The Wreck Trek PASSPORT Programme was developed by the Dive Industry Association of BC (DIABC), in conjunction with Tourism BC. TheWreck Trek PASSPORT Programme is fully supported by the dive stores and charter operators in British Columbia. It gives you, the diver, a great opportunity to win a number of prizes from gear to trips to courses – three draws over a two-year period!
The PASSPORT is a 24-page souvenir booklet you can use to track your dives on the various wrecks throughout BC. It encourages you to explore both the historic wrecks and the world class artificial reefs, both on the coast and the inland waters. Once you complete a featured dive, get an official sponsor to stamp your PASSPORT. Once you’ve completed all the featured dives, you’ll receive a Wreck Trek T-shirt and be eligible to enter one of the Wreck Trek draws.
The Wreck Trek Programme will feature these wrecks:
- GB Church
- Boeing 737
- Cape Breton
- SS Capilano
- MV Gulfstream
- Annapolis (Pending)
Please note: The order of the dives is not critical; divers are welcome to follow any route they wish. Divers simply need to have their PASSPORT stamped by official PASSPORT sponsors, who run charters to these dive sites, once they have complete that particular dive.
The Wreck Trek PASSPORT can be picked up for free in any participating store or charter operation in British Columbia or online at www.diveindustrybc.com. Once, the divers fill up their PASSPORT, they can go into any DIABC store in good standing, where the store will verify the PASSPORT, sign the Completion Certificate page. You send this page to the DIABC administration offices for a Wreck Trek t-shirt and entrance into a draw for terrific prizes that includes dive gear, trips and courses.
The coast of British Columbia has been voted as the number one place to dive in North America because of its proliferation of healthy marine life and unbelievably clear water. The variety of species, colors and dive sites along the 22,000 kilometers of shore have made the BC a must in the divers’ bucket list. And diving deeper into that bucket list there are lakes filled with ‘Gold Rush’ era paddle wheeler wrecks and disappearing rivers for the explorer.
Some of the most unique diving in the world!
