The cold water temperatures make for interesting life under the water, either in the coastal seas or in the inland lakes. Diving off the coast of British Columbia the water teems with invertebrate life, sea lions, juvenile rockfish and a host of anemones and urchins. The pinnacles and reefs are smothered by staghorn bryozoan which resembles that of a tropical reef in its palette of color alongside hydroids, scallops, and tubeworms.
On the opposite coast of Nova Scotia, there is a vast selection of whales. Killer, humpback, minke, right and pilot whales all make their home in these waters as does the giant bluefin tuna. You will also find the basking sunfish in these waters in search of the abundant jellyfish.
Inland, the freshwater lakes provide opportunities to see jellyfish, lake trout, and whitefish as you delve into the caves and wrecks in the numerous underwater reserves.
