Dive Waypoint: Halfmoon Bay, Sechelt
Skill Level: Intermediate
DescriptionCooper's Green dive site is located in a small park
at Cooper's Green in Halfmoon Bay, Sechelt. It is right
beside a boat launching site, though it is well signed for
the boaters to stay to the north side of the launch. There
is also a small marina there. There is a small island about
50 meters off shore. The dive is to swim around the base of
the island. There is an octopus and a wolf eel sometimes
visible there. It is an easy, relaxing dive, nice for a
check out or shake out dive.
Depth Profile:Depending on the tide, the depth is a max of about 80 feet,
though less at low tide. There is an easy shore entry, from
a beach, with facilities for washing off after. The swim
to the island is short, dropping about 15 feet, then
decending beside the island steeply to 60-70 feet on average.
Facilities:There is a boat launch, phone, and small picnic/park area.
There is also a concession sometimes.
Hazards:There is some small amount of long grass between the island
and the shore, but you can swim over it.
Comments: This is a nice easy dive for checkouts, or shakeouts.
Rating: **** (One star - poor, 5 stars - excellent)
