Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Okeover Provincial Park

Enter on the south side of the jetty. The jetty itself has a lot of small invertebrates and fish, but the most interesting stuff is the two small wrecks located south of the jetty. The easiest way to find the wrecks is to swim south from the jetty and keep yourself in water ~30' deep. Both wrecks lie between 30-40', and the slope is steep enough here that following the depth contour will take you straight to both wrecks. There is little current in the area, but lots of boat traffic. From Powell River, head north on highway 101 towards Lund. About 5km before Lund is a turnoff for Okover Provincial Park (Malispina Road). Turn right (east) onto this road and follow it to the park. The best diving is by the jetty found just south of the wharf.

Not the most interesting of dives. Most of the life is small, as are the wrecks. A good dive to do if you're looking for something new in the area, but there are many better sites nearby.
