The Ogden Point Enhancement Society Web Site...
Those of you who read this occasionally know that I am now sitting on the Board of Directors for the Ogden Point Enhancement Society.
Ogden Point is one of the spots in Canada that I consider among the best dive locations in our country, particularly for beginners and the Society is committed to protecting and promoting the location, something near and dear to my heart. Ogden Point is not only the location I completed my Scuba Diving Instructors Certification, it is home to some of the finest and most accessible scuba diving in the Pacific Northwest.
The Ogden Point Enhancement Society is adding an Interpretive Center within the Point this year to inform visitors on the marine life of Ogden Point and the surrounding areas, which I am happy to be designing and implementing.
The amazing Ogden Point Breakwater was constructed between 1914 and 1917 and required over one million tons of rock, ten thousand granite blocks, fifty three concrete caissons and over one million cubic yards of dredged fill to build. Indeed, a Canadian engineering marvel.
There are a number of entry points along the breakwater which allow entrance at a wide variety of depths, but the farther you go, the harder it is to get there with a dive tank strapped to your back on the walk out. However, the farther out you go, the greater the variety of sea life...
I am pleased to feature on this post the new web site we have just completed for them. It is online now here >
