I was in Snug Cove on Bowen Island and wanted to see what it was like under water. On the right-hand point (when you are leaving the marina), the chart shows some kind of wall. On a depth sounder, the bottom is around 600 feet deep near shore. I took a boat around the point and descended to a rubble and boulder bottom. There were lots of rockfish, orange burrowing sea cucumbers, orange dead-man's finger sponges and sea stars here. Visibility was only around 5 feet in the shallows, but cleared up to around 40 feet at a depth of 30 feet or so (mid-August). As I went deeper, the bottom changed to a steep silty slope which turned into a rock wall at around 70 feet deep. I went down to 110 feet and obviously didn't reach the bottom. Parts of this wall were covered with feather stars (crinoinds) and brittle stars. There were also lots of boot sponges and a few small cloud sponges. Some of the boot sponges had small rockfish living in them. As I ascended up the wall I saw a group of quillback rockfish and further up, a group of copper rockfish. Back in the shallows, there was a rock surface completely covered with purple sea stars. While this dive is not as spectacular as Whytecliff or many other dives in Howe Sound, it was interesting to see what was down there.
