Features

Wall

Description

Swim straight out about 75 feet or so and submerge. Continue straight to the lip of the wall at about 35 feet deep. The wall drops sheer to about 130 feet deep. The wall continues to the left. If you go right the wall diminishes. Boot Sponges can be found heading straight down to the bottom of the wall. And at the western end of the wall are some cloud sponges that appear in bad health. Variious Rockfish can be found hanging on the wall, and abundunt small life can be found on the flats above the wall.

Special Restrictions:

Vis can be poor here and the bottom of the wall is right at Recreational limits.

How to get there:

From Victoria head north on Hwy 17. Take the Royal Oak Drive exit and head west on Royal Oak. After you pass over the Hwy take a right on West Saanich Rd. After 4 miles or so, take a left on Wallace drive then shortly after another left on Willis Point road which will end at a "T" at Mark Road. Turn right and look for the dirt road after house #7442. Do not block the fire lane and show courtesy to the neighbors. The wall starts straight out from the dirt road, and extends to the left.

Holy cow! We lucked out with phenomenal visability. I took video at 106 feet of my depth gauge then panned up the wall and could see the orb of the sun at the surface! We could see the whole wall at once and it felt like flying more so than usual! One of my best dives ever! Lots of little life in the shallows, and lots of rockfish on the wall.
