Type of Dive: Boat Dive
General Description: McCurdy Point is located north east of White Lady. A buoy has been set for dive boats to tie up. There's a wall that runs north and south where octopuses and wolf eels are regularly sighted along with boot sponges at around 100 feet. If you dive east from the buoy there's a trench that leads down to some cloud sponges. In addition, the topography of this sight is amazing.
Access: For this dive, the Aquarius Too Dive Boat usually picks up divers at the Tsartlip Boat Ramp, Brentwood Bay.
Depth: There's a bit of a plateau where the buoy is at about 40 feet. You can follow the wall down to just over a hundred feet and if you head east out into the inlet the depths drop well below recreational dive limits.
What to see: As mentioned above Wolf Eels, Octopuses and Cloud Sponges are the big attractions, however, there is also a plethora of other sea life such as rock fish, ling cod, etc.
Hazards: The current generally doesn't present much of a challenge here, however, the wind can really pick up and can quickly cancel a dive. As always, keep an eye out for boat traffic in the inlet.
Dive Certification: This is a good dive for open water divers but by no means boring for advanced divers. Advanced certification with Deep and Dry Suit specialties is recommended.
