...(Continued from Cape Breton Artificial Reef page) -After diving the Cape Breton and lazing about during the surface interval, we headed back over to the other side of Snake Island to dive the Saskatchewan (366-foot destroyer-escort), which is right next to the Cape Breton. As at the Cape, the visibility cleared up nicely as we reached the wreck at the mast. Most of the wreck was completely covered in feather stars and a 50/50 mix of orange and white plumose anemones. We did the customary bridge swim-through and visited the gun on the bow. There was a small wolf eel poking it's head out of one of the gun barrels (I really wished I had my camera strobe for that, but it was still natural light photos for this dive). I didn't see as many large fish (lingcod, cabezon, etc.) that are common on the Mackenzie, but there were lots of medium-sized quillback rockfish, and that posing wolf eel definitely made up for it. We swam back aft and saw the other gun (removed on the Mackenzie) before heading back to the ascent line to avoid decompression. Overall, despite my Victoria-centric attitude, I think I prefer this wreck to the Mackenzie. Even though the Saskatchewan is deeper and I didn't see as many fish as on the Mackenzie, there is the potential for much better visibility here and I think there is a bit more invertebrate life so far. Plus you don't have to worry about current.
