwater diving offers critters and colourful coral. We were lucky enough to see Giant Pacific Octopus and Wolf Eels. God's Pocket resort is run... More

This is cold water diving at it's best. The sites are beautiful! The boat has an elevator! The rooms are really clean and comfortable, and the food is plentiful and excellent. The hosts Annie and Bill are super friendly and helpful. Can't say enough good things.

Unbelievable. A quaint, charming, comfortable, incredibly well-maintained place in a gorgeous remote setting, run by two of the most amazing and friendly people you'll ever meet. Amazing food (how she does what she does in that little kitchen we'll never know). Beautiful hiking trails, wildlife, sea creatures, it's all there. It really doesn't get much better than this.
