I came here on Aug. 5, 2007 in a half-hearted attempt to look for the wreck of the Enterprise (see Funnel Cove page). I started at the North end of the beach and swam underwater towards the Royal Victoria Yacht Club marina. The bottom was flat sand with large areas covered in lettuce and bottom kelp. I made it about 3/4 of the way there, covering depths between 10-20 feet, and didn't see anything resembling wreckage. Of course, there wouldn't be much left after 130 years and any scraps that might remain would be covered by that bottom kelp. Visibility was around 20 feet, but near the bottom it seemed like there was lots of stirred-up sand. When I looked at it closely, the "sand" was swimming. It was some kind of almost-microscopic shrimp or something. On the sandy patches, there were swarms of snake pricklebacks, Irish lords, buffalo sculpins and even quite a few great sculpins (only the second time I've ever seen them). This was also the first place that I've seen halibut underwater. I saw around 4 of them lying on the bottom, each around 3 feet long. They were pretty shy and would dash off in a cloud of silt when I came within 6 feet or so. The areas covered with lettuce/bottom kelp had various gunnels, shrimp and spiny lumpsuckers. -Basically the kind of creatures you see when there's nothing else to see.
