Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Emmonds Beach

Emmonds Beach offers another lazy dive for casually exploring the Powell River under-seascape. There are no facilities here, so take your water and lunch, and an extra tank! Drive 7km South of Lund, or 14km North of the Powell River bridge, then turn Southwest on Emmonds Road. The preceding roads you'll encounter from Lund are Malaspina, Dinner Rock, Old Mine, then Emmonds. The preceding roads you'll encounter from Powell River are Wilde, Southview, Gifford, Atrevida, Craig, then Emmonds.

Head straight out for about 100 meters, and you'll find a nice drop-off. This is a gravel pad at the end of the road. There is a residence to the left, so please be very quiet. You'll come to an intersection of three roads. Take the middle one. Keep a close eye on the road signs listed above. Emmonds has a well-maintained dirt road.

The images on the page here make it look easy to get into the water, not so.. there is lots of round rocks about the size of a softball all over the place, making it difficult to walk out to get into the water. My advice, CRAWL! It's a bit tricky to get in and out here. Watch your step. It's pretty much all sand bottom once you get a few feet from the shoreline. With little to see, except the odd fish. There isn't really much of a drop off until you get to the island out front of the beach. On the right end of the island the wall goes down to about 85+ feet. Lots of animal and plant life once your near the island.
