Everybody's been to the Willis Point shore dive site, but I wanted to see what it was like at the actual "Willis Point" on the chart. I had access to a boat one afternoon so we went over to the Brentwood Bay side of the point. The visibility in the top 30 feet or so was only about 10 feet, but cleared up to about 50 feet deeper down (typical Saanich Inlet). The first thing I saw was a dogfish shark cruising by. It didn't stick around long enough for a picture. A wall dropped down from near the surface to a sandy bottom at about 50-60 feet. Parts of the wall were covered with lightbulb tunicates and there were small "caverns" and cracks with strange encrusting sponges in them. In the sand there were lots of giant nudibranchs. One was swimming through the water by flexing back and forth. Others were harassing the tube-dwelling anemones. Red jellyfish were everywhere (it was mid-July). I swam out from the base of the wall for about 50 feet and came to a series of boulders and walls going down deeper. I went down to 120 feet looking for sponges, but I didn't see any in the small area I explored. There were a few plumose anemones, rockfish and lingcod. This dive was similar to many of the other Saanich Inlet dives, but it's nice to explore a new place where you don't know every single rock.
