I've been to Hornby Island Diving a few times and always have a fantastic weekend there. Amanda and Rob run an incredible operation in a perfect location on Hornby Island. The dive sites are so close, you come back to soup and other great food between dives. This last visit was spent visiting the sea lions, which makes for some...

Thank you for your review. It's helpful to have a review from a repeat customer. If you just visit once, later you wonder 'was it like I remembered it?'. But when you return and enjoy it a second, third, fourth time, this reinforces the quality of the experience. Many of our guests are repeat visitors. This is one of the...

Knowledgeable, professional, attentive, all the descriptions used to indicate great service apply to Hornby. Rob's skill and knowledge helped make for great dives. His dive boat had everyone in our group wishing it was ours. The compressor room is first class, exactly what people who pump their own gas want to see. From the first inquiry about booking a trip,...

Couldn't have asked for better hosts. The diving was phenomenal, the sea lions were all that I hoped for, and the food was delicious! The variety of dive sites available nearby was great! I can't wait to go back!

Amanda and Rob's hospitality is second to none. I felt as though I was a guest in their own home and the resort is exceptionally clean and well designed. The dive boat is very well laid out giving every diver lots of space to gear up. And, of course, the Sea Lions put on a fantastic show.

Thank you for your review. This reviewer was part of a group of active BC divers who were new to our resort. We were happy to show them around 'our back yard', and happy they enjoyed the experience.

Hornby Island Diving has some of the nicest dive accommodations I've ever seen. Super clean, lots of room, fantastic social areas - in fact the place is so nice, you almost don't want to dive! But you should. The diving is great and all within about ten minutes of the lodge. The dive boat is very spacious, and custom made...

This reviewer has 'been around', as they say ;) So this is a high compliment. We are a little biased, but we agree that our boat is very versatile for many different types of dive gear configuration. Thank you for your kind words.

Thank you Rob and Amanda and your entire staff. I came for the diving among Sealions but you delivered so much more. From the moment I arrived I was treated, and felt, like family. Your Lodge is well appointed for divers with clean comfortable rooms, available areas for storing, rinsing, and otherwise maintaining my equipment, and even a sauna to...

Thank you for your review. We are glad you felt welcome and that your stay was comfortable. Winter wetsuit divers are a tough breed. Keeping you warm and well fed is the least we could do.

Went to dive here with sea lions at Hornby Island. The resort isn't glamorous, but has everything needed to take excellent care of scuba divers. The lodge is roomy, clean, and comfortable. There's a drying room for gear, plus racks for hanging suits. Delicious, abundant food at every meal(plus leftovers for snacking!). The owners work to make sure everyone's needs...

I joined a group of freedivers for a trip to Hornby Island Diving. It was my first time to the lodge and I loved it. Rob and Amanda are wonderful hosts, the food was amazing, the rooms very comfortable, and the whole experience was brilliant.

Thank you Rob and Amanda for a great weekend of diving. This was my second trip and my friends and I felt very welcomed and at home. The resort house is great for groups. It is nice and warm after each dive and very close to the boat. The food is excellent as well.
